The Master Story behind Tesla's Model 3 Launch

The car would be priced at $35,000 and delivery would begin in the second half of 2017. Musk emphasized that, even if the car is bought with no additional features/options, it would still promise most of the features of Tesla’s previous models. Regarding the production strategy that Tesla has in place, Musk mentions that the factory at Fremont currently produces 500,000 cars per year.

The gigafactory would produce more li-ion batteries than all other factories in the world combined which would translate to 50 giga watt-hours per year in production.

SolarCity: Making clean energy available at a cost lesser than today’s polluting sources. The Hyperloop initiative: a conceptual high-speed transportation system aimed at revolutionizing public travel. And then the Open AI initiative who’s the name is in itself self-explanatory. His past ventures include PayPal, Zip2 and
