Tesla Announces Milestone Achievement: Model 3 for $35,000

Model 3 is a smaller, simpler and a more affordable electric car. Designed and built as the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, it is a critical step in Tesla’s mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

Like every Tesla vehicle, Model 3 combines range, performance, safety and technology. Intelligent design maximizes interior space to comfortably fit five adults and all of their gear. The high-efficiency powertrain provides zero to 60 mph acceleration in as little as 3.2 seconds.

Model 3 is designed to achieve the highest safety ratings in every category. With 220 to 325 miles of range and a starting price of $35,000 before gas savings and incentives, Model 3 is Tesla’s most affordable vehicle yet.

Model 3 deliveries began on July 28, 2017 at the Tesla Factory in Fremont, CA. It is currently available for purchase on Tesla.com in a number of different configurations, including Standard Range, Mid Range, and Long Range battery options. Certain variants are available with Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive for superior performance and traction in any weather, and Model 3 Performance is also available for best-in-class acceleration.
