Tesla Model 3 – level 2
Tesla, a company which makes electric cars, unveiled its first affordable car. It calls it the Tesla Model 3 and it will cost you 35,000 US dollars.
Even before knowing what the car looked like, many people waited in lines to put down a 1,000-dollar deposit on the car. However, even if you reserved the car, you have to wait until late 2017.
Tesla plans on making 500,000 cars a year. Last year, it managed to produced just over 50,000.
The car will go at least 350 kilometres per charge, and the base model will do 0 to 96 kilometres per hour in less than six seconds. Other models will be able to go faster.
Difficult words: unveil (show people for the first time), deposit (some money which you pay to reserve something), base (the least expensive version).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
