+Tech and weather package and a few things like carpets.
$38,430 + tax (essentially 31k after federal rebate) about 2k under invoice.
A substantially better equipped car then the 35k or 40k Tesla 3, and a bit cheaper with longer range...
No on longer range. I paid $37k for my Model 3 SR+ a few months ago and it has more range than the E+ (SR+ 240 miles EPA vs. E+ 226 miles EPA).
True, since we get only half the federal tax credit, the final price is a bit higher. But this is our primary vehicle, so supercharging, though not a requirement, is a big plus. We go to visit family in SoCal in a few weeks and will put on >1200 miles round trip. This would be a PITA with our current 30kWh Leaf, very soon to have 40kWh Leaf, or even an E+.
Still good to have options, and one size does not fit all...
Going to pickup our secondary vehicle, my wife's newest daily driver, a 2019 40kWh Leaf SV on lease in a few hours.
