The Tesla Model 3 is the most-bought electric car in Europe. Its rich possibilities attract more and more drivers, but Poland will rather be an exception. Unfortunately, Elon Musk exceeded the unacceptable limit. As a result, many people will no longer be able to receive a subsidy from the “My Electrician” program for the sought-after version.
Drivers in Europe praise the Tesla Model 3 very much, incl. for its multimedia and autonomous capabilities. The magnet is also modern battery technology and the possibility of quick charging. For this reason, the Long Range version was an increasingly popular variant. On aero wheels and with an enlarged battery, it officially has a range of 638 km (WLTP units). However, something happened this week that could seriously affect Tesla sales in Poland.
Elon Musk appreciates himself
All because Tesla Model 3 Long Range was excluded from the Polish subsidy program “My Electrician”. Elon Musk raised prices a few days ago, so his popular car is no longer caught in the limits of some funding options. It is a popular purchase for a company with 50 percent. VAT deduction (private and business use). The additional payment is granted for purchases in this option, when the net amount does not exceed PLN 201 793 (PLN 248 206 gross).
It just so happens that the price of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range has increased by 5,000 since recently. zloty. Exactly from PLN 244,990 gross to PLN 249,990. The limit was exceeded only (with these budgets it is probably the right word) by 1784 zlotys, which ruins the plans of many Poles. With such a small difference, can you apply for a discount? You can, but since the Hertz rental company did not get it (declaration of ordering 100,000 Tesla copies), you can answer it yourself. The increases are probably the aftermath of rising inflation and the weakening of the Polish zloty against the dollar.
Of course, the Tesla Model 3 Long Range is still caught in the limit for entrepreneurs (PLN 225,000 net / PLN 276,750 gross) who will only use the car for business purposes. More and more detailed inspections in Poland mean that an attempt to bend the regulations in this regard may result in a severe penalty. It is worth remembering that the maximum surcharge of 27 thousand. PLN is possible with the declaration of mileage over 30 thousand. km in 2 years. In the case of mileage up to 15 thousand. km during the year, the subsidy amounts to PLN 18,750.
What Tesla can be surcharged?
In this situation, individuals and entrepreneurs intending to use the company’s Tesla also privately can only buy the cheapest Model 3 with rear-wheel drive. The version formerly called Standard Range + (new range up to 510 km WLTP) also increased in price and now costs PLN 219,990 gross. It is also the slowest of the Tesla, accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds. For comparison, the Long Range version does it in 4.4 seconds. The Model 3 Performance, on the other hand, such a sprint takes only 3.3 seconds (547 km of range). With a gross price of PLN 269,990, you are still caught in “My Electrician”, but only 100 percent. for official use.
