The Tesla Model 3 production, release, and other updates. Tesla vehicles are not really consumer-friendly vehicles the likes of Toyota models. So when the Model 3 was first unveiled as a concept car back in March 2016, it was warmly welcomed and got everyone excitedly waiting for it to hit production all thanks to the opportunity to own a Tesla car at a greatly reduced price. The Model 3 was so appealing that it was able to get more or less 400,000 pre-orders after it was revealed.

There isn't much known about the Model 3. The luxury electric vehicle manufacturer has only been giving teasers of what the public can and should expect.

To date, the only known details about the upcoming electric vehicle include its price tag of around US$35,000. Despite going through a few financial and production setbacks, it should be noted that Tesla will maintain that price tag when the Model 3 is released.
