Tesla Model 3

Right-hand Drive Tesla Model 3The clip above doesn’t show much, but it does show a car, with all car-like essentials apparently working, and what looks like poppy acceleration speed. The car is Tesla’s $35,000 electric vehicle with a minimum of 215 miles promised by the company, and production set to kick off in earnest in July.

He then showed off this quick video of a Model 3 doing what looks to be a bit of a launch. It’s short and in a dark car park, but while the acceleration is a little short of Ludicrous, it does look plenty brisk for a car in this price category. Musk called this specific car a “release candidate,” which in software development terms means a version that’s nearly production-ready. Hopefully that means Tesla is close to wrapping up its testing.

Musk also reiterated the reasoning behind the car’s name – the intent was to call it the Model E, but Ford blocked this because of its trademark on that name. The crude humor behind the idea was to have the names of Tesla’s first three models spell out “S–E-X.” Awkward dad joke CEO at the height of his craft.
