The Tesla Model 3 has been in the limelight for all the good reasons. Being the cheapest Tesla on-sale worldwide, it garned a huge amount of bookings worldwide when the company opened-it.
The Model 3 is expected to launch at the end of this year, with deliveries starting early next-year. However, a production ready model has been spotted sometime ago, which was photographed just outside the company’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
Sources suggest that the Model 3 spotted is the test mule of the original car, which is yet to be launched. The car is similar looking to the production-spec Model 3 unveiled last-year, with minor tweaks in the front to keep it fresh. Also note the presence of a BMW F30 3 Series, possibly driving together with the Model 3 for bench-marking purposes.
Unlike the instrument cluster in other Tesla models, the Model 3 will have a simple and only centrally mounted display – displaying all vehicular information – and infotainment system on a large. In the latest reply to his fans, Musk has Tweeted that: “The more autonomous a car is, the less dash info you need. How often do you look at the instrument panel when being driven in a taxi?”
The Model 3 will come in single-motor RWD and dual-motor AWD versions, as with its bigger brother, the Model S. The baby Tesla sedan’s base model will offer a range of at least 215 miles (346 km), Musk had confirmed.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla reported that the car will be launched at a starting price of US dollar 35,000 and the company has already received over 4 lakh bookings for the car worldwide. And the production is expected to start in July-2017, but its deliveries are not expected to commence anytime before 2018.
However, neither its official launch timeline or pricing is available yet!
