Tesla has discontinued the mid-range version of the Model 3, introduced in October 2018. The version had only been an interim solution to offer customers in the USA, looking to take advantage of the full US tax credit at the time.
With the basic version of the Model 3 for $35,000 introduced earlier this month and the slightly higher-range “Standard Range Plus” version, these are currently the only alternatives to the Model 3 with the “Long Range” battery.
Meanwhile, European customers still have to wait until Model 3 can be ordered in the “Standard Range”. According to CEO Elon Musk, it will take about six months before the model with the smallest battery will also be available in Europe.
There is also news regarding a trailer hitch: According to Teslas design head of unit Franz von Holzhausen, both the Model 3 and the newly introduced Model Y will feature a trailer hitch.
