The Tesla Model 3 range, 0-60 time, storage space and other key Model 3 specs arrive via a Model S vs Model 3 comparison of talking points designed to help buyers understand the new Tesla.

Tesla Model 3 production should start in July 2017, but it will be up to a year before many buyers get a Model 3 delivery. If you place a Tesla Model 3 reservation today, expect a delivery in Mid 2018 at the best case.
