Reports have emerged suggesting that Tesla has halted the sale of the $35,000 Model 3 Standard Range, an off-menu variant of its midsize sedan.

The 220-mile Model 3 has become reportedly unavailable for new orders as the electric car maker focuses on ramping the production and deliveries of the 2021 Model 3, which includes “refresh” elements such as a new center console and new headlights. 

Citing sources familiar with the update, EV blog Electrek noted that Tesla staff have been informed that they were no longer allowed to “downgrade” new orders for the Model 3 Standard Range Plus to the $35,000 Standard Range version, at least for now. Tesla employees will still be able to sell software-limited Model 3 Standard Range Plus units, but only for inventory vehicles that were produced prior to the rollout of the “refresh” cars.
