Tesla Made Elon Musk a Lot of Money Last Year

Tesla Model X

It has the potential to become the face of new generation electric vehicles for a really long duration. The mass-market #Tesla #Model 3 electric vehicle is ready to take on the world. Finally, Morgan Stanley reiterated an "overweight" rating and issued a $305.00 price objective on shares of Tesla in a research report on Saturday, March 25th.

This first Model 3 was given as a gift to Elon Musk by a Tesla board member. But not everyone needs an electric auto that has a range like the Bolt, if they're only going to use it for a 10-mile commute to work every day.

"In March, shortly after the tax change was announced and ahead of the April 1 deadline, 2,939 Tesla vehicles were registered there - nearly twice as many as in the last six months of 2016", write Tim Higgins and Charles Rollet. Consumers should consider how they will use the auto and the average number of miles they'll be putting on it before purchasing an electric vehicle, Mooney said.

The configurator will also show future options, such as a dual-motor version of the Model 3, similar to such existing products as the larger Model S P100d. Tesla committed to serve the balance of the pre-bookings by next year.

That is changing, and fast. By showing the picture of Tesla's "First Production Model 3", it's simply irresistible. This auto only costs $35,000. It's just that unfortunately, it costs twice as much as the petrol models. If this sort of trend continues -though it would not be halved each time as that is unsustainable-, their next iteration may very well be in the grasp of lower income households as well. Can you name an EV that got such a welcome? The stock's 52-week range is $178.19 to $386.99 and the 12-month price target is 283.89.

Meanwhile images from leaked earlier this year claim to give an insight into the "alien robot army" responsible for producing the Model 3.

Hong Kong has always been one of Tesla's biggest markets, but it may not be for much longer-not a single newly purchased Tesla model was registered in April, according to data from Hong Kong's transport department.

Range: Depending upon the mileage, how fast a auto is going and other factors, a nonelectric vehicle can get well over 350 miles on a full tank of gas, according to consumer finance website Bankrate.

This is not some weak motor barely capable of going 30 miles per hour. It can seat 5 people comfortably. A $3000 add-on to enable the full autopilot will be sold with the vehicle; however, as of this moment this feature is not available.

The popularity and hype around this auto does mean any new buyers will have to wait though. The only thing standing between Tesla and being the world's first mass-market electric carmaker is proving it can build, deliver, and service enormous numbers of these vehicles-without sacrificing quality.

As for retail customers, it's unclear what a typically equipped Model 3 will go for. Tesla hasn't provided an updated number since, but in any case, it's got a lot of cars to build to meet demand.
