Remember when we told you how to make a reservation for the Tesla Model 3?

Well now, it’s here (sort of), but it won’t ship to customers till late 2017. Instead, what we’ve got is more details about the car, the opportunity to preorder, and a ton of pictures. Works fine for me. And get this: Elon says Tesla has received more than 130,000 pre-orders already for the Model 3, which is more than anyone anticipated.

Chew on that, if you had any doubts that electric cars are the future. Aaaand it looks amazing.

Here’s what we know. The base model of the car will cost around $35,000 and go over 215 miles on a single charge. It will do 0-60 mph in under 6 seconds (0-100 kmph real quick), with the more expensive options going “much faster”. All versions of the Model 3 will support Tesla’s supercharging network (those are free charging stations that charge your cars fully in minutes, not hours).

Because it’s a mass market car, Tesla has to worry about stuff like legroom, cargo capacity and all the other stuff that medium-sized families care about in a car. And Elon has nailed all that with this one. “You can fit a 7-foot long surfboard on the inside”.

I’m really not sure what to say at the end of this post, because I’m so blown away. So, I’m just going to stick in a bunch of Model 3 pictures and let you drool like I just did. Bye.
