So it was a busy after-easter-weekend-week with one really unique thing happening: we now have car-commerce! The presentation of the Tesla Model 3 came with the option to reserve it right away for just $1.000 bucks (look here: https://www.teslamotors.com/). Within the first 40 minutes the reservations were over 150.000 – and they shut down the counter. Hmm, nice start – $150.000.000 in 40 minutes, if this isn’t commerce… If you want to get a nice coverage with pictures, you can find it here at TechCrunch: http://goo.gl/4zZ4ah.
So have a nice weekend and be careful to be tempted… it’s just the reservation, the car itself will start at $35.000 and delivery will only start beginning of 2017 :-)
