The Tesla Model 3 is finally here. More than a year after Elon Musk debuted the 3 at Tesla’s California headquarters, the CEO took to Twitter late last night to confirm that the first is about to roll off the line this coming Friday.
Whereas the existing Model S sedan and Model X crossover have been status symbols for the well-heeled, the 3 is Musk’s attempt an a Tesla for the masses. It’s supposed to start at a sticker price of $35,000 (before government EV tax credits) and make 215 miles of range.

As you can see from Musk’s updates, production ramps up slowly at first. But in a subsequent tweet, Musk said Tesla should be able make 20,000 Model 3s per month starting in December. At that rate, however, it’s going to take a long time to meet demand. Hundreds of thousands of people got on the waiting list for the 3 when Tesla let them put down thousand-dollar deposits back in March 2016.
