Tesla 3 to hit the road in automotive milestone

Smaller than its higher-range predecessors and with fewer options, the Model 3 still comes equipped with on-board computers that Mr Musk says prepare it for a self-driving future.

The auto is the culmination of Musk's strategy - spelled out 11 years ago in his teasingly named "Secret Tesla Motors Master Plan" - to use the proceeds from Tesla's first highly expensive vehicle models to fund development of a more affordable auto. From this information, the doc estimates your global reservation number, your place on the list as of September 2017, and then uses the information to estimate your production start date, end date, and delivery date.

But Musk says Tesla worked hard to make the Model 3 simpler and cheaper to make than Tesla's previous vehicles.

While the Tesla Model 3 fitted with the standard battery with a range of 220 miles (355km), there is a longer range for $44,000 (Rs 28.22 lakh) which can travel up to 310 miles (500km).

Just two versions are being built in this initial phase to streamline the production process as much as possible: base and Long Range. Keep in mind that the price of Tesla's Autopilot software will bump the price to above $40,000.

Tesla Model 3 is a major step for the California-based company, and will be priced around 35,000 US dollars each. I stand over six feet tall and didn't feel the least bit cramped in the 3's backseat. As expected, the Model 3 starts off at $35,000 which is quite remarkable given the vehicle's specs and driving range.

The Prime Minster, in his Facebook post , said, both leaders will also discuss major common challenges like terrorism. A journey that we are excited to undertake together for the good of our people and societies.

With over 500,000 pre-orders, customer deliveries of Tesla's mass-market Model 3 finally commence. But Tesla is saying that any Model 3 purchased now will come with the necessary hardware to enable later activation.

The vehicle's battery was created to keep it going for 220 miles (354 kilometers) before needing to be recharged, according to Tesla.

We even got to hear some candid insights from an obviously exhausted Elon Musk about its development prior to the official handover of the first 30 production cars.

Tesla's share price has surged 54 percent since January in anticipation of the Model 3 launch, and Tesla's pricey valuation now exceeds that of traditional rivals like General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co. There will initially be two variants for the Model 3: Standard and Long Range.

This feature might strike some as unusual or maybe even a little unnerving, but it really strikes me as more of a convenience.

If Tesla can successfully produce and sell that many cars a year, it will outperform BMW, Mercedes, and Lexus in the US. Rather than ease expectations, Musk doubled down on moving up his target for producing 400,000 Model 3 cars from 2020 to 2018. The Model 3 will be built with 10,000 unique parts, and its production rate will be dependent on both a global network of components suppliers and Tesla's own battery gigafactory keeping up the pace. That will cost you an extra $5,000. The stage was set, on the black floor with red curtains and a grey background with a white Tesla logo there was Elon Musk standing and welcoming the crowd, media and Tesla employees as his ambitious project turned reality.
