Tesla on Thursday introduced a new $45،000 version of its Model 3 sedan on its website، launching the car as U.S. tax breaks for Tesla cars are about to decrease، as the Daily Mail said.

According to the website، the rear-wheel-drive model has a 'mid range' battery، a range of 260 miles، 50 miles less than the long-range battery that the more expensive Model 3 is equipped with.

The new version has a delivery period of six to 10 weeks، according to the website، which would customers eligible for the current $7،500 U.S. tax credit if they take delivery by the end of the year.

'Costs $35k after federal & state tax rebates in California، but true cost of ownership is closer to $31k after gas savings،' Musk tweeted.
The tax credit for Tesla cars will drop by half on Jan. 1.

Although Tesla has promised a base-level version of the Model 3 priced at $35،000، so far it has only produced higher-cost versions starting at about $49،000.

Tesla has said that it would not manufacture the base-level version of the Model 3 this year.

Adding the mid-priced version of the Model 3 appears to be a strategic way to lure possible buyers who had been waiting for the lower-priced version.

It is not clear how many of the more than 400،000 reservations for the Model 3 are for the base models.
