Is the UK getting the mid level Tesla 3? They mention a 60kW battery and 254-300ish miles of range. It’s also significantly more expensive then the SR+ here.

I'm just wondering why they'd compare the Model 3 to those two when the Model X is the closest competitor, at least until the Model Y shows up.

Was watching a video on the 3 and the noticed that the SR+ appears to use the same tire type as the Leaf (Michelin energy savers). Is that accurate?

Not sure if you've changed your tires, but the OEM tires for the leaf are Bridgestone Ecopia's. So they didn't start off the same, but your current setup might have the same. Although "Michelin energy savers" doesn't ring a bell as to the specific model.

My LR RWD (should be the same as with any tesla with 18" wheels) has the base tires and they're Michelin Primacy MXM4to green (low-rolling resistance, foam inside, and supports heavy load) V-rated (the leaf can use T, U, and H rated tires - why spend more for features you can't use?).

2019 Plus SV and SL have Michelin X green energy savers a/s tires. 215/50 17 inch.

Those are the stock tires. The S has the cheaper tires.

ah. Didn't know the SV and SL's had different tires. Anyway, seems you have your answer now.

Different tires and a smaller diameter as well. My S was a 16" rim with a hubcap and Ecopias while the SV (and SL) are on a 17" rim with no hubcap and Energy Savers.

The Ecopias were pretty cheap to replace (lasted 40k miles) at the local Firestone store, not sure about these new ones yet hopefully I don't find out for a few years.

Telsa 3 sales have started to inch higher again in Norway after a few months of almost nothing. EGolf and Nissan still battling for the monthly sales lead.

The 1 big month of model 3 puts it ahead for the year, but still has a long way to go to catch the other cars.

I wouldn't worry too much about monthly differences in sales data. Everything currently comes out of the Fremont factory, and they try to minimize shipping costs, so deliveries will always come out lumpy.

Model 3 sales might not beat out e-golf this year, or the leaf next year, but it inevitably will.

Thought this was interesting:

Indiana police department swaps Dodge Charger for Tesla Model 3

From the prices listed, it appears that the model being used is the SR+. From the picture it has the base 18 inch aero wheels without the covers.
