Will you be trading in your car keys for a new Tesla Model 3?
It appears that Tesla is not quite ready with its final designs for the new Model 3 despite already having over 400,000 deposits. But you have to hand it to Elon Musk, he has certainly turned up the excitement for his new vehicle.
The auto industry’s disruptor-in-chief has done it again. With the public reveal of his BMW 3 Series-fighting Tesla Model 3 in April, Elon Musk did something the auto industry has failed to do in more than half a century: get people truly excited about a new car. So excited, in fact, that about 400,000 of them have reportedly plunked down a $1,000 deposit for a vehicle that’s said to be still more than a year away from the showroom.
The last time the auto industry saw anything like this, the Beatles were on top of the Billboard charts, Lyndon Johnson was in the White House, and the tragedy of Vietnam had yet to sear America’s psyche. The car that did it was, of course, Ford’s original Mustang. See more…
TeslaTesla stunned the world in March when it introduced its Model 3 electric car, the company’s first affordable vehicle that will go into production later next year. Tesla’s designers and engineers clearly put a lot of thought into how the car looks and operates. It’s the best looking affordable electric car we’ve seen yet — hopefully the first of many.

And while the Mustang was America’s car, it appears that Tesla has a larger image and marketplace.
As it turns out, many of those reservations may have come from a country that now represents one of the largest markets for electric cars.
“The potential is huge,” Tesla global vice president Robin Ren said recently, without disclosing the exact number of Chinese reservations.
In China, the Model 3 will sell for close to the $35,000 base price of U.S. versions, and Chinese customers must put down a deposit of 8,000 yuan (just under $1,300).read more at greencarreports.com
