Opting for the Standard Range Model 3 via software limitation also disables various features including the onboard music streaming service navigation with live traffic, and heated seats.

The shift was needed to "simplify our production operations to better optimize cost, minimize complexity and streamline operations", the company added.

The model will be equipped with Tesla's Autopilot assisted driving function, the automaker said.

Turning our attention to the biggest news in regard to the Model 3, the electric sedan is available for lease in the U.S.

In responding a follower on Twitter encouraged Tesla owners to buy a product that covers up a camera over the rear-view mirror of their cars, Musk, 47, confirmed for the first time that the goal of the camera was to record video when owners put their vehicle on the network.

As for the $35,000 Model 3.

As of Thursday noon, the airline had just 14 planes-way down from 123 planes in operations till a few months back. Sources said lenders are expecting EoIs from global airlines like Air Canada and Delta Airlines.

In today's announcement Elon Musk;s ambitious company say customers are now able to 'lease Model 3 for a small down payment and competitive monthly payments.' Leasing customers can select an annual mileage option of 10,000, 12,000, or 15,000 miles. Leasing isn't available as an option for the Model Y on Tesla's site, likely because the crossover is so new and not actually on sale yet.

After the federal tax credit available on its cars halved January 1, Tesla has dropped prices, added features, streamlined its model lineup, and introduced new lower-priced options for the Model 3, including the long-promised $35,000 base Model 3 Standard Range.

Finally, leasing has come to the Model 3.

In addition to the Model 3 trim changes, the company said Autopilot is now standard on every auto it sells.

The rear-wheel-drive Long Range Model 3 has also been removed from the website and joins the Standard Range Model 3 as an off-menu model that must be ordered in-store or on the phone. Most vehicle leases give you the option to buy the auto outright at the end of the lease period, but not Tesla. Customers won't have the option to buy the auto at the end of the lease because the company plans to use the vehicles in a forthcoming Tesla ride-hailing network, according to the blog post. A Standard Range Plus Model 3 without any options nets a $504 per month payment for 36 months, 10,000 miles, and $3,000 down.
