The model 3, Tesla most affordable vehicle, will be available in Australia from August and you can configure and order it online.

Tesla says buyers who paid a $1,500 deposit more than 3 years ago will get first priority.

Prices start at $66,000 plus on roads which is on par with the new Hyundai Kona Electric SUV and a base, petrol engine BMW 3 Series or Mercedes C-Class.

The performance version which costs $85,000 plus on roads has a range of 560km and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds.
