Interested in a Tesla Model 3? You’ll have to wait. Company founder and CEO Elon Musk revealed via Twitter there was going to be a two-year wait for the $35,000 sedan, but pre-orders begin when it’s finally unveiled in March.
To be accurate, Musk says production on the Model 3 will take place in “about” two years. The sticking point seems to be Tesla’s Gigafactories, which need to be fully operational before Model 3s can start rolling off the production line.
Model 3, our smaller and lower cost sedan will start production in about 2 years. Fully operational Gigafactory needed.

But Musk is promising the Model 3 will be unveiled in March, and pricing will start at $35,000 (which Musk alluded to before). If you’re willing to wait for delivery, you can also pre-order a Model 3 early next year.
Between the populrity of Tesla and our desire for an affordable all-electric car, the Model 3 should sell quickly.
