Elon Musk the CEO of Tesla has announced that the Tesla Model 3 will go on sale from 7th July. Elon Musk said that the first production model of the hotly anticipated Model 3, is the company’s attempt to bring an electric car to the masses.

The first 30 Model 3 customers will receive their new Teslas on the 28th at a handover party, according to the second tweet from Musk.

The car is to start around $35,000 and with a $7,500 federal electric car tax credit, could cost $27,500. Tesla says the five-seat car will be able to go 215 miles (133 kilometres) on a single charge and will be sporty, accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in under six seconds.

Musk had said that production was on track to start in July, but Tesla has often faced delays in getting vehicles to market. The Palo Alto, the California-based company aims to make 5,000 Model 3 sedans per week by the end of this year and 10,000 per week in 2018.

The Model 3 was first unveiled over a year ago at a lavish event at Tesla’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California. At the time, Musk said he was "fairly confident" that deliveries will begin by the end of 2017, and "you will not be able to buy a better car for $35,000, even with no options."
