After many months of anticipation and advertising campaigns, Tesla finally started mass production of its new edition of electric cars – Model 3. The news was announced by the company’s CEO Elon Musk on its Twitter page. The first car, intended for sale, came off the factory assembly line this weekend. Now the car passes standard pre-sale preparation and testing.
The first production car, as it was with other models of Tesla electric cars, will traditionally go Musk himself. By the end of July 2017, the company will be able to make thirty more cars. The amount is small but volumes will get bigger by the end of the year. Once production takes adequate pace, the first pre-order will be accepted. According to Musk, it won’t happen until 2018 – that’s when all customers will finally have their Tesla Model 3.
Model 3 promises to be the first mass scale electric car of the company because the previous Tesla cars were rather expensive and not everyone could afford them. This electric vehicle will have distance range of 350km from a single charge. Plus, it accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in less than 6 seconds.
