The Tesla Motor company still can’t catch a break as it looks like its affordable Model 3 delivery schedule will be further delayed until close to the end of the year. The company has been delivering its Model 3, to the tune of of about 10 thousand of them, but they’ve delivered a total of zero of the Model 3 at the base price. If you remember the hype around the notion of having a Tesla for less than $40K and how this was going to revolutionize the whole industry? Well it has actually changed the industry, see all the investments that other manufacturers are making into sustainable vehicles, but they have not been able to deliver a Model 3 at that price, yet.
The company is looking at delivering the original version of the Model 3, with a standard range of about 200 miles per charge, later this calendar year and has said that the newer all wheel drive dual motor versions may be available sometime at the end of the third quarter of the year. The only ones that are currently available are the more expensive single motor versions with a heftier battery pack for longer distances, but this one will cost you wayyy north of $50k USD.
