[Update April 7th] Elon Musk has just confirmed on Twitter that Tesla has already took over 325,000 orders for the Model 3 electric vehicle.

Elon says that this has resulted in around $14B in revenue for the company, which is huge for Tesla.

[Original Story] It was only three days ago when Tesla officially unveiled their new affordable electric vehicle, the Model 3, but in that time they have already achieved a massive amount of pre-orders, reaching a total of over 270,000 in just these three days.

This was documented by the CEO and co-founder of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, who has been updated his followers of the companies progress since launch.

Here’s that timeline:

This is quite a surprise to everyone, but clearly shows that consumers want this kind of product, so much so that they are willing to pre-order without even test driving the car.

That’s a huge commitment for anyone who is purchasing the $35,000 car, however, it does only require a $1,000 deposit to start off with, and you are able to cancel your reservation and receive a full refund.

With all these pre-orders, Tesla is looking at an income of around $276 million for just the deposits, so if all those translate into full orders, it could make the Model 3 their most successful launch ever.
