The Tesla Model 3 is a mid-size (US) / compact executive (EU)[6] luxury all-electric four-door sedan manufactured and sold by Tesla, Inc.[1] According to Tesla officials, the Model 3 Standard Battery version delivers an EPA-rated all-electric range of 220 miles (354 km) and the Long Range Battery version delivers 310 miles (500 km).[3] The Model 3 has a minimalist dashboard with only a center-mounted LCD touchscreen.[7] Tesla stated that the Model 3 carries full self-driving hardware to be optionally enabled at a future date.[8][9][10]

Within a week of unveiling the Model 3 in 2016, Tesla revealed they had taken 325,000 reservations for the car, more than triple the number of Model S sedans sold by the end of 2015. These reservations represent potential sales of over US$14 billion.[11][12] By August 2017, there were 455,000 net reservations, and an average of 1,800 reservations were being added per day.[13][14]

Limited production of the Model 3 began in mid-2017, with the first production vehicle rolling off the assembly line on July 7, 2017,[15][16][17] and the official launch and delivery of the first 30 cars on July 28.[18] On July 1, 2018, it was announced that Tesla had met its production goal of 5,000 cars in a week.[19][20][21] Total production through end of June 2018 has been 28,578 cars.[22][23]

In May 2018, Consumer Reports Model 3 testing found “big flaws — such as long stopping distances in our emergency braking test and difficult-to-use controls”, finding the braking distance worse than a Ford F-150 full-size pickup truck, and causing it to not recommend the car. Tesla responded to the claims with concern and, a few days later (over a weekend), released an over-the-air (OTA) update fixing the anti-lock braking algorithm. Consumer Reports, impressed with the prompt – and unprecedented – brake fix OTA update, verified the improved braking performance and changed its rating to a recommended model.[115][116]

Consumer Reports’ remaining concerns about wind noise and an uncomfortable rear seat were also quickly remedied in production, according to Elon Musk. Some of the consumer group’s other concerns about the clumsy touch screen user interface might also be addressed via OTA updates.
