Tesla is apparently moving to retire the $35,000 entry-level Model 3 before shipping the first units, though Autopilot comes standard and customers can now lease the vehicle.
Today, we're making some changes to online ordering to simplify vehicle choices and make Autopilot more affordable.

Since autopilot features are denied in the standard version, it means opting for Plus brings about a price hike of $2,500. Autopilot, which was as optional feature previously (costing $3,000), is now standard on the vehicles. The Standard Range Plus used to cost $37,500 plus $3,00 for Autopilot, but the most recent increase in price translates to the adoption of Autopilot as standard. If customers want those additions, they will need to upgrade to the $39,500 Standard Plus model by paying the difference.

Let's take a look at the base pricing in each European country, compared to the other Model 3 variants.
Tesla is restructuring how it sells the Model 3 since the Standard Plus trim option has been selling on average six times more than the base model auto. "There isn't any other way". In February, he announced the cars were ready to ship, although no delivery date was named. Plus, we know the original price is going to be around $55.000.
