Three years after it was first announced, Tesla‘s Model 3 is now available for $35,000 in the United States, The Verge reported Thursday.


“We are incredibly excited to announce that the standard Model 3, with 220 miles of range, a top speed of 130 mph and 0-60 mph acceleration of 5.6 seconds is now available at $35,000!” the company announced in a blog post. “Although lower in cost, it is built to achieve the same perfect 5-star safety rating as the longer-ranged version, which has the lowest probability of injury of any car ever tested by the U.S. Government.”

This is now the cheapest electric vehicle on offer from the company, bringing the Model 3 price-point down from the $42,900 it went for after a price reduction this February.

“From the beginning, this has been the goal,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on a press call reported by The Verge. “It’s an incredible car.”

The car is available to order now online in the U.S. and will be available in Europe and China in three to six months.

In addition to the newly-discounted Model 3, Tesla also announced other variations on the car at newly low prices, including a Model 3 Standard Range Plus for $37,000 that gets 240 miles on the charge and a Mid Range for $40,000 that gets 264 miles per charge.

The move squares with the goal of the company as announced by Musk in 2017, according to USA Today.


“The whole point of Tesla was to build a great affordable electric car,” Musk said when the first Model 3s were released.
