The Model 3 is the first mass-market vehicle of the electric car making company.

The first 30 reservation holders of the car will receive their vehicles on 28 July.

Tesla has received nearly $500 million in Model 3 deposits ($1,000 per car) so far.

The price of the four-door sedan is reportedly half of the company's next "cheapest" vehicle.

OwnerFirst owner of the new Tesla car

The first Model 3 has come into the possession of its owner and it's none other than Elon Musk.

The first person who pays full price will get the first edition of any new Tesla car.

But Musk got the new vehicle because the first pre-order customer and Tesla board member, Ira Ehrenpreis, gave his place to Musk as his 46th birthday gift.

ProductionModel 3 reservations continue to rise but production slow

Tesla already holds over 500,000 reservations for Model 3, unveiled in Mar'16, but the production would initially be slow.

After 28 July, Tesla would make 100 cars by August and another 1,500 by September.

Tesla plans to reach a production rate of 20,000 cars per month by December-end; it wants to double the rate next year and then quintuple by 2018-end.

Model 3, designed to seat five persons, is made of cheaper steel and lightweight aluminum.

Right from the car's speed to navigation, everything can be controlled from a 15-inch touchscreen display.

Detailed specs and features would be unveiled at the launch event on 28 July.
