Is FSD worth having in the UK? Will any of it actually be useable in the near future?
The Model 3 is now available to order in the UK, June delivery currently expected.
Pricing after PICG from £38,900 (SR+).
£47,900 for LR Dual Motor and £56,900 for Performance. Just as an aside that means you'll have to pay the premium car VED (£310/year for years 2-6) even on the SR+.
Autopark and Summon will both work now. Autopark is OK but I find it tediously slow so never use it. Summon is quite handy at times though, I often summon mine out of the garage if I have my daughter with me so I can keep hold of her at the same time.
No PCP option Too expensive to buy on HP so will need to wait. I can afford the SR+ on HP but really want the LR.
I would go with Autopilot only for now and then replace in 3/4 years when legislation, etc is all sorted for FSD.
Have a referral link in case anyone is looking for one - message via trust as don't think we're allowed to advertise the link directly.
Standard Range Plus - £38050
Long Range - £47050
Not sure if that is with grants, going to play with the configurator now and see which one (if any) can work.
Going to get a dirt cheap lease car for a couple of years then look at these.
Estimated delivery times seem rather quick?
That is net of grants (i.e. all three models will incur premium road tax).
I was thinking the same.
LR dual motor ordered with FSD in grey, black interior. Kids wanted black exterior but I'll be forever cleaning the damn thing.
So the one that I would want
Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive
Deep Blue Metallic Paint
19’’ Sport Wheels
All Black Premium Interior
is a £50k car. Too rich for me as my main car is normally only used 6-8 days a month (work from home and long journeys to airports/family).
I know there are fuel savings but that's future Paul's problem, not mine.
I thought that about the white and went with blue. Difficult choice as the white looks amazing.
I'm currently torn between the SR+ and LR. LR obviously has more miles but that is what your at home charger is for. Even long drives I don't mind stopping for 20 mins. Suppose it comes down to if AWD and the little extras like live traffic is worth the extra. With servicing and fuel savings, I actually think the SR+ would be cheaper than me replacing my Golf GTD with an equivalent.
Wish I had the cash for this! Did anyone sneak a peek of the GFVs before they pulled PCP? I'm thinking a second hand P in 2 years is going to be a no brainer!
I thought the higher tax was for cars over £40k so the SR+ would be fine?
The list price will be before the Government grant (i.e. £41,550).
So, I'm a deposit holder and I've zero notification of this at all. Really terrible service/communication. Wonder if deposit holders will even get any priority on orders.
Anyway, this is a lot more than I was hoping for it to come in at so I dont think ill be ordering. They've effectively wiped out the fuel savings in the price of the car.
Could've had a Model S for the HP prices that are currently showing as well.
I've had two white cars now and fancied the change however I must admit I do like the white.
LR accepts the faster charge as well IIRC
£53,750 for the spec I want, vs $55,500. Was hoping it would be closer to £45000 to be honest and not sure I want to pay *that* much. Not that it matters but not getting any advance access or special treatment given the 3 year wait as a reservation holder doesn't feel great
So for a good spec one the hire purchase amount isn’t that much lower than the Model S?
They really need some sort of PCP scheme going too.
I've cancelled my reservation. I was expecting the base model to be a lot closer to £30k before grant. And with the higher price effectively wiping out any fuel saving over an ICE car, then there's really no case for it now.
$55,000 = £42,100 (xe.com, Tesla won’t get this rate)
Plus tariff (10%) = £4,210
Plus VAT (20%) = £8,420
Less PICG = £3,500
£53k is spot on then given there is a document and delivery fee added after the US price and some wiggle room in the exchange rate. Not sure why you expected £45k, that was never going to happen.
£40k for the SR+ is well in line with expectations too and in line with what most were posting here a few pages back.
Keep an eye on EVEZY for a monthly hire/lease with 10 days return notice after the first month. Could be a good way to experience a Tesla without the financial commitment. Assuming they can get stock of course.
