Century City, Calif. — On Friday, the Model 3 appeared at the Tesla showroom in Century City Los Angeles to the inquisitive group.
The Model 3, as of Friday, is being appeared at just two retail stores across the country, the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto and Century City shopping center in Los Angeles.
Friday night, I ceased by the Century City showroom, which is situated close to the Apple Store and Amazon Store (otherwise known as, Amazon Books) in the shopping center. Both of those stores pull in a considerable measure clients yet both could not hope to compare to what I saw at the Tesla showroom Friday night. (See recordings at the base.)
There was a long queue holding up to get inside the vehicle. Truth be told, it helped me to remember the line that shaped in November at the Century City Apple Store (where I sat tight obediently in line for the iPhone X). Perhaps not exactly as long but rather the Model 3 surely created an indistinguishable kind uproar from the iPhone X.
The config in plain view was the $49,000 Model 3 with 310 miles of range, raise wheel drive, and premium updates all through, including Autopilot.
I saw that individuals were continually jabbing and nudging the vehicle, which had the Tesla individuals anxious. Also, they needed to nearly screen the vehicle to ensure no one broke anything. One of the Tesla folks remarked to me, “Catastrophe of the Commons.”
I’ve likewise started to see Model 3s out of the blue (for me, at any rate) in the wild in northwest Los Angeles, a hotbed for EVs. On Wednesday night, I saw a Model 3 getting charged at a Whole Foods in Sherman Oaks out of the blue. I expect (and trust) to see this happen all the more frequently in the coming months.
What’s more, take note of that no test drives are being offered as of now at the Century City store – or anyplace so far as that is concerned.
