The long-awaited first Tesla Model 3 electric car for the public is finally rolling off the assembly line pending a "final checkout".

"Production Unit 1 of Model 3 is now built and going through final checkout," Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Saturday and unveiled the pictures of an actual Model 3.

Tesla has been working on a limited production run of the Model 3 electric car. The first 30 new cars is expected to be delivered to customers on July 28.

In several Twitter posts on Monday, Musk said the California-based company will produce 100 cars in August and more than 1,500 in September.

It looks like "we can reach 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in December," Musk said.

Model 3 is a major step for the company, and will be priced around 35,000 U.S. dollars each. It "achieves 215 miles (346 km) of range per charge" and is "designed to attain the highest safety ratings in every category."
