Tesla revealed its Model 3 last year, but there haven’t been many versions hitting the streets. Tesla hasn’t even released a beta version of the vehicle yet (and at this rate, they probably won’t). So that makes this minute-long clip done by Unplugged Performances – a Tesla customizing shop – even cooler. The short but sweet video shows the Model 3 prototype driving down a street in Hawthorne, California.
The company still says production will begin later this summer. Musk noted in a recent conference call with MarketWatch that he’s not entirely sure a production-ready beta version will be unleashed before production starts up. Tesla’s corporate style rarely follows traditional market patterns. However, it’s still odd that the Model 3 would undergo a different production strategy. Looks like we’ll just have to wait until July to see how this all plays out.
The Model 3 boasts the “most affordable” price point of any other Tesla (and most other electric vehicles) at $35,000. Tesla says the car has a 215 mile range before needing to charge, and it goes from 0 to 60 mph in under six seconds.
