When enough people have electric cars the government will whack a great big tax on the power to bring it closer to petrol prices. Enjoy it for now as it seems the few people with them are being subsidised but it will not last.
That's a very valid point. Currently fuel taxes earn £27bn each year for the government, not including VAT on fuel. That hole will have to be plugged somehow.
I was just behind one of these in Norwich. I was wondering what it was. Looks good from behind
Our electric car makes a noise through a speaker.

The cars will be supercharging enabled but may well not include the electricity unless you pay a subscription.

UK deliveries are not realistically expected until late 2019 at the earliest.

I had a ride in a P90D recently, although I think it was only set up for 0-60 in 3.1 seconds... While I admire it, and like the idea of having one. I think its quite dangerous in the sense that its both abnormally fast and quiet - only a fast motorbike could beat that acceleration, and that would be very noisy while doing it. Couple to that, they are nice looking cars, but quite bland - at a casual glance you'd think it was a Mondeo or a Mazda.
Still, I am sure electric cars will become a major proportion of all new cars sold in a decade or so - they will only get cheaper and more practical.
I agree that electric cars are dangerous as they are so quiet. What happens to "stop,look and listen" ?
I imagine the ubiquitous wearing of headphones has beaten electric cars to it to be honest. If not then I doubt it would be hard to make them noisy if it was shown to be a problem.

So your reservation determines your order priority, which determines when you get the car. So given I ordered mine 8.40am before the unveil, I must surely be about the first able to order in the UK (current owners aside as well as Tesla employees). I'm not expecting to get it until mid 2018 at the earliest - what do you think?

Sounds like you will be in the first batch invited to order - after UK employees and UK owners - lucky you!
We were going to, but for some reason held off... no idea why!

A couple more things to look at;

Hi, Gavin - I think you hit the nail on the head.
On the Tesla site it says - "You'll be invited to configure based on the date of your reservation"
But they do not say what date range will be used when inviting... all I can say is, get your order in as quickly as you can once you get an invite.

Reserved mine 8.40 am first morning on day of launch but before it launched that evening. Leeds store had only opened day before and they opened early. No one seemed to know the store was there. Reckon I was in first 10 in the country to order. Question may be whether to keep or flog on for hefty profit when delivery comes. Glad I made the move as hundreds of thousands of orders went in after.
Very well done to you - thought I have just had confirmation that it does not matter what reservation position you have - what will count is when you place you order. ANYONE with a reservation will be placed before those who do not, and people with an S or X will be placed before reservation only holders... so when the order site opens, whoever gets on there first will get delivery first, as long as they are not pushed out by a current Tesla owner.
Is that correct - Musk said if you reserve now it will be 2019? Also Tesla actually said you would get them in order (yes pre existing owners get priority) https://electrek.co/2016/06/07/tesla-model-3-reservation-queue-number/

All your reservation place means is where you are in the queue to order your car. Once you have ordered that will be the delivery queue.
Say you are right hand drive reservation number 55. They open the order configuration tool for numbers 1-250. You then sit there all month and don't order a car. The people who had a reservation number after you (56-250) but ordered the car are now ahead of you in the queue. So as soon as you can order the car the best to do so.

I think this is far more of an issue in North America than is will be in the UK.
