Approximately 115,000 Model 3 cars have been pre-ordered, with customers paying £1000 deposit ahead of its launch and deliveries are scheduled to start at the end of 2017. 

Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, said the car should feel more spacious to passengers than similar-sized petrol based cars because of design decisions Tesla could make by not using a combustion engine.
