Tesla released a product to really be able to encourage the adoption of electric cars. Model 3 sedan for US $ 35,000 is an important step in Elon Musk CEO's vision to accelerate the world's transition to clean energy, though not the cheapest because GAC Motor's GE3 SUV is in the $ 22,500 range and Volkswagen I.D. is planned at US $ 28,000.

Tesla's popularity has forced the entire auto industry to build electric vehicles. Volvo has determined to stop production of fuel cars by 2019. Major countries in Europe have installed a gasoline car ban time, even India has set the year 2030 clean of fossil fuels.

Musk said the company passed "expensive production" to present three previous models. Model 3 is a minimalist design where Tesla will produce more cars faster. Manual door, half body steel and not aluminum, and only one screen on the dashboard.
