Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you are likely familiar with the Tesla model 3 – a car that made headlines and broke records by getting around half a million orders within days of getting announced.
Originally first deliveries were scheduled for 2017; however, it emerged today that they have been delayed until mid-2018 or later.
The news doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise as many were wondering about whether Tesla was capable of meeting deadlines, considering it isn’t capable of producing that many cars at one.
As orders began piling up, it started to become apparent that Tesla wouldn’t be able to deliver the Tesla Model 3 in 2017 as first advertised.
Many customers will likely be disappointed, but considering just how much of an impression the car has made when it was announced, the excitement certainly outweighs the disappointment. Read more at evo.co.uk
Electric cars have been gaining momentum in the automotive industry in the recent years, with Tesla at the forefront of the movement. By introducing the Model 3, which is the first affordable mass produced electric car, Tesla has raised the bar for all other carmakers.
The Model 3 looks fantastic and its performance is just as great. It received universal acclaim upon its debut, and remains in high demand.
Tesla certainly knows what it’s doing, and the delay could actually not be that bad of a thing. It will give Tesla more time to produced and deliver the Model 3, meaning a slightly more polished product will be sold.
It’s better for Tesla to take all the time it needs rather than deliver something that’s unfished and unsafe.
The future looks bright for the brand so it will be very interesting to see what else Tesla has in store for us in the future.
The time has never been more perfect to sell your old car, and invest in an electric car. We are entering a new era, so become a part of it.
