The Tesla Model 3 will make its European debut at Goodwood, and the company will commence production of its right-hand-drive line in a year.
The US-spec version will be on display at Duke of Richmond's front lawn as a static display. In the UK, the Model 3 will compete with the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and Mercedes-Benz C-class. The Model 3 will be on sale with a 50kWh or 75kWh batteries. The 50kWh Model 3 has a claimed range of 354km and the 75kWh Long Range variant has a claimed range of 499km on a single charge.
A Performance variant is due later, but Musk said the company’s more powerful 100kWh battery will not fit into the Model 3's smaller frame. The US-spec Model 3 hit a production milestone of 5,000 cars a week in the last week of June, which just met Tesla's self-set deadline for the end of Q2 2018.
