Tesla begins taking orders for Model 3 with no reservations required

No reservations are needed for US and Canada consumers who are looking to get their hands on one of Tesla Inc’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) electric vehicles, as per a CNBC report.

The automaker is now taking orders for its Model 3s via its website.

Previously, aspiring Tesla owners had to put down a US$1,000 deposit for a spot in line, a way for the company to gauge interest in the vehicles as well as raise capital.

Now customers with or without reservations only need to pay the standard US$2,500 deposit toward the total cost of the car at the time they make the reservation.

Tesla issues customers a vehicle identification number within a few days of the order, giving reservation holders first priority. The deposit then becomes nonrefundable.

Shares of the California-based company were down around 1% to US$318.38 in Wednesday morning trading
