Orders will begin on site, and given the cult-ish nature of Tesla, it’s safe to assume that they’ll have more than a few in the books by the end of the night. There’s no thrill quite like ordering a car without having been inside it, driven it, or knowing how it performs.
Range should fall around 200 miles, and pricing is expected to start around $35,000, with the first vehicles arriving in fall of 2017.
Is $35k a low enough price of admission to get the average American in a fully electric car? Well, that all depends on what kind of equipment comes standard, how the car drives, and what kind of value proposition it brings to the stable.
Wait, no, sorry, had that wrong. They’re going to sell like crazy no matter what, because driving a Tesla solves all problems, all of them.
