I have what I don't think is a truly uncommon situation. The standard range Model 3 is plenty of range for 97-98% of my planned use. I do take one (sometimes two) long distance trips a year (about 750-800 miles each way). I've gone through the analysis, and in my opinion, 250 miles of range is the bare minimum needed for long distance travel. 280 is around the sweet spot. 310? Maybe a bit overkill (was really hoping for $42K 280 mile large battery). Anyway, I'm pretty much prepared to go with the long range for that one trip a year (my hope is to dump gas completely with the Model 3--we currently use a Volt for that trip). Now there are good arguments for not lugging around and paying for a huge battery that you only use once a year. But we've tried the dealer loaner path with our second LEAF, and well, it's kind of inconvenient and limiting, not to mention the fact that we ended up using gas for the whole trip and using up our precious limited # of loaner days while the car sat parked at our vacation spot for a week. It got me to thinking: would Tesla ever consider running a loaner program--even at a cost. I.e. I could buy the standard range car, and for my annual trip I trade it for a loaner long range car. And for a cost I could even trade "up" for features like a Model S (or X) and autopilot and "free" Supercharging. Yeah I know intuitively it may seem that Tesla would prefer to get my $9K up front for the larger battery. But on the other hand, as it is, I probably won't be buying the premium package because of the large premium on the large battery, and they may be able to make more money on selling me premium features than a larger battery. And they could definitely turn their loaner fleet into a revenue producing operation. I mean isn't this ultimately the direction they want to head anyway with their self-driving fleet?
