Tesla Model 3 on performance test and final tuning.

Quote:
Those sensors can be used for force measurements in order to tune the performance of the vehicle, model tire usage, calculate efficiency, and other things. So far, the company has only confirmed a “0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5.6 seconds” and a range of “over 215 miles” for the base version of the car.

Elon Musk will be gifting himself the FIRST Model 3. The other 29 copies will be handed over to TESLA employees / current owners of Tesla EVs.

After that, Musk has promised to ship 100 Model 3s next month and around 1,500 in September, eventually ramping up to 10,000 per week.

Tesla Model 3 sees 10% cancellations.

From a high of 518,000 reservations, the order books currently number approximately 455,000 deposits as per the electric vehicle manufacturer’s latest quarterly earning call.

About 63,000 people had cancelled their bookings in the past year.

But Musk refers it as thus:
Quote:
It's like if you're a restaurant and you're serving hamburgers and there's like an hour-and-a-half wait for hamburgers - do you really want to encourage more people to order more hamburgers?
On the brighter side,
Quote:
The chief executive officer highlights that Tesla has been averaging 1,800 new reservations per day since Friday, the day that marked the handover of the first 30 production-spec Model 3 vehicles.

The model 3 is a technological disruption in the space occupied by the 3 and the C etc . A lot of people mostly youngsters and pensioners who want to either go green or have a simple car and just charge it at home and drive limited will go for it . The cancellations are bound to happen coz the waiting line is just too long. I was expecting the car to come to India in 2018 but I won't be surprised if it doesn't come before 2019 end. I obviously hope it gets here quickly. I feel Mercedes and BMW will feel the heat from the model 3 and I hope they bring out their electric versions quickly. Lesser moving parts so that means people will own cars longer as over the air software update will update the car and the only differentiating factor will be maybe newer looks and longer battery range / performance

Tesla Burns Through Less Cash Than Expected.
Looks like Tesla is on a steady path to sustainability , it will be an interesting few months to watch out for. Production hell is the term Musk uses for churning out Model 3 units.
