PALO ALTO, California — The 2018 Tesla Model 3 mainstream electric sedan will feature "ludicrous mode," an upgrade that is designed to appeal to performance-minded car shoppers.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed the availability of ludicrous mode on the Model 3 in a tweet on Saturday.
"Of course," Musk replied.
Pricing has not been announced for the option on the Model 3, but it is a $10,000 item on the other Tesla vehicles.
In other Model 3 developments, Musk also said that duplicate orders for the car will be canceled.
"Max of 2 will be delivered to any one person," he tweeted.
The rule is intended to prevent speculators from snapping up multiple vehicles.
Reservations for the Model 3 are said to be approaching 400,000.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers making long-range plans for the highly anticipated Model 3 have another extra-cost item to consider, one that will give the car an expected 10 percent improvement in acceleration over the standard setup.
