Slated to launch in July 2018, the Tesla Model 3 dual motor performance version is priced at $ 78,000 ( ₹ 53.02 lakh). While earlier reports suggested that the Model 3 dual motor performance version will begin its production in July, Elon Musk, CEO, Tesla tweeted out the first image of the new car from its new production line created at the Tesla plant in Freemont, California.
