Tesla de­liv­ers first low-cost Model 3 cars

has fi­nally made its long-promised af­ford­able elec­tric car. But it could take years to get it to all the peo­ple who want to buy it.

Tesla de­liv­ered the Model 3 small car to its first 30 cus­tomers — all em­ploy­ees — at a com­pany party Fri­day night. Chief ex­ec­u­tive Elon Musk said Tesla will build the cars as fast as it can, but ac­knowl­edged that sup­ply is­sues and other com­plex­i­ties will make it tough to reach his goal of mak­ing 500,000 cars next year.

With its $35,000 start­ing price — half the cost of Tesla’s pre­vi­ous mod­els — and range of up to 310 miles, the Model 3 could bring hun­dreds of thou­sands of cus­tomers into the au­tomaker’s fold, tak­ing it from a niche lux­ury brand to the main­stream.
