America’s Next Top Model?

Business Insider is reporting that electric car company Tesla, led by innovator Elon Musk, will be making the Model 3 that will be built by year-end 2017 (or possibly the beginning of 2018) and will not exceed the $35,000 mark.

$35,000 is an expensive price tag, but it’s at least within range and consideration of people who buy luxury SUV’s and luxury sedans and the Toyota Avalon. Business Insider also reported that applicable tax breaks and incentives could spark a price plummet of nearly $10,000.

People will be able to invest in a car and a renewable future.

The Model 3 will shine its lights on March 31, 2016: Plug it into your calendars.
