Tesla Model 3: Based Model Ignored In Favor Of China

By  | 

With a lot of people still waiting for Tesla to bring in the base Tesla Model 3 that they promised, you would think that Tesla will be trying to work towards that first but it is not as Tesla announce that they will now start taking orders for the Tesla Model 3 in China.

According to the reports, delivering will begin in March or Aril. It was also added that Tesla is looking to build their first factory outside of the US in China. China is currently the largest market for an electric vehicle so it made sense that Tesla would want to tell their vehicles there.

The Gigafactory will be building both the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y and will have an annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles. Tesla plans to start producing about 3000 Model 3 per week in the initial phase to reduce the impact of tariffs.

As for when we will be seeing the base option here in the US, well, no word on that yet but hopefully more details will surface soon.
