Hardly any other electric car has been anticipated with so much excitement: Tesla Model 3 is possibly the definitive breakthrough of electric cars and a catalyst for the entire industry. The base model of the EV pioneer's family sedan aims to come in at under $US35,000 (possibly around $A55,000 in Australia), will have a 50kWh battery and a purported range of 350km. It is expected to arrive in Australia sometime after mid-2019 - make sure to return here as more details come to hand.
