Tesla Model 3 has registered a swashbuckling 2.32 Lakh orders worldwide, confirmed CEO Elon Musk via official Twitter handle. Completely astounded by the overwhelming response that Model 3 is receiving, Musk tweeted that the company is definitely going to rethink about the production planning. The Model 3 was unveiled on Thursday at the company's design centre in California. The price for the base variant of Model 3 is $35,000, and it has a driving range of 350 kilometers.

Tesla Model 3 can be booked online at the company's website by paying $1,000, while deliveries are expected to start around mid 2017. The Model 3 is the most affordable Tesla ever produced as it attracts a price tag, which is almost half of its sibling models. Elon Musk said that average price of a Tesla Model 3 with options would be nearly $42,000, and that the company has made around $7.5 Billions in a day as the total number of bookings during that period of time were 1.80 Lakhs. Model 3 can easily accommodate 5 adults, while flaunting a grille-less front fascia, panoramic glass roof and an elongated hood. 

Elon Musk, overwhelmed with joy, tweeted that future of electric cars is bright and he is fairly confident of delivering the first car in 2017. For those asking, Tesla has an infamous history of not meeting the deadlines for its models and hence, the company needs to be extra careful with Model 3. Coming loaded with Tesla's Autopilot hardware, the Model 3 can accelerate to 97kmph from standstill in mere 6 seconds. Tesla Motors would also enter the Indian market with the Model 3 in 2018 and would install a supercharger network across the nation, so that buyers can conveniently charge their cars.
