Tesla has released 100,000 electric cars Model 3October 14, 2018
The serial version of the most affordable electric vehicle from the American company Tesla celebrates its first major anniversary. Recently, the 100-thousandth copy of the most “mass” model was released in the line of the largest manufacturer of “green” cars – the five-seat electric sedan Tesla Model 3.
Recall that at the end of the summer, experts, relying on their own calculations, made an unexpected statement: the Tesla Model 3 budget electric car turned out to be an unprofitable project. The experts supported their conclusion with statistics – the automaker loses about 6 thousand dollars from each such instance. It should be noted that the talk was about the electric sedan in the basic configuration, which costs the brand’s fans 35 thousand dollars. However, despite all the troubles, Tesla does not rush to write off this model from the accounts. So, in the media there was information that this week Tesla has increased the production of electric sedans Model 3 to 100 thousand.
In the third quarter alone, more than 53,000 such cars were produced. In addition, the company was finally able to increase the speed of production of the Tesla Model 3 – 5 thousand copies a week.
Progress, as they say, is obvious. For comparison, at the first time, when the Model 3 just got on the conveyor, the management of the company had to be content with several dozen electric cars a week. In total, there are 455 thousand people worldwide who have pre-ordered this budget model. When fans of environmentally friendly cars wait for their own copy of the Tesla Model 3 – is unknown. According to the most optimistic forecasts, this will happen only next year.
Meanwhile, the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, in his twitter account, announced that Teslaquila brand products were coming on sale soon. According to foreign media reports, under the new trademark, the manufacturer of electric vehicles will begin producing its own tequila.
