Musk also spoke about the value of the car. All-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 with all the options except installation of the autopilot, will cost $78 000. “Almost as much as a BMW M3, but 15% faster and with better handling. On the road will bypass all in this class,” wrote Musk.

In January CNBC, citing current and former Tesla employees reported that the company is experiencing significant problems with the release of the Model 3 sedan. Problems associated with the fact that batteries for EVS are produced partly by hand and employees in Nevada cannot cope with the workload. In order to solve the problem and to speed up production, Tesla has had to ask the partner — Japanese Panasonic — allocate their staff to build batteries, told the TV station.

Tesla started deliveries of the mass Model 3 electric car in July last year. The design of the Model 3 designed for mass production capabilities, including through simplification of option packages.
