The Tesla Model 3 is more than just an electric car - it is a pivotal point in the history of cars. An affordable electric car that has some of the most advanced technologies, including Tesla’s ‘Autopilot’, was in the works for multiple years now, and tomorrow will be the day Tesla can officially show off their car.
Last week, Tesla completed production of its first Model 3. Tomorrow, it will be delivered to the first customers - employees of SpaceX and Tesla, who will be testing the car for bugs before shipping it to the public.
The Model 3 is essentially the final step in Elon Musk’s Master Plan in making the electric car for everyone a reality. However, this will be far from the last car we will see from Tesla. In the coming months, Tesla could reveal an electric pick-up as well as a full sized electric truck. With Musk’s ever-growing popularity and majorly positive reviews about Tesla, the company will hope to become a big player in the automobile market in the near future.
That said, you can watch tomorrow’s event live on Tesla’s website.

Tesla has already set a high standard for electric cars, but companies like Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are all working on their offerings. At Shanghai Auto Show this year, Audi announced the e-tron Sportback concept - an all-electric car with a futuristic look that will go into production in 2019.
NextEV, a Chinese startup, first debut the NIO brand last year when they announced the most powerful electric supercar, the EV9. Now, the SXSW 2107 in Austin, Texas, the company unveiled its Eve concept. Eve should debut in 2020 as a luxury vehicle in the US market.
Right away, you notice the futuristic looks of this car, but it isn’t anything surprisingly new. Faraday Future’s FF91, BMW’s i8 and (another Silicon Valley startup) Lucid’s Air carry a similar design. Eve is designed to maximize comfort; it is aimed at the commuters of 2020 who want complete autonomy of their car while being able to relax or work on the road.
