If you are anything like me, we can both agree on the fact that Tesla is one of the most economically friendly super cars out on the market. A few hours ago, founder and CEO Elon Musk announced that the Model 3 is ready for production and that the first car is expected to be completed by Friday.
Now, Tesla is not the cheapest automobile by any means, but what makes this car special is that it is Tesla’s entry level car, and starts just at 35k before taxes; a number that most of the general population can truly stand behind.
Sources say that the company should expect to produce 20,000 vehicles by this December.

Elon Musk has a net worth at about $16.7 billion dollars. The entrepreneur’s mission is to try and redefine transportation on earth and space, and hopefully aim to bring fully-electric vehicles to the mass market. Prior to starting Tesla, he made his fortune as a cofounder of PayPal. Other sources say that the Model 3 is a critical test to hopefully turn Tesla into a mass producer.
