"Don't impugn demand from the reservation number".

At a party that starts at 8:45 pm Pacific time, the company will hand over the keys to 30 of the more than 100,000 people who pre-ordered the Tesla Model 3, at $35,000 the company's first affordable electric auto. This means that if anything goes wrong with even one part, production can be slowed down.

"We're trying to have as close to a single configuration as possible as we boot up the production line", said Musk. The electric auto company's newest vehicle went to 30 employees Friday.

His Boring Company is part of a vision for near-supersonic rail travel via low-pressure tubes, which he laid out in a hyperloop white paper he made open to other entrepreneurs.

Musk has kept investors enamoured despite manufacturing hiccups that have regularly bedevilled Tesla. Buyers ordering now are being told to expect delivery late next year. Tesla delivers its first Model 3 vehicles yesterday in what is likely to be a milestone for electric cars and possibly for the entire auto industry.

Elon Musk seems to think Tesla has done it. Rather than ease expectations, Musk doubled down on moving up his target for producing 400,000 Model 3 cars from 2020 to 2018. His only worry at the time was whether it would be a better strategy to pour his entire fortune into only one of them, to give it the best chance of survival. The company predicts it will be able to produce 250,000 of the new Model 3, eventually scaling up to half a million vehicles annually. The first customer deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 will doubtless gain far more attention than the first deliveries of Chevrolet Bolt EVs got seven months ago.

Musk said around 500,000 people worldwide have already put down a $1,000 (£760) deposit to reserve a Model 3. We expect United Kingdom cars to cost in the region of £35,000 - although this assumes the United Kingdom government will continue to offer a grant for private buyers of electric cars.

Limits on the $7,500 USA tax credit for electric cars could also hurt demand.

If you're wondering why Tesla staff get the Model 3 first, it's because this is the easiest way to test any issues that come up with the first batch and fix them quickly.

Common touch: Tesla is trying to build vehicles in high volume for customers able to pay only a few thousand dollars more than the average price of a conventional auto.

It's finally official: the Tesla Model 3 will feature two battery options, one with 220 miles of range and a second with 310 miles of range. The pricier version will be capable of about 500 kilometres of driving between charges. The company is also giving out NFC-enabled plastic cards to consumers so that they can unlock and start the vehicle with a single tap. Those additional features include self-driving hardware and enhanced autopilot software.

For Tesla, everything is riding on the Model 3.

But many observers say that air of exclusivity, paired with Tesla's futuristic branding, is exactly its appeal. The steering wheel felt nice and chunky in our hands, but more than anything the view out the front proved expansive thanks to the 3's ultra low dashboard. Toyota Motor Corp. made more than 10 million vehicles past year.
