    The Gigafactory has been active for a while making the Powerwall Tecnology. They won't be moving the production of the car batteries to the Gigafacrory for white. The model 3 will use a different form factor and Tecnology for batteries which won't happen for a while.

    5 stars safety in every category - This is not surprising.

    0-60mph in less than 6 seconds - This makes perfect sense.

    some versions will be faster - Performance and dual motors will get better 0-60 just like S and X.

    215 miles/charge, with possibility to be exceeded - I'll bet these cars have Model S/X batteries in them. Until they have a final design filled with official Model 3 batteries in them they can only speculate. I'd bet on this they are being very conservative.

    standard autopilot hardware (didn't talk about software) - Yeah. For safety it's included. Autopilot features will probably cost extra.

    fits 5 adults comfortably (emphasises on the confortably) - This is not surprising. It's an EV using a skateboard battery pack.

    best roomyness in its class - Yes. Go Tesla.

    supercharging standard (the screen said supercharging capability) - The implication was that it was included and free.

    frunk+trunk - No surprise there.

    double superchargers to 7200 in the end of 2017 - Moving right along. The technology has been improved and will probably improve even more.

    quadruple destination chargers to 15000 in the end of 2017 - Fantastic.

    441 tesla service center in the end of 2017 - Needed for any issues with S 3 X and to maintain their spectacular service record.

    gigafactory operational as of today - Sure is. I'm not sure if they're producing any Model 3 batteries there yet. That battery is just as important as the car, maybe more so.

    delivery at the end of next year - Tesla and Elon are trying very hard to stick to this timetable. They will come close, no matter what.

    35 000 USD - It will be a compelling car without any extras. With the extras, I'm sure it will be spectacular.

    Best car even with no options - I would not be surprised.

    115 000 reservations! In past 24h - 500K by the end of this year is not too unreasonable.
