What we know about Tesla's new Model 3 sedan

Appears to be a few Model 3 in the area

The long-range battery pack is priced at $9,000 and will better those numbers, however: opting for this will see the range grow to 310 miles, the 0-60mph time shrink to 5.1 seconds and the Supercharger charge rate increase to 170 miles for every 30 minutes charged. Dual-motor versions will come later, but Tesla is starting out simple in order to ease into production.

We are working hard to deliver Model 3 to reservation holders as soon as possible and will give you frequent updates on our progress to build and deliver your auto. But Musk was more specific on Friday night, when the company made its first deliveries of the new auto.

Tesla expects the Model 3 to achieve a high crash rating, with six airbags up front and two curtain airbags to keep occupants safe.

That could be a stretch for some buyers, especially since there are limits on the $7,500 USA tax credit for electric cars.

Rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive versions would eventually be offered side-by-side, with a performance-oriented variant in the product plan, but more concrete details weren't forthcoming.

Some of the executives responsible for the Model 3 have been there from the beginning, leading Tesla from a tiny upstart to an icon of automotive desire. Helping it become a more profitable mainstream company.

Social media posts claiming the South Florida-based company was going out of business started spreading like wildfire Thursday. With her wedding in 100 days, Busboom said this unforeseen snag won't get her down. "I'm not anxious about it", he said.

The more affordable Tesla Model 3 has rolled off the assembly line Friday evening.

SIZE: The Model 3 is 184.8 inches (15.3 ft./4.3 meters) long and 72.8 inches (6 ft./1.8 meters) wide, which is similar in size to a BMW 3 Series.

The clean and minimalistic design, Holzhausen added, enables the driver to concentrate on driving - or being driven, as the Model 3's hardware and software are engineered to deliver full autonomy. A $5,000 premium options package includes an all-glass roof, open-pore wood decor, premium sound, heated seats, and premium seat materials.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Zero-to-60 time is 5.6 seconds. Whatever you have to do to afford the Autopilot option, make it happen, it is absolutely worth the price of admission. But this initial experience left us thinking that Tesla just may have pulled it off - if it can build as many as it says it can and meet the quality expectations of mainstream auto buyers. The Standard Battery configuration will be available very soon thereafter.

The first UK Model 3s are expected to be delivered in late 2017 or early 2018, with production confirmed to have started in July 2017. "A troubled Model 3 launch could heighten the risks for the company, while a steady delivery of Model 3s could generate a stream of cash that would allow Tesla to avoid going again to the capital markets to fund its operations".

Great Britain followed France in announcing that it would ban the sale of new cars fueled by gasoline or diesel fuel by 2040.

In several Twitter posts earlier this month, Musk said the California-based company will produce 100 cars in August and more than 1,500 in September.
