    I definitely want to get one.

    Edit: The cheapest electric car overall is the Mini Cooper SE which is $29900 but it's only a 2 door.

    The cheapest 4 door is the Nissan leaf which is $31,600

    If you don't have a place to have your own installed you can just charge your car once a week at a super charger station the same way you stop for gas to fill up your car now.

    They're nowhere near only 35k. That was the initial 'promise', but it never materialized. I think about 50k US is the cheapest trim level they currently come in.

    We bought my wife a (new at the time) 2019 Nissan Leaf for 37k Canadian (about 24k US). Not as nice, nor does it get the same mileage from a full charge, as the Tesla. But it was 1/2 the price and it's still an awesome car.

    Except the $35k model only goes 220 miles on a charge, and it takes 30-60 minutes to charge. You'd need to get the extended range model, and that's more like $60k. A friend has one, it's nice but until you can charge it more quickly it's not practical for me.

    If you're in Europe and Asia, the Model 3s are produced in China.

    The SR+ starts around 38. I have one. The SR, you can get and it’s off the menu but why? You get less range, and no autopilot for 35.

    The + they advertise that you 250(The refreshed one says 263) miles with a full charge. It is closer to the 240s but depends on weather, if it’s colder you get less and how you drive it. So, in essence, like a normal car. It is worth it. Great car, the sound system could be a bit better but the drive is very good.
