Tesla’s Model 3, its mass-market car, expected to roll off factory floor Friday

  Tesla’s Model 3, its mass-market car, expected to roll off factory floor Friday The $35,000 electric car passed regulatory requirements two weeks ahead of schedule, and the first 30 owners will receive their cars at the end of the month, chief executive Elon Musk said.The $35,000 Model 3 passed regulatory requirements two weeks ahead of schedule and that the first 30 owners will receive their cars during a handover party on July 28, Musk said, paving the way for an ambitious production timeline. Musk had said earlier this year that the Model 3 would arrive by July. The company appears to be making good on its stated trajectory, even as Tesla has been beset by production delays and has overshot schedules in the past.

Tesla has completed the first production build of the Model 3 , according to a tweet by CEO Elon Musk. The announcement comes less than a week after Musk revealed that production of the highly anticipated electric car was two weeks ahead of schedule and the first “SN1”, or serial number 1 car

The world’s first Tesla Model 3 has rolled off the production line – and Tesla chief Elon Musk himself is the lucky owner of the historic electric car.

This isn’t the company boss pulling rank, either: a customer called Ira Ehrenpreis actually had rights to the first Model 3, but then passed them on to Musk for his 46th birthday present. “Tks Ira!” said Musk.

Angel investor Jason Calacanis owns the first Model S, and later jokingly tweeted to offer Musk the inaugural S:

Now it’s been built, the first Model 3 is going through final quality control checks, later to be joined by 29 other first-run Model 3s. They will be handed over to their new owners in a special ceremony planned for 28 July.

In order to meet them, Tesla is going to ramp up production quickly: by the end of the year, Musk is targeting an assembly rate of 10,000 Model 3 a week.

Tesla will open '2 or 3' more Gigafactories in the US .
It has to keep up with electric car demand on its home turf.Musk was definitely strategic with the announcement. He was speaking in front of the National Governors Association, which is full of politicians looking for economic opportunities -- he's no doubt hoping that governors will jockey for a Gigafactory (and offer incentives) in their state. At the same time, though, it may be a realistic forecast. Musk expects most new cars in the US to be EVs within 10 years, and to virtually dominate the market in 20. If Tesla doesn't have enough factories in place, it risks losing business as electric transportation hits the mainstream.
