Tesla started taking pre-orders for their new Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle last week and now the company has revealed that they have received a total of 325,000 registrations of their new EV in just 7 days.
To put this into perspective, this means that if all of the customers who paid the $1000 deposit for the Model 3 buy their car, Tesla has a total of $14 billion on future sales on their new EV, this is very impressive for a car which wont launch until later next year.
We’ve now received more than 325,000 reservations, which corresponds to about $14 billion in implied future sales, making this the single biggest one-week launch of any product ever. This interest has spread completely organically. Unlike other major product launches, we haven’t advertised or paid for any endorsements. Instead, this has been a true grassroots effort driven by the passion of the Tesla team that’s worked so hard to get to this point and our current and future customers who believe so strongly in what we are trying to achieve.
Tesla has also not revealed all the details about their new Model 3, what we know so far is that it will have a range of around 215 miles and will have a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of under 6 seconds.
Pricing for the new Tesla Model 3 starts at $35,000, but with federal rebates the actual cost of the car drops to around $27,500 and it is even lower in some states.
