Tesla could be bringing their vision to the masses.
Just days ago, Elon Musk proudly announced that the first Tesla Model 3 came off the production line. The new Model 3 is Tesla’s first car aimed at a wider audience, at a $35,000 starting price, it certainly marks a substantial price decrease from Tesla’s luxury offering that are well over $90,000. While many had long awaited a mass production electric car that was practical and at the same time good-looking, previous attempts were mostly small, two-person cars, with weak engines, little storage, and certainly not very elegant looks. The Model 3 might just change that.
Most industry experts believe that the Model 3 will be the car that makes or breaks Tesla. Either it will become like the groundbreaking iPhone in the automobile world, or it will end in a massive flop that may destroy the company. Certainly anticipation runs very high, and there have been long talks of Tesla struggling to reach production capacity. Tesla’s previous models, the Model S and X, were stunning marvels of technology. They incorporated features that shocked the automobile market, for the first time people saw a electric car that was stylish to own. It drove at sports car speeds, boasted autopilot and auto-parking, large storage, and more importantly; good looks. However, it still remained a car for luxury car buyers and enthusiasts, but the Model 3 may just bring everything the company stands for to a mass consumer base.
