Its autonomy will be around 400 km. It will accelerate from 0 to 100 in less than 6 seconds and its approximate price is $35.000. It has capacity for up to 5 passengers featuring panoramic glass roof, two different car boots and has an automatic driverless system. This “low cost”, ecologically sustainable car, it is a reality. Its presentation has become a genuine mass phenomenon only comparable to the mythical presentation of the first iPhone.
And many see in Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and the natural heir to the aura of technological guru who had the late Steve Jobs. Another reasonable similarity to the Cupertino genius career are the great business numbers after the launching of Tesla Model 3 last April. Half an hour before its presentation to the world and without having much information about the model and its advantages, 115.000 people had made its reservation in the US where the expectation for this vehicle was high. In order to make a reservation, you will have had to pay in advance $1,000, so please calculate the profit. However, this is not the end of the issue as the end of the presentation reservations amounted to 137.600 units. Therefore, if we multiply by the car’s value within the market we could say that Tesla has guaranteed almost unaware of it nearly 4,000 million dollars.
According to the twitter account of Musk; the number of orders today has already surpassed 325,000 units. So if nobody draws back, the brand will receive around 14,000 million dollars (12,310 million Euros) in a single go with the first generation of this vehicle. The key for these numbers to become a reality, it will be the Telsa production capacity, which is initially estimated at 500,000 cars per year. According to the latest leaks of information, the making of Model 3 will not begin until 2017, reaching Europe only a year later at a price that will be around 31,000 Euros. This is a very affordable price when compared to 120,000 cost of the Tesla Model X, the largest gem 100% electric of the brand up to now or to 70,000 of the Model S.
The new Tesla wit will end with the tyranny of the plug and promises at least 400 km of autonomy on a single charge. Figures that the brand engineers promise overcome shortly. All Model 3 will have the possibility to use the lines of high-speed chargers. Tesla hopes to expand worldwide with over 15,000 charching points for when the car is rolling in the streets. It will be special connectors with which the battery will be charged within minutes. You can find them in the US in places such as shopping centres, near popular restaurants and public Wi-Fi access.
Therefore, the trade battle with other electric cars as the BMW i3, the Nissan Leaf y and Chevrolet Bolt has already begun. Tesla’s bet has made a strong impression and promises to surround much of the electric automotive emerging market and also the desire for a large number of consumers to have a machine that is in perfect harmony with nature.
