Most Tesla Engineers Now Working On Model 3: Executive

Elon Musk has said that the Tesla Model 3 electric car will be shown to the public in March 2016.

Tesla Motors will begin taking orders for the car then, and production will start in 2017, the Tesla CEO has said.

That means that right about now, Tesla should be hard at work on its volume, 200-mile electric car.
