“The $35,000 Tesla Model 3 is finally here. It is sleek, quick as hell, and meant for the masses,” reports Wired.
The story quotes Tesla CEO Elon Musk saying during the introduction of the car on Thursday night, March 31, “It’s very important to accelerate the transition to sustainable transport. This is really important for the future of the world.”
The article notes, “Tesla has a proven ability to get people excited, and there’s no denying the company has a cachet many automakers do not. You don’t often see people lining up outside dealerships simply to place a $1,000 deposit on a car they haven’t even seen—something that happened at many Tesla stores this week. By the time Musk pulled the sheet off the color Model 3 at the sprawling Space X campus here in Hawthorne, California, 115,000 customers had put their money down.”
