 In several Twitter posts on Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that the long-awaited Model 3 electric car will make its debut this month, and the first 30 new cars will be delivered to customers on July 28.
Musk says the new car "passed all regulatory requirements for production two weeks ahead of schedule." The first Tesla Model 3 electric car for the public is expected to roll off the assembly line on Friday.
The company will produce 100 cars in August and more than 1,500 in September. It looks like "we can reach 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in Dec," Musk tweeted.
Model 3 is a major step for the company, and will be priced around 35,000 U.S. dollars. It "achieves 215 miles (346 km) of range per charge" and is "designed to attain the highest safety ratings in every category."
