The Car

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,[30] and also listed as the top-selling plug-in passenger car in the U.S.[31][32] and California.[33] 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.[34]

Here’s a look at the Monthly Plug-In EV Sales Scorecard as the Tesla Model 3 continues to do things an electric vehicle has never done before.

LEGO isn’t going to make this toy car on its’ own, just like the automotive industry wasn’t going to make the Model 3. It’s going to take 10,000 supporters to say we want things to accelerate.

Obviously, I’m a really happy Model 3 owner. If you do decide to purchase a new Tesla, I’d really appreciate it if you used my referral code. You’ll get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging:
