    At this moment, Tesla is only producing long-range Model 3's with premium interiors. So, until "first production" stops, there will not be any standard interiors. But, we expect a black trim instead of the open pore wood decor and textile seating (cloth). In addition to that, the roof will be metal over the driver and front passenger's heads. Manual seats will be six-way adjustable.

    I assume the standard interior will be similar to the lowest level Model S interior. I guess the question I should have posed is what is the bottom level Model S interior like?
    I really only need the long range battery and the only way to get that early is getting the premium interior package.
    $49,000 is really more than I can spend. I've already been told selling one of the kids is out of the question.

    It used to be Parents could supplement child rearing expenses by renting out their kids for the Summer at Grandma & Granddad's house as cheap labor to tend the barn and garden.

    Two things I would not want from the basic interior would be cloth seats and no console. I have never seen a Tesla with the cloth seats, so I'm not sure what they are like. Early model S's had that "yacht floor" instead of today's console. I'm guessing the 3's seat coverings will be the same as the cloth in today's models and it will have something close to that yacht floor.

    Fwiw, I would expect 3rd party console solutions for the yacht floor, as there were with the model S and you can get a pretty nice set of close-to-OEM-fitment leather or vegan leather seat covers installed for around a grand.

    I think instead it will have similar bins as the premium, but without cover/lids.

    I think you're right. Looks like I missed this from the model 3 features page at Tesla.com:
    • "Center console with open storage and two USB ports"

    Do we know anything more about when Tesla intends to offer standard interior? With no sign of the 35k base version, what are the chances we get to pick non-premium interior anytime soon ?

    Okay the Premium interior offers a few extra features so it does offer value but anyone else out there who is not keen on wood trim or would much rather put money towards either AWD or LR rather than premium interior ?

    Best guess is that it will be offered at the same time as the standard range car. I believe the latest estimate from Tesla is that delivery of those cars will begin in December.

    I agree with this -- they'll get major flack if they introduce standard battery and it's a $40k car and not a $35k car.
