SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Hundreds of people waited in line for hours to buy a car they've never seen: the Tesla Model 3. 

Thursday the company started taking preorders for the new car.

What's so special about this model? The cost. The starting price, before government incentives, is $35,000 — half the cost of other Tesla base models.

What do we know about it? Not much. But the car can go at least 200 miles on a full charge.

The Tesla Model 3 was unveiled Thursday night in Los Angeles. Production is set to begin in late 2017.
