Tesla Model 3's Design Expected To Remain The Same

Tesla Model 3
The Tesla Model 3 is considered as one of the most anticipated vehicles of all time. The Californian company received nearly 400,000 pre-orders worth upwards of US$ 10 billion simply by showing off a close-to-production prototype. No other automaker has ever pulled off such a feat.

The reason is because the all-electric Model 3 is the car motorists all over the globe have been waiting for since the launch of the original Roadster — a Tesla designed and built for the masses. Production started ahead of schedule, and there is less than a month away from its launch ceremony.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the new car is its design. Built atop a new platform, the Tesla Model 3 is a compact four-door sedan aimed at well-established players in the luxury segment like the BMW 3 Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the other best sedans on the market. Visually, it takes Tesla's striking design language in a new direction.

Pictures of the very first production car posted on Twitter reveal that the 3's design hasn't changed much in its transition from a concept to a production car. Its front end is characterized by a low hood, a feature made possible because an electric motor is markedly smaller than a gasoline- or diesel-burning engine.

A tall, arched roof line clears up a generous amount of space for five passengers inside. The back end borrows styling cues such as horizontal lights connected by a strip of chrome trim from the bigger Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X, but it’s not a carbon copy of either. Tesla has avoided the Russian doll-type approach to drawing cars that its German competitors are stuck in.

The Tesla Model 3 stretches 184 inches from bumper to bumper, a figure that makes it about a foot shorter than the Model S. Want a closer look? Tesla will live-stream the first 30 deliveries of the Model 3 on 28 July at Tesla.com. The event kicks off at 8:45 P.M. (PT) and Elon Musk will be handing the first set of keys over to a very lucky customer ... himself.

Tesla Board of Directors member Ira Ehrenpreis would have received the first delivery as he was the first to place a full deposit, but he was kind enough to gift his place in line to Tesla's CEO as a 46th birthday present.
