Tesla Model 3 Delivery Started, 30 Telsa Employees First To Get Hands On
Tesla has begun the delivery of the much-awaited Model 3 cars on July 28, 2017. An initial batch of the Telsa Model 3 cars that rolled out of the Tesla plant in Fremont, California late Friday was given to the 30 lucky employees of the company itself.
Tesla Model 3 deliveries have started by giving keys to the lucky Telsa employers on the promised date that is July 28, 2017, as reported by Reuters. The use of term "keys" is because Model 3 owners will enter and start their cars with smartphones or NFC cards. Telsa Model 3 owners don't get cool, car-shaped control fobs like those which used the earlier Models S and X, instead it will have normal design than both previous models.
Musk has revealed updated reservation numbers for the Telsa's first mass market car. Tesla is holding more than 500,000 reservations with refundable $1,000 deposits. However, the previous public number was 373,000 reservations. Musk has mentioned that new buyers will not take delivery of their cars until the end of next year.
Production of the Telsa Model 3 is aimed at the broader market - with a starting price of $35,000 - will ramp up quickly. Tesla is reportedly aiming to produce 5,000 units of the Model 3 a week this year, and 10,000 units a week in 2018, NDTV reported.
Telsa is reportedly becoming the Apple of the auto market. Tesla already sold S and X model electric cars, with a starting price of $80,000. The Telsa Model 3 silhouette looks mostly like the Model S, but the new electric ride is smaller with a simpler design.
However, right now, the important thing is that Tesla Model 3 deliveries have already started and all focus is shifted on how quickly production of Model 3 car ramps up. Telsa is reportedly becoming the Apple of the auto market.
