first copies Model 3 in March in the hands




of European customers
Tesla has opened up the online compiler for the Model 3 in Europe and China since Friday, without customers having to pay 1000 euros in reservation fees. Everyone there can now get started with the configurator. Tesla reports that the first cars will be delivered in March 2019.

Tesla announces that the configurator is open to everyone by e-mail to customers. It also states that customers who ‘order today’ can receive the car in March. Interested parties in Belgium, and twelve other European countries can also get started free of charge with the online compiler of the American automaker. To place an actual order, Tesla still requires a deposit of 2000 euros.

However, not all variants of the Model 3 are available. Customers can choose from a Long Range variant, which has a bit more range, and a Performance variant, which accelerates faster and has a higher top speed. Both have four-wheel drive; the variant of the Model 3 with rear wheel drive , which has less range but is also cheaper, is still lacking for the time being. This model is $ 7,000 cheaper in the US than the cheapest four-wheel drive variant.

There is also a Standard model that is missing, but that is not yet in production and therefore not even in the US for sale. This will be the cheapest Model 3 with a starting price of $ 35,000. That should happen sometime this year, but it is not known when exactly.

Tesla identified the third quarter of 2018 as ‘historic’ , thanks to the turnover generated by the Model 3. Model 3 was, according to Tesla, the first-best car sold in the United States in the third quarter, provided that SUVs and pick-up trucks are not included. In the area of ‚Äč‚Äčabsolute sales, the Model 3 came out on place five. The company then recorded no loss for the first time in two years, but a net profit of 312 million dollars.
