Mar 22, 2017 07:30 AM EDT | Ileen Jasmine

The Tesla Model 3 is one of the most anticipated electric vehicles to date. It's no surprise that people are already lining up to see the options the vehicle offers.

Recently, Ben Sullins from the YouTube channel called "Teslanomics" shared a new and interesting data visualization tool about Tesla. The tool was about the most likely options on the Tesla Model 3.

Fans of the YouTube channel might remember that it is the same one who sensationalized the new travel tool for Supercharger costs and other Tesla-related videos. So, what is the most popular option for the Model 3?

Yep, it's the Autopilot feature. The fact that the Autopilot is the most popular option among reservation holders is no surprise.

Coming in second is the battery upgrade over the base "more than 215 miles" option. This is the second most popular option amongst reservation holders in the United States.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has previously confirmed the company's plans to offer more than one option for the battery packs. However, his confirmation did not include the price for the options.

The lack of information from Tesla is the reason why Sullins' data visualization tool is very much interesting. With it, fans can see what thousands of Model 3 reservation holders are thinking of when it comes to their options for their vehicle.

According to Electrek, Sullins got the data from almost 4,000 Tesla Model 3 reservation holders in the United States. He surveyed at the website Model3Tracker.info to create his new tool.

Interestingly enough, 87% of the reservation holders who participated in the survey revealed that they wanted to add at least one option. As previously mentioned, the most popular option is Tesla's Autopilot.

Tesla has already announced that the option will be powered by its second generation hardware suite which will at some point enable fully self-driving capability. On the other hand, 67% of the respondents revealed that they wanted the Autopilot feature.

As of today, the feature is available on the Tesla Model S and X with two options. First, the Enhanced Autopilot pricing in at $5,000 and the Fully Self-driving Capability for $3,000 on top of the $5,000.

The price, however, could potentially be a bit cheaper for the Tesla Model 3. Check out Sullins' video below and let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
