Tesla, the electric vehicle manufacturing company has produced its new Sedan Model 3 electric car; it is a highly anticipated car for its relatively low price tag. Tesla has already delivered the cars for first 30 customers. About 500,000 people around the world have paid $1,000 to reserve a car.
The electric manufacturer is evaluating options to foray into the Indian market with Model 3. However, there is a problem with the current tax slab, so they are asking the Government to grant some interim relief on imports till a local assembling plant gets into operation. Telsa Model 3 is one of the most suitable cars for the Indian market. Electric cars have never been an interest in the people, but this car can bring that attention back into this section.
Talking about Tesla Model 3, it seems like a mini model car, and it can accommodate five adults comfortably. It can clock 0-96kmph under 6 seconds, and mileage will be around 346km on a single charge. The car has some surprises starting with no instrument panel, the odometer and other details will be seen on the center screen. No key, the car can be opened, started and locked using a smartphone or a card that comes with the car. Even it has a camera, radar and other hardware for Autopilot. The company will also place supercharger network across India to provide fast charging.
Tesla Model 3 would start production in 2017, so one can expect the first car in India by 2018. The Model 3 would be retailed as CBU in India and expect the pricing to be around Rs. 35 Lakhs; However, it may avail you a plenty of benefits under the FAME initiative of Government of India.
