The news everyone had been waiting for all weekend was finally released via an Elon Musk tweet tonight. He stated the following: “Model 3 passed all regulatory requirements for production two weeks ahead of schedule. Expecting to complete SN1 on Friday”
I am assuming SN1 means “Serial Number 1” which would be the first production model off the assembly line! The Model 3 is coming a little bit quicker than we all expected and it seems that Tesla has pulled it off!
He then tweeted a few minutes later: “Handover party for first 30 customer Model 3’s on the 28th! Production grows exponentially, so Aug should be 100 cars and Sept above 1500.” And then a few more minutes later: “Looks like we can reach 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in Dec”
Can’t wait to get mine! Of course, even with my reservation being day one, and within the first 30-40 minutes of in-store reservations, I am assuming I am well beyond the initial runs he tweeted about due to the fact that I am on the east coast. I’m not expecting mine until much later in the year and perhaps even next Spring (if I wait for AWD).
