There’s been some construction going on in a shopping center parking lot right by my house. Couldn’t figure out what they were building. Yesterday it dawned on me that it’s a 6 stall charging site. For giggles I went on the Supercharger site and sure enough it said, Windsor CA coming Q1 2021.
It’s a great site for one, just off 101, with food, hotels etc easy walk right there.
I’ll let you know if it is laid out to support a tow thru.

Leave it to the crews of Giga Texas to show how it's done once again! Not only are we learning how a building goes up at break-neck speed, but we now have learned what to do with all of the snow and ice that has befallen the Austin area! So simple when there's proper motivation and resources!

Wait a minute, didn't they promise a "low cost" model that never really materialized? Well, it kind of did, but this appears to be another "I'll believe it when I actually see it in the flesh".

Heck, they're still working on getting the semi from 3 years ago, and the pickup from two yeas ago, out and about.

But anything to keep the hype alive.

The base M3 was available for the promised $35,000 for at least a limited time.
Current base M3 is $37,990 in the US.

The M2 is slated for the China market and could be a bit before it gets to the US.

Yes. That is the elephant in the room. They haven't produced the base Model 3 they promised so why would they make this low margin car when they are a capacity with the higher profit vehicles.

They need to keep perfecting the middle/higher level product and branch out to new markets later.

Tesla did produce their base model for awhile. It didn’t sell well and for the extra 3000 bucks the plus model seemed like a worthwhile upgrade for many. At 36900 they’ll still sell a ton of cars and it’s actually pretty good bang for the buck.

Jmho.
