Intro

Tesla Inc. delivered the new electric Model 3 compact car to its first 30 customers — all employees — on Friday evening. The car starts at $35,000, which is half the cost of Tesla's previous models, so it has the potential to attract many more customers to the brand. Already, around 500,000 people worldwide have paid $1,000 to reserve a car, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says.

Here are some details about the Model 3.
