Model 3 lowest cost in Aus?

Post by doggy » Tue, 18 Jun 2019, 09:35

Does anyone know:

a. What is the cheapest (incl on road costs) you can get a Model 3 in Australia?

b. What correlation is there between the Tesla quoted range (for the Model 3) and real world driving (1. around town and 2. 110km/hr on the freeway)?

Thanks,
Dave

Thank you!
I am not thinking of getting rid of Zoe. However, it is tempting to replace our second car- turbo diesel Peugeot 508GT- with one of these.
Any idea how far the base model can travel at 110km/hr on the flat?
Cheers,
Dave

About 340km at 110kph in the SR+.

Here's a trip of 327km (100% => 4% SOC) from Gundagai to Violet Town - 110kph the whole way - https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_u ... 29680d8655.

The last table on the following page breaks it down to different Tesla models and speeds - https://teslike.com/range/. I think it is a little optimistic in its statement of 381km for 113kph hence my suggested 340km at 110kph would be closer to the mark.

This was on Car Sales https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/detail ... 239/?Cr=65 around $130 more than the one Brendan found, but unknown what city that price is based on.
