According to a new tweet by CEO Elon Musk, the 2019 Tesla Model 3 EV now costs as little as $35,000, the target figure he — and investors — have been eyeballing since the car was first announced.
An $1,100 price cut was all it took to get there. Mission accomplished, right? Not exactly.
According to Musk, that price point not only includes tax credits (which were recently halved on the federal level after Tesla reached a production milestone), it also includes estimated fuel savings.
