The Tesla Model 3 will be the next big Tesla car to be released. Reservations for this vehicle have been open for some time now and the production has already started rolling out. People in the US are already receiving their cars. But what exactly is a Tesla Model 3 and where does it fit in the companies as well as the industries lineup.
Tesla Model 3 – This Car is Going to be Big!
The Tesla Model 3 is Elon Musk’s goal product. Musk wanted to create a reasonably priced electric car from the start. But the way he went about getting to this point was simple. He manufactured a high-end sports car (with most of the design outsourced from Lotus) which he sold to the public. Then he took the earnings from that and developed the very successful Model S. Now, after using up the earnings of the Model S in development, we no have the Model 3.
It is a good looking car with a clear distinction between the Tesla brand and design. The same goes for the interior which has that crazy big 15 screen on the dash. Performance is not as good as the Model S, but it might give a few Hot Hatches a run for their money.
The pricing is very competitive at $35000 for a base model. But what the base model lacks is some key features like range extender and the autopilot will cost you an extra $9000 and $5000. After adding these options, the car will now go into Luxury car class.
