But, my point is that a 100mi range car, that I can temporarily upgrade to 2-300mi range, is a FAR better value than a 100mi range car that has no such option (if they're about the same price). In fact, I wouldn't even consider a strictly short range vehicle over a gas car, if I only had the budget for 1 car. In addition, Tesla will probably continue to have the best charging network for these vehicles. I'm not saying that all Gen3 would be medium range, I think they've stated 200mi range for the launch edition, I'm just saying, that I wouldn't be surprised if an even cheaper Gen3 option with a smaller battery became available in the future. Who knows, maybe a few generations of batteries later, and the battery swap will be able to give a Model S a temporary 400mi range (with a taller battery, maybe).
