Handover party for first 30 customer Model 3's on the 28th! Production grows exponentially, so Aug should be 100 cars and Sept above 1500.

The Model 3 isn’t miles more affordable than the Model S, but certainly enough to push sales and interest up. The current and higher end Model S starts at £57,400 whereas the Model 3 will start at $35,000.
The Model 3 also has most of the main Tesla centric features, including Auto Pilot and Supercharging. The Model 3 won’t have the ludicrous mode however , which bolts the Tesla Model S P100D from 0-60 in just 2 seconds.
Instead the Model 3 will have to ‘make do’ with acceleration times of around 5.6 seconds to 60mph
