Tesla Model 3

Elon Musk and Tesla deliver the goods once again with the unveiling of the Tesla Model 3, their newest and most affordable 5-seater edition to the Tesla family. The release rounds out the Tesla cohort which now includes the Roadster, Model S, and the Model X. And in true Tesla fashion, their release is a hit. So far they received over 115,000 preorders for the vehicle, a staggering number considering each reservation requires a $1,000 deposit.

Looking like a more compact version of its Model S brethren, Tesla minimized the instrument panel and moved the front seat forward a tad to increase legroom in the rear to comfortably fit three passengers. In terms of range and acceleration for the Model 3, it’s obvious that the vehicle is in the bottom tier of the family. Even so, a fully electric vehicle with 215 miles of range and the ability to hit 60mph in less than 6 seconds is still an accomplishment. “We don’t make slow cars,” Musk commented with a smirk when asked about the Model 3. We’re with you Elon. Well done. And with a base price of $35,000, Supercharging capability, and the ability to produce 500,000 models a year, Tesla continues to set the bar high for the auto world.
