. . . Electrek was able to get ahold of an email to Tesla employees that speaks to a $400 increase to all Model 3 vehicles. It's important to note that this includes the cars that are no longer listed on the automaker's website. So, "off-menu" trim levels like the $35,000 Standard Range Model 3, as well as the Long Range RWD are impacted.
In terms of feature changes, Tesla told Electrek that the Long Range RWD Model 3 will now get Autopilot as standard. We weren't aware that the feature wasn't already standard since Tesla said all vehicles now include Autopilot. However, we did learn that the "off-menu" $35,000 Standard Range car wasn't included in "all Tesla vehicles."
Apparently, the Long Range RWD didn't include Autopilot either, though it does now, and with that comes a greater price increase than the $400 hike for all other variants.
Now, the least expensive Model 3 on Tesla's website will be listed at $39,900. The Standard Range car will start at $35,400 and the Long Range RWD will see a $1,400 price increase in the U.S. and a $1,000 increase (or market equivalent) abroad.
