Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk introduced the electric car-maker’s Model 3 on Thursday evening. The electric sedan starts at $35,000 and goes into production in 2017.
The all-electric Tesla Model 3 will have a range of at least 215 miles (350 km) and will be at least able to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 100 km/h) in less than six seconds, with first deliveries not expected to begin in the U.S. until the late 2017, and full production might not meet demand until 2020, according to CEO Elon Musk.
The introduction of the Tesla Model 3 seemed a little like an Apple intro event with cheering of features announcements. Over 100,000 people had reserved the Model 3 prior to the unveiling event. Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk announced Friday April 1, 2016 that “pre-orders” for the Model 3 electric car had hit 198,000.
It is a little hard to believe, but the vehicle has no gauges, and instead will have a 15-inch flat panel display monitor. Critics claim that the cars won’t run on fossil fuels, but it still takes a polluting energy source to provide the power centers to charge the cars.
