Electric car juggernaut, Tesla, has finally revealed the Australian pricing for the Model 3, which is the most affordable car it currently has on offer.

The Model 3 is a fairly standard 4-door sedan and comes with most of the trimmings a Tesla fan would likely be after, like its autopilot technology. You won’t be able to let the thing drive itself completely yet, but you can add the option for a cool $7,100, which allows auto lane changing and auto parking abilities for now, with more to come down the line.

Right, yes, ok, the price. The Standard Range Plus Model 3 is $66,000 before on-road costs and the souped-up Performance version will set you back $85,000.

The standard version can allegedly travel a distance of 460km per full charge and hit a top speed of 225km/h, while the Performance has a range of 560km and hit a top speed of 261km/h. The latter can go from rest to 100km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds, which is just fucking crazy.

Each version comes with a 15-inch touchscreen which hangs out in the middle of the dashboard. Here, you’ll control things like air conditioning, radio, navigation, and all that jazz.

If you’re keen to jump on a fancy electric car, Tesla has opened up orders with a delivery time around August. Those who put down a $1,500 deposit over three years ago will obviously be first in line when the shipment arrives.
