Lastly, there's some nice information for all of the European Mannequin three reservation holders and all of the folks in Europe within the Tesla Mannequin three. With a number of sources citing the identical info, evidently the uscarmaker has not solely launched the Mannequin three configurator for many international locations in Western Europe but additionally, a extremely seemingly February 2019 supply date is rumored.
In response to Electrek, the data revealed lists a German beginning price ticket of 57,900 euro for the Mannequin three Lengthy Vary, whereas 68,600 euro is the bottom worth for the range-topping, Tesla Mannequin three Efficiency.

As compared, the brand new BMW G30 330i begins at 44,950 euro, placing the Tesla means above its worth smart.
