Tesla CEO Elon Musk Gets SN1 – The First Tesla Model, Deliveries Start July 28
It took just four words on his official Twitter account for Tesla CEO Elon Musk to bring big, broad smiles to car enthusiasts and reviewers. By showing the picture of Tesla's "First Production Model 3", it's simply irresistible.
According to Tesla official website, "Model 3 combines real world range, performance, safety and spaciousness into a premium sedan that only Tesla can build. Our most affordable car yet, Model 3 achieves 215 miles of range per charge while starting at only $35,000 before incentives. Model 3 is designed to attain the highest safety ratings in every category."
Why not amazed with Tesla Model 3? With a 215 miles range per charge, under 6 seconds from zero to 60mph, supercharging feature and autopilot hardware features which was designed to achieve 5-star safety ratings, Tesla Model 3 is not your typical speedster which can seat only 2 persons - Tesla Model 3 can seat 5 adults! But most of all, it's just $35,000.
According to Motor Authority, the picture of Tesla Model 3 Musk posted on Twitter was referred to internally as "SN1," which is an acronym for Serial Number 1. This Tesla Model 3 card was reportedly completed at Tesla's car plant in Fremont, California only last Friday.
And the owner of this Tesla Model 3 SN1? According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, this car belongs to Tesla board member Ira Ehrenpreis as he was the first person to make full deposit on Tesla Model 3. But this is not for Ehrenpreis to use; rather this Tesla Model 3 will serve as his 46th birthday gift to Musk which the latter acknowledge on his Twitter account.
Based on previous announcement from the Tesla CEO, the deliveries of Tesla Model 3 will start July 28. Some reports suggested that some of the first Tesla Model 3 cars will be handed over to its rightful owners during a special event at the Fremont plant.
The production of Tesla Model 3 is expected to reach 100 cars by August. Tesla then targets to increase this number by over 1,500 by September and around 20,000 by December. Tesla is expected to produce 500,000 cars per year starting 2018. Currently, Tesla has an estimated 400,000 pre-orders for the Model 3.
