The most affordable Tesla Model 3 you can get online in Canada is the Standard Range Plus which has a displayed price of $39,000. In Germany, Tesla is charging a base price of 44,500 euros (plus a handling fee of 980 euros) for this version, which offers a WLTP range of 415 km. However, without the model listed on the website, Tesla is keeping customers in the dark about its availability.

A software-limited Standard Plus means the range is reduced by 10 percent and onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization, and heated seats features are disabled.

The company adds anyone who decides to software-limit a Standard Range Plus to Standard Range specification can do so (at any time) and receive a refund for the difference in costs.

The long-range, rear-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 will not be available online, either.

Cars that come with Autopilot standard will cost more than the base models used to - though less than what the option added on would have cost.

Disney's Streaming Service (Finally!) Gets Launch Date, Price Details
The streaming service launches on November 12 in the United States with prices set at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. Fans can finally prepare for the highly-anticipated Disney Plus streaming service, which debuts later this year.

In a blog post late Thursday, Tesla said customers wanting the $35,000 version of the Model 3 would have to make the purchase by phone or in person at one of its stores.

Tesla said Model 3 Standard Plus has a range of 240 miles and it is enjoying 6 times more demand than the Model 3 Standard Range. The lease runs for 36 months, and lessees can choose from three annual mileage allotments - 10,000, 12,000 or 15,000 miles per year.

In February, Tesla delivered on its long-awaited promise of offering a $35,000 Model 3. That likely puts the Model 3 Standard Range's price at about $37,000 or possibly $38,000. A longer range and additional features will be switched on in the $39,500 vehicle, known as the Standard Plus model.

Tesla has not commented on the profitability of its different models, But it will make more money on what it calls the Standard Plus, which will start at $39,500. These prices are what Tesla estimates the auto will really cost after incentives and gas savings. These cars will be upgraded over-the-air with full autonomy according to Tesla, which plans to use those Model 3s "in the Tesla ride-hailing network". However, there's a catch - buyers will not get a chance to own their respective Model 3 at the end of their lease.
