Before the week even started Tesla has announced that it’ll start taking configuration orders for regular customers who are not Tesla employees. In addition to that, the head of Panasonic has indicated that the production issues with the Model 3 at the Gigafactory are coming to the end and that the production numbers will go up “sharply” soon. So, it looks like the revolution is just about to start as the first customers will be getting their Model 3 sedans by the end of the month.
Also, EPA has released its rating for the long range Model 3 and it came up to 210 miles which is a little bit less than what was being reported earlier. It looks like Tesla has lobbied the EPA a little by requesting that the number will be lowered. This is most likely due to Tesla’s efforts to not have the Model 3 outshine its Model S and Model X cars in any category.
It should also be mentioned that the lack of bad news that Tesla had to deal with in the last couple of months is also a good news on its own. We only have a few more weeks to see what happens next and if Tesla Model 3 does start a revolution in the automotive industry as I’ve predicted.
