Wall Street investment bank analysts did a careful tear down of the Model 3 to be impressed by many of its features and design. But by their calculations, if Tesla goes through with their plans to sell the car in the cheapest variant, they’ll lose several thousand dollars off the profit margin of the car:
- -The tear down was a comparison with other electric legacy BEVs.
- -The technology described as “next gen military grade” nothing close to anything else in the industry.
- -Features and technology of the present car will make a base variant very difficult to sell at a profit with about a $6,000 deficit per each unit, their estimate, says UBS.
- -But days after the report release it’s becoming outdated from Tesla announcement about new battery pack.
Praise: “Best Powertrain, Lowest Cost”
