Elon Musk has just confirmed that the first deliveries of the Model 3 will begin in July. It was previously reported that Tesla plans to reveal the final production version of the Model 3 in July, with deliveries to kick off sometime during the summer. Interestingly, last week a photo of an alleged Model 3 with a wooden trim interior made rounds on the internet, a design option which Tesla has still yet to confirm, particularly its availability to interested Model 3 owners.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the Model 3 will be simpler and will be offering fewer technology features compared to the Model S. This is confirmed by the recently released comparison chart, which also offers more details about the upcoming Model 3. It appears that the Model 3 will only come with a sole 15-inch touchscreen display, rather than the 17-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen and as well as separate digital gauge cluster used in the Model S.
However, Elon Musk has revealed on Twitter that the first customers should receive their Model 3 in July. Musk has also faced some criticisms recently in regards to delivery schedules, and so it seems that Tesla's CEO has already decided to speed things up and release the production of the Model 3. Moreover, Musk has also unveiled that the day-1 reservation holders will get "something cool, " However, Musk did not specify exactly what he has in mind.
The company launched the prototype version of the $35,000 electric car in 2016, and though it didn't show the final design of the car, Tesla received more than 400,000 reservations in just a couple of months. Furthermore, Tesla anticipates the Model 3 will come and deliver an all-electric range of at least 215 miles (346 km), with base model pricing in the US market which costs at $35,000 before any applicable government incentives.
