Elon Musk s Twitter informations :


"Model 3 will be RWD, with dual motor AWD optional. Even RWD will have great traction on ice due to fast torque response of Tesla drivetrain." ... "And, of course, it will have more cowbells."

"Signing off from impromptu Twitter AMA. Thanks for the suggestions. Btw, we really will have more cow bells."

"Coming soon for all Tesla cars. Just an OTA software update."

"Air suspension dynamically adjusts ride height."

"No, but we will need to build a factory in Europe to serve long-term regional demand as Fremont reaches max capacity."

"Torque is shifted between front & rear motors every ~.01 secs. Traction control is way better than a normal AWD. Digital vs analog."

Only way to get enough rear passenger headroom was to move the rear roof cross-car support beam. A bike will still fit no problem.

Model 3 Reservations FAQ

When will my Model 3 be delivered?

Model 3 production is scheduled to begin in late 2017. Once production begins, we will begin deliveries in North America starting on the West Coast, moving east. As we continue to ramp production, we will begin deliveries in Europe, APAC and right-hand drive markets. As we get closer to production, we will have more details to share with you.

How many Model 3 reservations can I make?

Two per person.

Can anyone, from any country reserve a Model 3?

Yes, anyone from countries listed on the drop down list on our website can reserve a Model 3.

"2017 is the year of the Model 3.

What’s the content? Where are the prototypes? When do we get to drive it? Will we want one? Is it as good (or better) than the Model S for less than 1⁄2 the price? When does it launch? "

“We do not expect the Model 3 to be launched in 2017. While we cannot rule it out, we do not adopt as our base case a scenario in which Model 3 deliveries begin in 2017. We recognize that Tesla management has targeted a 2H launch date and that they will make every effort to satisfy high levels of preliminary demand and fill orders for the product as soon as possible. However, our base case is for a launch in late 2018. We have taken this conservative approach to allow for the probability that Tesla will choose to prioritize the quality, cost, performance and lifesaving technology of the vehicle. While Tesla still adopts a high level of vertical integration, we expect the Model 3 to rely even more extensively on 3rd party suppliers than the Model S, potentially increasing the scope of supply-related factors outside of the company’s control.”

“Safety and sheer human driving pleasure are the two key attributes (in that order) that we expect Tesla to showcase with the Model 3, regardless of when it is launched. Elon Musk stated on the 3Q call that it did not need to raise capital (but he did not categorically rule it out). We have not modeled in a capital raise, but gross cash in our earnings model does dip below $1bn by the end of 2018. We only point out that the Model 3 is so important to this company’s future on multiple levels that they really have to get it right. One could reasonably expect Tesla to emphasize to the investment community the opportunity it has to accelerate the launch of what could be the world’s safest automobile and one that represents a potential step-change in real-world machine learning (and the subsequent social and economic benefits). We see ‘teasing’ the Model 3 launch as going hand and hand with efficiently funding the strategy. These two 2017 drivers appear to be inextricably linked.”
