Tesla Model 3 pre-orders expected to cross the magical 300,000 mark

Tesla Model 3

Model 3 is going to be the next iconic electric car in Tesla’s line-up of environmentally-friendly and stylish four wheelers. That fact is evident from the number of pre-orders Tesla has received for the Model 3 which got revealed as expected a few moths ago. Starting March 31st the number of pre-orders for Tesla Model 3 has touched 276,000 and with one more day left, one can expect it to cross the magical figure of 300,000. Now that is a huge number in just 4 days for an electric vehicle and it clearly shows the kind of name Tesla Motors has made for itself in the last few years. Carrying a price tag of $35,000 (almost half than the price of Model S) the Tesla Model 3 is going to be delivered by late 2017 or early 2018. The car is 20% smaller than Model S and it will go from 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds.

Detroit Auto Show: Tesla Motors to develop Gen 3 electric car with low cost and improved range

Tesla Motors' Gen 3 electric car

When it comes to the realm of electric vehicles, the Nissan Leaf has been the dominant automobile by its sheer volume of sales. Perhaps, this has something to do with its family oriented hatchback credentials, complemented by a substantial 75 mile range and a plausible pricing of around $29,000. Tesla Motors on the other hand have been dealing with the more opulent variant of electric cars, starting with the Roadster, which was the first electric sportscar, to the recently released Model S, which is once again a hatchback, ‘luxury’ sedan. However, the automaker is certainly looking forth to bridge that economic gap with their announced Gen 3 (or Model E). According to the grapevine from the on-going Detroit Auto Show 2014, Gen 3 will entail the company’s planned lower-cost electric vehicle line, and is expected to make its commercial splash by 2017.

HEVO Power designs EV charging spots that pose as manholes

HEVO Power's manhole charging spot

When it comes to realm of electric vehicles, the scope doesn’t only entail zero emission driving, but also encompasses those ever cumbersome charging stations (and sometimes their lack thereof). New York-based company HEVO Power looks forth to change all of these by an ingenious solution of their own – designing special manholes that can wirelessly charge the EVs. So, instead to bowing down to all the paraphernalia of wires and connections, the driver just has to park his/her vehicle over the manhole for an easy wireless charging session. In other words, the entire scope would traverse the need of cords and cluttered sideways, thus achieving a completely hazard free and convenient ambit for EV drivers and pedestrians alike.
