Tesla Model 3

The Verge reports: [edited]

At the unveiling of the Model 3, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the car will deliver at least 215 miles of range, and have a starting price of just $35,000.

The base car will do 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds. All Model 3 cars will include support for Tesla's high-speed Supercharging network. By the end of 2017, when the Model 3 launches, Tesla says it will have a total of 7,200 Superchargers, double the number available today.

Autopilot hardware is standard, and all safety features will be active automatically. Five adults will fit comfortably.

The front to rear roof area — from the windshield all the way to the trunk [boot, Ed.] will be one continuous piece of glass. And, just like the Model S, it will have front and rear trunks for storage.

The Model 3 isn't expected to begin production until late 2017, more than 18 months from now. Tesla will happily take your preorder for a modest $1,000 down payment. Tesla plans to more than double the size of its dealership and service network by the end of next year, to sell and take care of all these new cars.
