There is a Russian proverb, which says: you have to wait 3 years to get what you’ve been promised. And it fits the situation perfectly, since the Model 3 of Tesla was announced back in 2016 and comes out only now, in 2019.
It all started back on Wednesday, when Elon Musk published another mysterious tweet, which really excited the community and even made the stock price of Tesla go up (which is a good thing for the company after the nasty scandal with SEC).
Some Tesla news

One day later, Model 3 finally became available to the public.
Tesla has actually released two vehicles:
- The standard Model 3. Its charge will be enough for 220 miles, the maximum speed is 130 miles per hour. The car accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in the course of 5.6 seconds;
- Model 3 Standard Range Plus. Its charge will be enough for 240 miles, it will speed up to up to 140 miles per hours. The acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hours will take only 5.3 seconds.
The prices for these two “affordable” Tesla vehicles are 35 and 37 thousand dollars correspondingly. However, this is only the starting price.
If you want your Model 3 in the color different from black, you’ll have to pay an extra $1500 to $2500. The autopilot function will cost you an extra $3000, and an autopilot for highways costs $5000. Moreover, if you choose to add an autopilot mode after the car got delivered to you. the price will be $7000.
However, there is one really great feature. With Tesla Model 3 you have a 7-day trial period, after which you can return the vehicle and get a full refund.
“Quite literally, you could buy a Tesla, drive several hundred miles for a weekend road trip with friends and then return it for free,” says the company’s blog post.
