First Tesla Model 3 to be Completed by Friday

First Tesla Model 3 to be Completed by Friday

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been guiding "less than 6 seconds" for the Model 3's 0 to 60 miles per hour, but that's only for the base version of the auto.

"Expecting to complete SN1 on Friday", Musk added.

"Our Model 3 program is on track to start limited vehicle production in July and to steadily ramp production to exceed 5,000 vehicles per week at some point in the fourth quarter and 10,000 vehicles per week at some point in 2018."
Tesla Model 3 production is two weeks ahead of schedule and the first Model 3 vehicle is expected to roll off the production line this Friday, July 7.

The auto, which already has over 400,000 pre-orders, is Tesla's cheapest vehicle to date - starting at $35,000. In August the production of Model 3 cars should be 100 cars and in September Tesla puts out more than 1,500. Musk also noted that Model 3 passed all regulatory requirements, a precursor to official production.

Tesla has not yet released a Model 3 configurator.

It would mean that the highly anticipated vehicle is on time since Tesla had been guiding a start of production in July since a year ago when it updated its production plans after receiving a lot more reservations than anticipated.

As for longer term production, in December Elon Musk sees 20,000 being built.
