Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk unveiled the much-anticipated Model 3 Thursday night in Los Angeles.
With an expected base price of $35,00, people have been lining up outside of Tesla offices the last couple days to reserve their very own Model 3 for $1,000.
Earlier today, Musk tweeted out some insane sales numbers from the launch of the Model 3. The car had 180,000 orders in 24 hours, which made Tesla $7.5 billion in one day.
Model 3 orders at 180,000 in 24 hours. Selling price w avg option mix prob $42k, so ~$7.5B in a day. Future of electric cars looking bright!

What’s crazy is that anyone who made a reservation will have to wait until late 2017 to have their new Tesla Model 3 delivered.
Tesla shares have also risen 5.2% since Friday morning. With that being said, it looks like Elon Musk is currently killing it.
