The $35,000 Model 3 is Tesla’s first sedan targeted at a consumer audience. It’s a big moment for CEO Elon Musk, who wrote in his 2006 “Master Plan” that his ultimate goal for Tesla was to produce an affordable electric car.
“Build sports car. Use that money to build an affordable car. Use that money to build an even more affordable car,” Musk wrote at the time.
The event will kick of mass production of the Model 3, with the ultimate goal of producing 20,000 sedans a month in December.
