    Tesla Model 3






    I was watching the trannie introduce the Tesla 3 in Italy. They've been producing them at 5000 a week for over a year now. Reckon they will be selling in Thailand by now and delivered.


    Very efficient. What are the delivery times like elsewhere? 2 years on Portland it seems. Would it be quicker to get one imported into Thailand?

    why it should cost so much when the production is much less costly than of the combustion models?

    Tesla Model 3 price slashed in the UK: How much it costs - Model S and Model X changes

    TESLA has slashed the price of the Model 3 in the UK with prices now starting at 37,340 bringing it closer to the 35,000 entry-level target price.

    I think I've seen a Tesla in Thailand. I took a photo as I was driving so it's not the best photo. I'll see if I can find it so you can confirm if it's a Tesla or not.

    should be cheap to import since import duties in Thailand are based on engine cc capacity, but I am sure they found a way to apply some other duties to make up for it

    TELSA Model 3 does feel a bit cheap, there are 5 of them in my neighborhood, they are small, and feel like an expensive Fiat Panda if you get my drift

    OMG what bullshit. I have been in a Model 3 as passenger for a week. It may not be a battleship but it is more than comfortable sized for 5 passengers. If you cut a Fiat Panda in 2 pieces they may fit in the two trunks, front and back, ok that's slightly exaggerated.

    the FIAT Panda was a lightweight car compared to its peers,

    and I feel the TELSA 3 is the same, in terms of outside perception, it feels lightweight compared to other Sedan in that category

    So you mean they use less velvet and wood paneling to give an artificial impression of value. A Tesla does not need that, it has inherent value.

    BTW Daimler has announced they stop developing combustion engines and switch over to developing electric drive trains. Does not mean they will terminate building them but it is a first step in the right direction.

    Loads of competition on the market nowadays.
    Most car manufacturers make hybred or totally electric models now.
    Tesla and Musk are old news.
