The futuristic looking car you are looking at is not a concept. This is the much-anticipated Model 3 electric car for the masses.
Tesla boss Elon Musk unveiled the entry-level Tesla in Los Angeles. Priced at $35,000 (about £24,500), it will be able compete with other mainstream EVs including the Nissan LEAF and BMW i3.
First deliveries of the Model 3 are due to begin in late 2017, though before the car had been unveiled, Tesla received 115,000 pre-orders. Current Model S and X owners will get priority and it will be available in the States first.
The car will have a range of 215 miles per charge and a 0-60mph time of less than six seconds.
Tesla claims the car will be able to seat five people in comfort and is hoping to make 500,000 vehicles a year.
The Model 3’s roof area is one continuous pane of glass and, unlike the best-selling Model S and Model X SUV, there’s no grille or radiator. Inside, it features Tesla’s trademark massive centre console screen.
Industry observers say the Model 3 is a make or break car for the Californian company which currently makes 50,000 cars a year.
