Tesla just published a blogpost with information about making a reservation for the Model 3. The Model 3 is supposed to be Tesla’s first mass market vehicle, so this is sort of a big deal.

Now, while I’ve gone on and on about how Elon Musk is a real life Tony Stark, and how Teslas are the coolest things EVER, I’ve never seriously considered getting one. For starters, I live in a country that generates as much electricity as Edinburgh, so getting an all-electric car cannot be anywhere near the top of my priority list. Let me find fuel first. Secondly, there’s the fact that they cost a ton of money (according to my humble pockets), and they really aren’t designed for the mass market. That is, until now.

The Model 3 will debut on March 31st, but you won’t see any of them on the road until late 2017. To make a reservation, you’ll need to either visit a Tesla store, or visit the site at 8:30PM Pacific Time (that’s 4:30AM for those of us in Lagos). You’ll need to pay $1000 to get your name on the list though.

I read the terms and conditions (yes, I do that from time to time) and if you change your mind and cancel the reservation, you’ll get a full refund. If you’re anything like me, you might as well use it to save money for yourself. Make a reservation and then cancel it a year later.
