During tonights handover of the first 30 Model 3s, Elon Musk shared additional details on the capabilities of the standard and long range editions of their entry-level car.
The Tesla founder showed off the minimalist production interior, which features a 15" display that is placed at the center of the dash as drivers in the years ahead won't have to keep their attention locked on a traditional dashboard during autonomous driving. The company also focused on its safety developments as the founder played footage of a side impact crash where the Model 3 faired much better than the current Volvo S60.
The standard $35,000 model will be capable of 220 miles of range and will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The higher-end long range model will cost $44,000 and boast 310 miles of range, a 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph. Both models and every Tesla made from now on are capable of fully autonomous driving.
For those who are submitting pre-orders now, Musk says those reservations will be fulfilled later next year.
