According to the latest reports, Tesla will definitely launch the Model 3 by the end of 2017. There has been much speculation lately about possible production delays when it comes to Tesla’s fourth model. However, the most recent reports reveal that the pre-production model will be out in the next couple of weeks. This small four-door electric sedan will be the company’s most important car yet. With its price tag of $35,000, the Model 3 will allow Tesla to become a mainstream carmaker. Initial production is slated for July, with the first deliveries expected in late 2017. In any case, the much-anticipated 2018 Tesla Model 3 will be a game changer for the American automaker.
2018 Tesla Model 3 Design
Design-wise, the Model 3 looks like a downsized version of the more expensive Model S. What makes it unique is the fact that it has no grille, apart from a small scoop on the bumper. However, rumor has it that the 2018 Tesla Model 3 could receive a number of styling tweaks. It’s no secret that the prototype has received lots of criticism for its front end’s somewhat unfinished look. So, expect the production-ready model to come with certain alterations, although exact details are still unknown. Just like other Teslas, the Model 3 will have two trunks, front and rear.
When it comes to interior, the 2018 Tesla Model 3 will feature an incredibly simple design. A large, horizontally positioned touchscreen will dominate its cabin. In fact, the 15-inch screen will replace all instrumentation, even the dashboard in the conventional sense. Expect also the cabin space to benefit from a large sunroof over the front seats. Rear passengers will have more than generous headroom and legroom at their disposal. Of course, more details on the Model 3’s interior should surface in the weeks ahead.
Tesla Model 3 Specs
Full details concerning the upcoming model’s drivetrain have yet to come. However, the 2018 Tesla Model 3 is likely to use a 70-kWh battery pack and an all-electric powertrain. According to some reports, it should be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than six seconds. We expect it to offer a minimum rang of 215 miles.Unfortunately, it seems that the Model 3 won’t benefit from the free unlimited access to Tesla’s Supercharger network.
Production of the 2018 Tesla Model 3 will be a huge test for this expanding company. Namely, the company CEO Elon Musk has set an ambitious goal of producing up to 500,000 cars per year.The only way for Tesla to achieve these numbers is to use the new Nevada Giga factory to its full capacity. In any case, we expect the Model 3 to have a huge impact on the automotive industry.
