"The smaller Tesla is here and looks like as if Model X and Model S had a baby. With features like Autopilot, and 215 mile all-electric range, Model 3 brings most of the Tesla's innovations to the small luxury sedan segment. Tesla Model 3 starts from $35,000, seats five, and reaches 60 mph in under six seconds. The car will go on sale in 2017 as a 2018 model." Ed.
Model 3 is the next logical step of Tesla's "secret master plan" and mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
Like every Tesla, Model 3 is engineered to combine range, performance, safety and utility. Smart design maximizes interior space, to comfortably fit 5 adults and all of their gear. Tesla makes fast cars, Model 3 is no exception. The high efficiency electric motor provides zero to 60 mph acceleration in less than six seconds. And when equipped with electric all-wheel drive, Model 3 provides safe and dependable traction in all conditions.
Designed with safety as a priority, Model 3 should be the safest car in its class once testing completes. This, combined with over 200 miles of range while starting at $35,000 before incentives, makes Model 3 an extraordinary mid-size sedan.
Model 3 will begin production in late 2017, ramping Tesla vehicle production to 500,000 vehicles per year.
