Model 3, the most important car Tesla has produced after the Roadster, which is both electric and stylish, will open a new page for the brand with its affordable price and high production amount. Here, we’ll put together all the details we know about the small electric sedan.
Sharing its financial results for the first quarter of 2021, Tesla announced that Model 3, which is spoken with its success in the electric vehicle market, now surpasses its internal combustion engine competitors.
What is Tesla Model 3?
Tesla’s vehicle, Model 3, which has great expectations, is an electric sedan that aims to appeal to many segments with its affordable price. The car is a product of the last piece of Musk’s first Secret Tesla Motors Plan: “Build a sports car. Make an affordable car with the money you earn from it. Make an even more affordable car with the money you earn from it.”
Tesla Model 3 is shown as one of the most performance cars of recent years. Tesla Model 3 series, which managed to be the most remarkable sedan car in 2021, continues to increase its popularity rapidly.
How much is the Tesla Model 3 price?
The Model 3 will be Tesla’s most affordable EV. The vehicle is expected to be sold for $ 35,000, excluding taxes. Tesla announced that it received over 300,000 orders for the Model 3, which will go into production in mid-2017. In other words, the delivery of an order placed right now may take the middle of 2018. Model 3, Tesla’s current selling price in America is $ 33,190 thousand.
What does the Model 3 Cabinet look like?
One of the biggest mysteries about the Model 3 was that before the car was released, the body and interior design were the same curiosity. Tesla said there will be a 15 “central touchscreen display in 3. The S and X models have a dashboard in front of the driver in addition to this 17” display. As you can see from the photo below, this screen will “float” unlike the embedded layout in other Teslas. This move looks a bit risky, but we can get used to this placement in the future.
What can he do?
Tesla has published the technical specifications draft of the Model 3. The main purpose of this document, which we have in the form of comparison, is to direct people to Model S instead of waiting for Model 3 for a year. Reaching 97 km / h from a standstill in 5.6 seconds, Model 3 has a range of over 350 km. Available with an optional glass roof and 18 or 19 “rims, the vehicle has around 100 customization options. Model 3 owners have to pay to take advantage of Tesla’s Supercharger network, unlike Model S and Model X users.
Model 3 has “Self Drive Feature”; In other words, vehicle owners will be able to open the Autopilot system for an extra fee.
Model 3 What’s under the hood?
Luggage. The loading space offered by the five-seat EV in the front and rear is 400 liters in total.
Now let’s come to what we actually want to express with the question, namely power. The capacity of the battery unit, located on the skateboard style chassis, is 75 kWh. In the future vehicle with rear-wheel drive as standard, the Dual Engine option, which provides drive to all four wheels, will be offered as an option.
Tesla announces Model 3 as world’s best-selling premium sedan
We have gotten used to seeing the Tesla Model 3, the most affordable model in the product range of Tesla, the US electric vehicle manufacturer, as the ‘best selling electric car in the world’ in recent years. We’ve even witnessed the Model 3 surpass its internal combustion engine competitors in some markets, but this was not a global success.
According to Tesla, who recently shared the results for the first quarter of 2021, this situation has changed and it has become the best-selling premium sedan model in the world, surpassing models such as the Model 3, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Series. Tesla even shared the sales chart you see below to support this claim. It is seen that Tesla Model 3, shown here with the red line, is at the top.
“The Model 3, which has been produced for about 3.5 years and has not even been produced in Europe, has become the best-selling premium sedan model in the world, leaving behind long-term industry leaders such as the E Series and 3 Series. “The biggest indication that the vehicle can become a leader by leaving behind its internal combustion counterparts.”
On the other hand, although we are currently talking about the success of the Model 3, Tesla believes that the model Y crossover model, which is not the Model 3, will be more successful in the future. This is because the brand’s statement, “We believe that Model Y can be not only a category leader, but the best-selling car in the world on a global scale” shows this. Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, also stated that Tesla will be in a position to deliver 1 million Model Y per year in the future.
So, in the short term, could Model Y sales outperform Model 3? According to the financial results announced by the company, 182 thousand 847 Model 3 / Y deliveries were made in the first quarter of 2021. In the chart above, we see that Model 3 deliveries are around 120 thousand units. So Model Y deliveries are around 60 thousand units.
This means that the Model 3 is well ahead of the Model Y in terms of delivery. But things could change with the start of Model Y production at two new factories, Gigafactory Berlin and Gigafactory Texas.
