      I am also torn between Model 3 Performance and Model Y Performance when its here. The difference in range is a bit much :(

  •  

    I took one for a test drive a couple of months ago and the sales assistant adamantly dismissed my concerns of a price drop coinciding with the soon to be released model Y.

    •  

      Model Y is still a year away from release here in Australia though isn't it?

      • +1 vote

        Doubt it, they are churning them out in China now, and they are the main supplier of Australian Model 3 (and presumably Y).

    •  

      Sales assistants are there to help with a sale today. They're unlikely to have any more info on pricing strategy than the next person. The classic factors of increased competition - including their own Y release - should help bring the costs down over time but there are other variables such as currency variations and government (dis)incentives. The only known variable is that Tesla release dates are rarely met so if you're keen today, grab it. You'll wonder why you waited.

    Australian states other than ACT still charge rego and its freaking expensive, also last i checked a model 3 the cheapest insurance i could find was 3k per yr.

    Most other developed countries are offering cheap /free rego and numerous tax breaks for EVs where Aussie politicians now have introduced 2.5c/km additional tax i think in SA and Victoria.. Its insane.

      Yeah, the dinosaurs in charge are either willfully ignorant or being compensated for making the path the electric vehicle ownership harder.

      new taxes will always come - petrol cars and fuel is heavily taxed and provides a nice little revenue, if electric cars become more popular the same will follow sooner or later
      same as free Tesla charge - thats not a thing anymore

        It was kind of factored into the price though.

            @Naigrabzo: Their cars have always been top tier. Why would they make a cheap electric car at this point in time (if ever?)? My point is op was comparing manufacturers that are on completely different levels

            •  

              @Nedkellyinthebush: Top tier in price. but not really top tier in anything else. They 'used' to be better than Japanese cars but no more.

              Now they are simply more expensive for no good reason.

              Merc and BMW don't need to make any electric cars or cheap ones.

              They absolutely can be compared to a Tesla or even a Mazda/Lexus. The latter offer way better luxury, features and value. The former offers better price placebo for the owner.

              Not only their expensive electrics be compared to everything else but also Tesla which happens to be most experienced in that space with phenomenal self drive capability. Mercs have babyish automation and updates compared to a Tesla.

              You always compare to the gold standard when something new comes. The 'new' offerings from Merc and BMW are an absolute joke. Even Audi electric is such a disappointment!

    •  

      I could be wrong I don't think the performance (or even LR) version is made in China. The batteries they use in China have lower power density so can be used in SR+ but would not fit in the LR version. But my information can be outdated, so worth double-checking.

      Edited: Not LR, only Performance version

      Highly probable the Performance will also come from Shanghai given the 6-10 delivery window being quoted.

      •  

        Performance model was being quoted as a 12 week delivery back in January.
        It's actually longer though - more like 16-18 weeks.

        So yeah, if coming from Shanghai, you'd hope they could shave half of that off maybe.

    Is price cut due to Made In China Model 3 with different battery chemistry?

    •  

      Only the SR+ has the new battery type whereas all variants received the price drop. So, probably just cheaper to manufacture and ship from China than Freemont. Plus volumes are increasing.

    •  

      price cut has nothing to do with china

      it's based on the AUD which was in the mid 60s the last time the price was set

      these currency adjustments happen ever 6 months or so

        Last price drop was in September 2020, AUD hardly moved since then.

      You're talking about Full Self-Driving (FSD) which is an optional extra purchase and is currently early in development. It's true it doesn't have all it's features but you also don't have to buy it - so I don't see how that is relevant for the purposes of a review.

      • +2 votes

        You're a fool if you think FSD is actually 'full self driving'. Max level 2 so it's a total marketing name https://www.thedrive.com/tech/39647/tesla-admits-current-ful...

        • +5 votes

          It would be equally foolish to assume it will stay the same and not improve with constant iteration.

          Check youtube FSD beta for videos of a current build. Not fully released to public yet but this is a demonstration of capability.

        • +1 vote

          'FSD' is the marketing term for a suite of technologies. The (big) missing feature is "Autosteer on city streets" which is currently in beta with hundreds of people and expending pretty quickly.

          Nobody has bought FSD thinking their car can drive itself unless they have the IQ of a gnat.

          You can buy it or not, so why bitch about it? Just don't if you don't like it.

          • +2 votes

            @apiecost: I will sell you some magic beans. They aren't magic yet and i just use 'magic' for the name - but we have a plan to make them magic and you should totally buy them now before we raise the prices on them.

            The reality is that FSD isn't full self driving and may never be. You're buying something and hoping for it to happen.

            I'd totally buy a tesla (Model Y if available), I just wouldn't get the FSD right now as it seems like a money pit with no real timeline on its release and exactness of its feature set.

            As someone who's studied machine learning, i can tell you it's a really hard problem and again you'd be a fool to just drop your money on something unproven.

            •  

              @eddyah: Again, buy it or not, why complain about it? Nobody is making you do anything. It's an unfinished set of features - I don't get why armchair "experts" need to point out that it's unfinished (… DUH!)

              I don't have FSD, however the standard autopilot features are brilliant already. Not sure why are you schooling me on what I should or shouldn't buy.
