The next step in's revolution of the automotive scene is underway - limited production of the 'mass-market' Tesla Model 3 has begun at the company's plant in Fremont, California.

Elon Musk has effectively 'launched' the car after tweeting two photos of the first production-spec unit of the new Model 3. He also announced that 30 customers will receive their cars at a party to be held on July 28, 2017. The base price of the has been set at $35,000 (~Rs 22.59 lakh) before taxes/incentives.

The Tesla Model 3 is an entry-level sedan from the company that will compete against car like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Jaguar XE, Volvo S60 etc.

Tesla has revealed only limited specifications of the car as of now; it will be powered by a 75kWh battery pack with power sent to either the rear wheels or all-wheels via electric motors mounted in the corresponding axles. Tesla has stated a maximum range of 215+ miles (~356+km), 0-100kmph in 'under 6 seconds' and its compatibility with the company's 'Supercharger' network. It can seat 5 adults and is apparently designed to achieve 5-Star crash safety rating (most probably in NHSTA tests). The Model 3 will also get.

Leaked details online suggest that the 0-100kmph time is 5.6 seconds to be exact, but is vague on which variant (RWD or AWD) achieves the figure. Owners of the Model 3 will be able to charge their cars in Tesla's Supercharging network but for a price. The leaked documents also suggest that the Model 3 will feature a 15-inch, dashboard-mounted touchscreen display - Tesla has not revealed any photos of the interiors of the production unit. The combined luggage space in the Model 3 is apparently 396-litres; it has a standard manually operated rear trunk and a manually operated front trunk (or 'frunk').

According to the last reports from the company back in May 2016, there are more than 3.73 lakh reservations for the car from customers worldwide, and we expect this number to have gone up by a big margin in the period since. Tesla expects the only 1 lakh cars to be ready by the end of 2017, and an additional 4 lakh units to be produced in 2018. Customers booking their cars now can expect their cars to be delivered only in late 2018 or later
