Model 3 combines real world range, performance, safety and spaciousness into a premium sedan that only Tesla can build. Our most affordable car yet, Model 3 achieves 215 miles of range per charge while starting at only 35,000 USD before incentives. Model 3 is designed to attain the highest safety ratings in every category.
You can even make your reservation in the UK with a £1,000 deposit – for a $35,000 USD however.
Comparing figures of US vs UK Model S prices, one could guesstimate that Model 3 Final UK price could be within 35k mark, thereabouts.
My advise? Buy Tesla Shares. They have indeed gone strength to strength, and looking back 3 years ago, i should have taken my own medicine and gone into it when i though it was sensible. i still do. Im in not position to offer financial advise, but merely opinion. And with 20/20 hindsight, its as good as any.
Now, back to the serious fact, as of April 2016, I’m still with a single car in my household and its a Renault Twizy. My next “all electric car” is nowhere to be found. I was thinking BMW i3, but now with the announcement of Model 3… im… at a loss. nothing else could do, surely. I must get this one.
Time will tell, i should really start putting pennies in that bank account, or shares 😉

I have poked about the long distance EV trip for a while. However each time i can close to realising that trip, – something Else always came up. I began doubting the actual excuses (however real and plausible) and even contemplated whether its subliminal reluctance, or the amount of planning that has to go into any EV trip what put me off.
Weeks following the “inception” of such #evtrip, i finally found “enough is enough”, and its time to “Just do it”.
Apologies for possible excessive “speech” marks i tend to go with, but quotes are quotes, merely respecting the literacy.
Ok, Lets be fair, the #evTrip idea has become more balsy, once Robert Llewellyn and David Peilow have successfully completed the #evtrip from London to Edinburgh! It was truly inspiring and furthered the realisation how far we have really come. A year ago, in my all electric Citroen Czero (as per blog’s original domain name) i barely made trips to Brighton and Oxford, gleaming of joy whenever it was a hitch-free ride.
I wont lie, travelling on all electric car, with maximum range, as showed as 80 odd miles on motorway (or tad less) on even MK2 EV being Nissan Leaf Acenta is, was, rather quite daunting. Afterall we’re talking about 155 miles each way on average. Thats nearly twice of the car’s all electric range. » Read the rest of this entry «
