New Tool Estimates Delivery Time For Tesla Vehicles
Elon Musk and his Tesla Motors are certainly in and out of the news for their groundbreaking technology. The company’s new Model 3 is one that is modestly priced and is aimed at being affordable by the regular middle class family. The Model 3 seen its release back in July and now there is a new tool that can calculate the delivery time of the vehicle to a prospective buyer.
The new tool is called the Sullins Model 3 Delivery Estimator. The tool was developed by data scientist and huge Tesla technology buff in Ben Sullins. The tool works by taking the data that is provided from four questions. Those questions are: when was the date that the Tesla Model 3 was reserved, if the person is a current or past customer of Tesla, the level of the Tesla Model 3 that was requested, and finally the location in which the requested model is to be delivered to.
Buyers who wanted to get into the pre-release stage of the Tesla Model 3 were required to put down a $1,000 up front payment. Numbers show that there was approximately 40,000 people who done just that at the start. Numbers show that there has been a total of around 325,000 reservations in all for the Model 3. It was right before the official release date that Musk announced that the Tesla Model 3 has passed all the regulatory inspections and that the automobile was ready to hit the road.
The Tesla Model 3 is an all electric mid-sized family sedan and is a project that was started by Tesla engineers back in 2007. Company targets show that the company projects that they will be making around 5,000 Model 3’s a week beginning in March of 2018.
