Tesla Model 3 Mid Range RWD is discontinued

17 March 2019, 06:50:42

Tesla Model 3 Mid Range RWD is discontinuedModel 3 Mid Range RWD is one of the very short-lived trims of Tesla cars as it has been launched in October 2018 and has been discontinued as of today, March 17, 2019. The reasons could be many and the most logical one seems that the company does not need such a car in its lineup with the Model 3 Standard Range and Standard Range Plus now in place and with the Model Y also available for pre-order.
