The electric "mass market" vehicle is slated to be available to the public later this month. But only 30 vehicles will reportedly be produced by the end of the month. By December, however, that figure is slated to increased to 20,000 a month.

Priced around $35,000 -- with a $7,500 federal electric car credit -- the five-seat Model 3 is a cheaper and more consumer-friendly version of the luxury Model S.
