And if sales meet the company’s hopes, it will finally set the chronically money-losing Tesla on the path to becoming a sustainable business that justifies, at least in part, its heady stock market valuation…[W]ould-be customers have put down deposits on more than 400,000 Model 3s…which will cost from $35,000…[C]ustomers lining up outside Tesla showrooms to register their interest drew comparisons with the rush to buy the iPhone…Boosted by its new, lower-priced model, Tesla hopes to produce 500,000 vehicles next year, before reaching a target of 1m in 2020 — almost as many as the total number of electric vehicles sold worldwide as recently as 2015…” click here for more
