    does the Tesla Model 3 have a hatchback?

  2. Nathanael says:

    Test drives will not be available for a few months since Tesla has a very very long pre-order reservation list, and they want to deliver cars to those people before sending cars to stores. After they’ve gotten through some of that list, test drives will be available at any Tesla store. Probably in a couple of months.

    Yes, California has a rebate program — the current California rebates are listed on this website.
