Tesla increases performance of Model S and X

Musk had said that production was on track to start in July, but Tesla has often faced delays in getting vehicles to market.

"Handover party for first 30 customer Model 3's on the 28th!" he said.

California-based Tesla now sells only two luxury electric vehicles: the "Model S" sedan and the "Model X" SUV whose base price starts at around $80,000. But its bigger news is production of the new Model 3 is on track to start in July, a target we do not believe most thought would be met just 3-6 months ago, and representing Tesla's first auto to genuinely launch on schedule. (TSLA) has been a company valued, analyzed and judged based on the sales potential of mass-market cars that haven't launched yet, a major selloff on account of a slight quarterly delivery shortfall for the company's existing, costlier vehicles is a little odd at first glance. "This comes as demand for TSLA's established products (Model S and Model X) appear to be plateauing slightly below a 100k annual run rate". Tesla plans to produce a small batch of around 100 cars in August, increasing production to over 1,500 in September, and by the end of the year, the company may manufacture close to 20,000 cars per month.

Created to carry 5 passengers, have a range of around 345 kilometers on a single charge, accelerate from 0 - 100 kilometers per hour in under 6 seconds, and have the necessary support for semi-autonomous driving (Tesla's Autopilot hardware), Tesla 3 is being sold at a starting price of $35,000. So, in the base "Troika" Tesla will be able to pass on fully charged batteries up to 346 km. the Maximum speed of acceleration it is limited to only 97 kmh Reaches the upper limit of the machine for 6 seconds. The model is described as sporty.

In an even more welcome move, every Xbox 360 map pack now on sale in the Xbox Store will be made available to download for free. Additionally, they all support multiplayer and LAN play, including LAN cross-play from Xbox 360 to Xbox One.

Whichever theory you subscribe to, we can all agree it's going to be an interesting couple of months as Tesla ramps up Model 3 production and tries to prove it can finally roll out a vehicle on a mass-market scale. The first 30 customers will be handed keys to their brand new Model 3, which is expected to have a range of over 480 km on one full charge.

In fact, it's two weeks ahead of schedule, meaning the Freemont factory will build the first production EV this Friday. He further said that their mistake with the X was too much complexity at the beginning.

Becoming more of a mass-market carmaker will require overcoming the routine manufacturing issues that have handicapped output of the Model X at a time when American consumers are hungry for sport utility vehicles. While the Volvo announcement could be seen as validation for Tesla CEO Elon Musk's vision, it also highlights the intense competition Tesla is likely to face, Barclays analyst Brian Johnson said in a research note. They also want to increase them by another 50 percent to 100 percent in 2018.
