What became known during the presentation and after it? For example, after the publication of a series of photos salon Tesla Model 3, some web users made known dissatisfaction - they say, is too standard. Musk said that this is not the final version of the interior. The company intends to change the appearance of vehicles, making it a futuristic, and in general, electric vehicle management system will be more like an analogue of the space ship (presumably, the production of Space X). The rest - under the cut.

It is also known that the electric vehicle will be equipped with top-end security systems. In addition, Model 3 would maintain the standard Supercharge fast charging, this even applies to the basic version.

All versions of the "troika" will be equipped with an autopilot (with some, especially advanced, autopilot functions will need to re-buy). The minimum cruising range electric vehicle - 350 kilometers


All this will change

Nevertheless, 276,000 pre-orders Tesla mean additional funds in the amount of $ 276 million. They can not be used freely, but some goals regulators allowed to spend the funds.

The base model - rear wheel drive, with the option of installing a second motor, and the transition to all-wheel drive. The cost of the transition will be less than $ 5,000 according to the mask.
