April 07, 2017: The production-spec Tesla Model 3 has been spied ahead of its official announcement and deliveries. The near-production prototype made its world premiere in April 2016 with promised commencement of global sales in 2017, including India. Elon Musk, the man behind Tesla, assured during its reveal that the base variant of the Model 3 will start around $35,000 (nearly INR 22 Lakhs). It will also have the Model S/X’s Ludicrous mode and will be equipped with full self-driving hardware. The completely undisguised Model 3, which was spied in Tesla's facility, looks identical to the prototype showcased last year. The interiors are similar to the prototype as well, featuring a clean clutter-free layout. There is just one large screen which is horizontally placed in the centre.
