#Tesla has already given the #Model 3 electric car to some of its employees, and the stage is now set to release the cars to others. According to Daily Mail UK, nearly half a million people have booked the cars by paying an amount of $1,000 each, and #Elon Musk has indicated that an average of 1,800 new customers is getting added to the list every day.

In order to ensure that the interest of the customer is kept uppermost, Tesla has promised that those who opt for the high-end model would get an allotment on priority, and can expect to get their vehicles by the end of the year.

CEO Elon Musk has admitted that Tesla had missed its production target for the third quarter. The output was much less than the estimated output. Last month, the company had delivered 26,150 vehicles in the third quarter, which was a marginal increase compared to the same period of last year.

However, there were problems in the production lines that led to bottlenecks and a hampering of the smooth flow of work. In view of the situation, Tesla has redrawn its strategy and hopes to reach a production rate of 5,000 per month by the end of the first quarter of next year.

Electric cars to tackle global warming

Global warming is spelling doom for the world. It is attributed to CO2 emission. The carbon-dioxide gas is generated by the burning of fossil fuels. Therefore, to arrest the adverse effect of such emissions, it is necessary to find alternatives.

Of course, such a line of action has a direct effect on those who depend on this type of fuel for their livelihood. They have to change their thinking and acknowledge the fact that the greenhouse gas is harmful because it threatens the very survival of life on this planet.

Elon Musk has focused on this important aspect, and many of his programs are devoted to meeting the objective of arresting global warming. The electric car is one area he has targeted. Some countries have already laid out plans for phasing out vehicles that run on fossil fuels, and Tesla is ready to jump in with its Model 3.

Global warming is responsible for climate change and, while most of the world has realized its implications and have signed the 2015 Paris climate accord, the United States is still undecided. The day is not far off when electric cars will edge out conventional cars.
