Tesla rolls out its first production Model 3

Graphic News

July 28, 2017 -- The first 30 production versions of Tesla’s Model 3 all-electric sedan will be handed over on July 28. Tesla plans to build 20,000 cars a month by December and 100,000 a month by the end of 2018.

Tesla, the electric vehicle manufacturer, led by Elon Musk, set a new record in the first quarter of 2017 by delivering 25,000 vehicles and bringing the cumulative total since the 2008 launch of the Tesla Roadster to 211,000 cars.

The 14-year-old company is now worth more than 113-year-old Ford, with a market capitalisation of $47 billion compared to Ford’s $45 billion.

If Tesla achieves Musk’s targets of 20,000 cars a month by December and then ramping up to 25,000 a week, it will build more battery-powered cars next year than all of the world’s automakers combined in 2016.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
