Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus $66,900 + On Roads (Was $73,900 + OR) @ Tesla

6880

Greetings everyone, this was originally posted on the weekend but was removed due to a lack of information, but thought it was best to share again as it's a substantial discount :)


As per the Drive Article:

The price of the Tesla Model 3 has dropped substantially for the Australian market, in line with upgrades to the electric sedan's interior and exterior design and technology features and claimed electric range figures.

The base Standard Range Plus model is now priced from $66,900 before on-road costs – representing a decrease of $7000 on previous pricing – while its quoted range has received a 30km boost, now extending to 490km on a single charge (according to the NEDC test).

The mid-spec Long Range variant has dropped to $83,425 before on-road costs, a price cut of $6000, while its quoted range has climbed to 657km, up from the previous 620km (an increase of 37km).

Finally, the top-of-the-range Performance variant now costs $92,425 before on-road costs, or $5000 less than before, and offers a claimed range of 628km – marking the largest range increase in the line-up with a boost of 68km.

Surprisingly, while prices have decreased, the level of standard equipment on offer has been either upgraded or revised.


All prices listed above exclude on-road costs, but include Tesla's mandatory $150 order fee and $1375 delivery fee.


As always, enjoy :)

        I was hoping Tesla would make some announcements at the battery day about just this ability. Elon made a couple of comments that people didn't really want vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) technology. I'd love a big battery to connect to my house that I could then drive to work! Far cheaper than the equivalent set of Powerwalls. I guess that's half his problem with it.

          Can do this already by adding an inverter to any EV / PHEV for under $500. I put a 3kw inverter on mine. Charge off solar. Caravan type plug to power the house. Issue is accelerated battery degradation. But for drawing the mid 30% of the battery capacity, the degradation is basically nothing. But people will draw the lot and kill it early..Would be tricky to monitor for warranty purposes, so it's easier to simply not offer it.

          • @tunzafun001: EV's are approved electrical storage (may vary by locale) for Off Peak electricity rates (like for electric hot water heaters).

            For some reason, Solar Batteries can't take advantage of the same rates to charge from the grid.

            • @norkle: Yeah, I was charging at 19c (controlled load) with my solar feed in being 17c.
              Now have a solar battery, so the controlled load hasn't been touched. Might do on a hot AC on all night situation.

              I thought charging a solar battery with controlled load was allowed (load shifting?)

              I will ask as I just got mine installed.

          The issue is wear and how to quantify it. Tesla have warranties for their pack based on car usage, not home usage. It would be quite complicated i presume.

          • @diakop: Wear will only really occur if your home's system actually drains the car battery as part of the nightly cycle in winter.

            Once you have one or more on-premises batteries installed, being able to add the car's battery to the pack might be something you want just in case there is a once in a blue-moon extended outage.

            That's the only way I'd do it, so this feature (V2I) is something I would want in an EV. For me it's more about having the option to power the house when and only when my home's reserve is short of power.

            • @resisting the urge: This is what I have setup with the car inverter (for free, thanks Kogan money). Will only use it in extreme cases as I have 2 home solar batteries anyway.

        Nothing really wrong with a camry…

        Other than how fkn low the front bumper is to the ground. Does not work with the high kerb at the front of so many parking bays. Ours was replaced once (accident) and the new one is dinged to buggery from kerbs even though we now have a good appreciation of the car size.

        • -9

          Definitely nothing wrong with it! It's the people and their mindset on here that's wrong…only thinking that Toyota is the hands down go to brand or Mazda or Kia…most on here can't actually afford better cars so they find any reason to neg European brands/more expensive brands to make themselves feel better.

          • @SelfMade: I like feeling better.
            Also like lighting money on fire and donating to my mechanic's kids college fund.

            Which is why i think my next car will be an Audi
            (Currently driving a Kia btw, and i just want something to break so i can fix it)

            • -12

              @Drakesy: Enjoy your Kia, some of us like nicer things in life and can afford it too. Also, can you believe some of us made our own money without getting a cent from daddy or from family connections!

              • +1

                @SelfMade: I think you have the wrong impression of ozbargainers.

                If you look at the results of the previous survey ozbargain is actually made up of a majority of high net worth individuals $100k+.

                Not sure why the personal attack. Everything I've ever owned is self made pardon the pun, from my education to my 100k salary. But you seem to have it out for people living frugally. Yes my next car will be an audi, not because it makes sense but because I want to feel good rather than get in a bland kia and can afford it, which I feel is a reasonable argument.

                Yes the kia is a good reliable car and I would happily drive it till the day I die, but at the end of the day we work hard for a reason so why not enjoy it.

                • -4

                  @Drakesy: The thing is I also lived frugally upto my mid 20's and saved a considerable amount for someone that age. However, I realised that if I was to achieve any of my dreams I had to take more calculated risks and think outside the box and the more I started reading and listening to people with actual wealth the more my mindset started to shift and to think differently about money. I then started to save to invest instead of just to save.

                  The biggest thing for me though was that I thought about how do I earn more instead of how do I save more. It's quite a considerable shift in thinking and because of that funnily enough I've been able to save a lot more because I'm making a lot more.

        I wouldn’t be surprised at all if a decent amount of OZB were high net worth individuals. OZB users have a similar mindset. Just because someone likes to look for discounts doesn’t mean they’re poor.

        • -25

          I would bet that most on here are in their 20's and have not much money at all. Many here have the mindset of purely saving…which is better than those who live on credit cards and don't know how to manage their money, but trying to save everything at all costs is a poor mentality too…you won't get weathly that way.

          • +16

            @SelfMade: I don't speak for everyone but people like me use OZB to find the cheapest price for an item. Why would I pay $120 for an item that is worth $100 from a different place that I wouldn't have known about if it wasn't for OZB? It's a good tool for tracking item prices and knowing what something is actually worth. The occasional funny joke in the comments is a bonus.

            Am I in my 20s? Yes

            Can I afford to buy a new Lamborghini every second Wednesday? No

            Do I use OZB to find bargains so I can scrounge my way up to become richer than Jeff Bezos? Also No

            Hotel? Trivago

            The people on this website aren't here seeking financial advice. We have the money. We just also have a mutual hatred for being ripped off.

I've just learnt a better way of thinking through learning from those who have actually got wealth and are living life on their terms. I didn't want to be working until I was 65 in a job.

        I love the idea of a Model 3, but your lexus build quality would dwarf the model 3.

        Also, no V2I for the Model 3 is pathetic. They want people to buy Telsa Powerwall batteries for their homes, not use their cars.

        Autopilot is great. Road noise is pretty ordinary as they cut down on noise insulation to reduce weight + increase range.

        Apart from that, the build quality is shit. It's a crappy American car, which consistently scores near the bottom of the US customer satisfaction ratings for quality…

        Sadly, I think I'll wait a few more years.

        • +3

          To be honest all these horror stories about build quality are overrrated. For eg interiors are all soft plastic in Model 3, even places where my lexus is hard cheap plastic. Not sure what you mean by V2I?

          Also not sure what your definition of build quality, but most Tesla cars are the top of their class when it comes safety and were IIHS top picks. The Model X even broke their scoring system. Dont listen to bullcrap daily media propagates about the brand. Tesla is fighting two big lobbies - the fuel lobby and the car manufacturers lobby.

          Whats crapy about an ev which offers most miles per $ spent, most performance per $ spent and is the only ev brand to have cars which have done million kms. Also want to ask you, how are america cars crappy and european cars arent?

          • @dealsucker: V2I (Vehicle to Infrastructure). Use your car battery to provide electricity to your house, store your solar energy, and/or store your power providers electricity at off peak rates for use at anytime.

            • @rifter: They could enable it any time via software if they wanted to but their reasoning is that your car isnt connected to grid all the time, its not charging all the time either. Second no matter which chemistry, it can only do so many charge and discharge cycles. If I was an owner of an electric car I would perhaps not connect it to the grid lest is depletes the charge cycles. The Powerwall makes much more sense since it is always connected and is purpose built for this. In anycase, they might change their mind in the future in which case all it needs is a software update.

            • @rifter: Yeah, you know why they don't do that? Charge cycles. Cars have a finite number of them, enough to get you about 400-500,000km at the moment. But charge and discharge every night, instead of once a week, and that 500,000km quickly becomes 80,000km. You want a battery to provide power for your house? You need a different chemistry. It's why they make Powerwalls a stand alone product.

        • Yea that's one thing that's let's it down when compared to it's European competitors…but where I think Tesla is severely lacking is in the styling department. They don't look that great compared to their rivals.

      I have the Model 3 SR+. It ruins the driving experience of every other car I drive. Easily the most amazing car I have driven and only one that gets better every few months instead of worse (constant software upgrades does things like increase milage, speed, various other improvements).

            It’s mental. https://vimeo.com/253258542

            • @DunDeel: it depends on what you call winning. If being fast on the road, makes people happy, then yes Tesla is good for them. But for me the fun factor from purist car can never be had form an electric one. Besides, the Alfa 4C is one of the sexiest cars on earth. No one talks about Tesla if you think classy. No competition there
