With the launch of its Model 3 sedan, Tesla has raised the bar for electric car sales and the industry is getting ready to see how the company can take the next step into mass market.
The Tesla Model 3 has just gone on sale in the US and there have been some interesting developments, including a new fuel cell and battery manufacturing process.
It has been a little less than a month since the first Model 3 car was sold and a couple of reports have surfaced claiming the car is a success and that the Model 3 can go mainstream.
Tesla’s electric car has a base price of $37,500.
That’s around $1,400 more than the $30,000 starting price of the Model S. However, the company has now raised the base price for the Model X SUV to $49,000.
In addition to the base prices, the price of Model 3 will rise to $70,000, which is also around $2,000 more than that of the first model.
This new pricing model is expected to go into effect next month and is expected by some to give Tesla an edge over rivals such as General Motors, Ford and Toyota.
A new Tesla Model S SUV is pictured at the company’s Gigafactory in Nevada.
It is expected in 2019 to start production of Model S vehicles.
While the Model E, which the company unveiled in October, is expected be an affordable and affordable car, there are some new models on the way to the market.
In the first quarter of 2019, the Model Y sedan will hit the road in the UK and will be priced at around £38,000 ($56,000).
Tesla says that the Y will be available to customers in 2018.
Last month, the Chinese carmaker unveiled its new EV, the Tesla Model Y. And Tesla also announced the introduction of a new electric car for sale in China, the $50,000 Model X. China has seen a rapid growth in its electric car market over the past few years.
The market is expected soon to grow to $2 trillion and by 2020, China will have a total of 6,000 million electric vehicles on the road.
That means Tesla will have an estimated market share of more than half of the global market by 2020.
