First Posted: May 04, 2016 05:30 AM EDT

Elon Musk, the Tesla boss, confirmed that the Tesla Model 3, which is the most affordable electric car as of today will have a ludicrous mode. This would make the Tesla fans pretty excited.

This mode permits the Model S to speed up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds. The Tesla Model X, which also features ludicrous mode, can hit 60 miles per hour in only 3.2 seconds, according to Tech Times. On the other hand, it is not clear yet if the ludicrous mode of Tesla Model 3 will accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds.

The Tesla Model 3 comes with a rear-drive version that has an estimated range of 215 miles and a 0-60 time of fewer than 6 seconds. It has a bigger battery and all-wheel-drive that would likely have a range of 300 miles. The interior of Tesla Model 3 comes with a 15-inch display for vehicle's controls and data, according to Car and Driver. Its interior is airy and spacious. The Model 3 rear window encompasses right up to the B-pillars, where it is convened by a big sunroof that expands over the front seats for an all-glass canopy look. It will also come up with Tesla's Autopilot as standard. Many people are excited about the new model. There were almost 400,000 people who showed interest in having a Model 3 by putting a deposit after the Tesla event in Los Angeles in March.

The Tesla Model 3 costs about $35,000, according to Mr. Musk. The sales of Tesla Model 3 begin in late 2017. The deliveries will begin in California and will expand the sales in the east as its production surges.
