Tesla finally launches the long-promised model 3 with a base price of $ 35,000, according to the "secret master plan" published by Elon Musk in 2006.

- Customers can now order Model 3 at $ 35,000 with a standard interior and standard battery pack for a top speed of 130 km / h and acceleration from 0 to 60 seconds at 5.6 seconds.
- Tesla also manufactures a new 'premium partial interior' offering better seats than the standard cockpit, with a different 'standard range plus' battery for a premium of $ 2,000.
- The Model 3 Standard Range Plus offers a range of 240 km, a top speed of 140 mph and a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of only 5.3 seconds.
