UK customers who have purchased a Tesla Model 3 will soon get their hands on the car. Deliveries of the Model 3 car set to begin as versions of the car have been spotted being transported on British motorways. The first batch has been shipped from the Dover/Folkestone port and is set to be delivered to London. Initial deliveries of the car are scheduled to take place this week.
A photo of the transporter carrying the red Model 3s was shared over the weekend on Twitter by user R Symons LTD.
Another transporter carrying black and blue Model 3s was also snapped on the motorway.
The Tesla Model 3 was first revealed in 2016 and took close to half a million reservations within a few months.
Cars started to be delivered to customers in the US in July 2018 but UK customers ahem had to wait almost year longer to receive theirs.
There are two variants motorists can specify in the UK – The Standard Plus or Performance.
The Standard Plus car comes with 258-miles of estimated WLTP range and a 0-60 mph sprint time of 5.3 seconds and 140mph top speed.
The Performance variant comes with 329-miles of WLPT range and a 0-60mph time of 3.2 seconds and a 162mph top speed.
This car is also All-Wheel Drive and comes with a Premium Interior package.
Tesla has seemingly removed the Long Range rear-wheel drive variant from the order books.
There are there for just the two variants to choose from costing £38,050 (SRP) and £48,590 (P) before options are added.
Earlier this year the car was crowned the all-time best-selling plug-in electric car in the U.S, overtaking the Chevrolet Volt.
It costs around £38,000 to buy and is available in a number of range and power options.
