These ratings apply only to the long-range Model 3 that has a base price of $44,000. Lower-end Model 3s that start at $35,000 — and which won't be in production until well into 2018 — have a promised range of 220 miles. And even the long-range Model 3 that's being produced now is rolling out in extremely limited numbers. As of today, Tesla is thought to be building about three Model 3s per day, which is well shy of initial projections. Tesla says it should be producing 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of March 2018.
