Tesla To Reveal Driveable Model 3 Prototype, Not Concept

As Tesla is preparing for the big reveal of the Model 3 on March 31, more details surface about the new electric car thanks to the invitations sent to owners and media.

The most important of those is that Tesla won’t just reveal a concept of the final car but a working prototype of the Model 3 which is expected to hit the market in 2017, Bloomberg reports.

There were many talks about whether Tesla is on schedule with the Model 3’s development and having a drivable car on the event might help in putting these concerns to rest.

After all, this is the most important car Tesla is going to offer, as the brand hopes to see their sales volume to explode after the reveal. Tesla says that they have learned from past mistakes as all of their previous models have missed their production deadlines and they are on track for bringing the Model 3 on the road.

The most affordable Tesla will be similar in size with models like the BMW 3-Series and the Audi A4 and around 20 per cent more compact than the Model S and is expected to cost around $35,000.

The event will be held at the Tesla Design Studio in California with fewer than 800 guests, including 650 current Tesla owners and their guests “as a token of our appreciation for your support,” according to the invitation sent by the company.
