Really?  How?  

AFAIK VW haven't announced a dollar price, or even whether they'll offer the 
ID here, but if you translate 29.9k Eur directly to US$ it would be US$33.6k 
at today's exchange rate.  (The dollar figures in Bruce's article are AU$.)  
I thought the cheapest Tesla 3 was US$35k.  

No?  Cheaper?  Less than US$33.6k?

Also, the VW is a hatchback-almost-crossover, and the Tesla is a sedan, so 
VW wins big on utility.  That will probably matter in Europe, where hatch 
utility is still generally taken for granted, and possibly also in the SUV-
and-crossover-addled US.

As for range, if I'm not mistaken, Tesla rates the base 3 for a range of 
350km (220mi) ?cycle?, VW at 330km WLTP, Renault at 400km WLTP.  I don't 
know how Tesla's km rating compares to the lunatic WLTP rating.
