The Tesla Model 3 is a car from the future and the automobile Elon Musk hyped would bring electric vehicles to the masses. Here’s a quick look at the history of this car.
In March 2016, Tesla announced the Model 3. Within a week of unveiling the Model 3, Tesla said they had taken 325,000 reservations for the car.
In July 2017, the first production vehicles were delivered. The car received a perfect 5-star safety rating and the lowest probability of injury of any car ever tested by the U.S. Government.
In February 2019, the long promised $35,000 Model 3 was made available. The $35,000 Model 3 has 220 miles of range, a 130 mph top speed, and a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.6 seconds.
What the car has accomplished is incredible. From Wikipedia: “The Model 3 topped global sales of plug-in electric cars in 2018, and also listed as the top-selling plug-in passenger car in the U.S. and California. In February 2019, the Model 3 passed the Chevrolet Volt to become the all-time best-selling plug-in electric car in the U.S.“
