Musk starred in a ceremony at the plant delivering the first batch to their owners.
The most energy-efficient auto in the USA starting in 2014 was the BMW i3 battery-electric hatchback with the original battery, which gave it a range of 81 miles.
Tesla finally delivered the first 30 units of the Model 3 this past evening, and now that the production version of the company's mass-market electric auto is out in the wild, one key detail has finally been confirmed: the interior is going to look unlike anything else on the market.
A team of Italian Tesla owners have established a new "hypermilling" record, driving a Model S 100D 1078 kilometers (about 670 miles) on a single charge. Musk has mentioned in Tesla earnings calls that while early models were packed with innovative engineering, they caused vexation on the assembly line.
Tesla Says Model 3 Deliveries To Hit 10000/week. However, it is overmatched by the Model 3 in speed and acceleration. According to the EPA, in the USA it costs $9000 ($A11,500) more.

Previous pricing for the Model X 75D was $82,500, compared to $74,500 for the Model S 75D. While the long range Model 3 with premium features has already started shipping, the base $35,000 isn't due until later this year.
The pricing of the Model 3 is a clear sign Tesla has designed this product for mass market appeal. So far, Musk's strategy has paid off.
Even if Tesla finds itself under "severe financial or operating stress", the company's "brand name, production facilities, and product lineup would have considerable value to another automotive OEM or technology firm targeting the electric vehicle and mobility markets".
While it might seem like a drastic change, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has previously told customers they "won't care" there is no traditional dashboard.
Swedish auto maker Volvo has revealed it will adopt an electrification strategy for all new models from 2019.
