Tesla Model 3 in action


Tesla’s Model 3 was released Friday to its first owners: 30 lucky employees who will be beta testing the electric sedan before the rest of us mere mortals get our hands on one.

The first owners all received the higher-end model, priced at $44,000. The Model 3’s base model will cost just $35,000, putting it in the same price range as the Chevy Bolt EV.
