With the Model 3, with which Tesla targeted the mass market of global car buyers, a still ongoing success story began. Around two million Model 3s have found a new owner so far. Tesla has established itself as a brand. Elon Musk is the face to the brand. Six years after the first version, the new Model 3 offers several innovations with its upgrade, promising more refinement and comfort.
