  1. Mark says he’d order a Model 3 with standard battery, premium interior, and Autopilot. The only difference between this configuration and the long range model is the battery, a $9000 upgrade with a $7500 tax rebate. That just a $1500 difference, only a little more than the cost of an upgraded paint job. It seems a no-brainer to go for the extra range. It comes in handy if you ever want to take a long trip, and it increases its resale value by more than $1500.

    Maybe he could get the standard battery in the first half of next year and collect the $3750 tax rebate, but that’s uncertain at best.
