Model 3 “unicorn” electric vehicles enter Fremantle port in a tidal wave

Tesla’s predicted “Tesla tidal wave” is being realized in Western Australia, where hundreds of “unicorn” Model 3s were caught parked at Fremantle Port.

Tesla shipping tracker @Vedaprime on Twitter first pointed out the arrival of the Model 3s, explaining that “Tesla Perth will use the largest volume delivery space.”

The production of Tesla electric cars is expected to reach Australia more than it has in all the preceding years combined by the end of 2021.

Approximately 800 of the products are expected to be delivered to Western Australia customers this quarter from a new warehouse approximately three kilometers from the company’s new facility.

ToCWA secretary Harald Murphy wrote to Driven that the King Edward Road service delivery center provides Tesla customers with smooth and efficient service without problems.

It is not immediately apparent the magnitude of what is about to happen at first. Even though 461 posts seems like a lot of traffic, the number is being hidden over and over again.

“In 2017, when there were only 100 Teslas in WA, a single shipment of over 460 cars was considered absurd. Now, no one is laughing. It is amazing how much the human need has grown.

TOCWA posted a video of a drone flying over the Fremantle docks on Saturday, demonstrating all 461 of the vehicles at the docks (see end of article).

According to Vedaprime, Tesla is sending a large number of Model 3s to Washington, and it is not the last. But more importantly, all the cars in this shipment are the unicorn models, so named because both will have the actual speed of 2021 Model 3 but also a 2022 Model 3 as well.

Tesla began building a 62.3kWh battery in Shanghai in early November, providing a basic version of the electric sedan (no longer referred to as the Standard Range Plus) that is an additional 491km in range (compared to 448km in the real world, which is under WLTP).

Tesla’s 0-100 km/hr speed was reduced from 5.6 seconds to 6.1 seconds.

By 2021, the rest of the vehicles will have a longer range (approximately 444 kilometers, based on a New Zealand owner’s test), as well as faster acceleration.

Rob Dean, CEO of TOCWA, says that while Tesla has sold 461 Model 3s, it has done an amazing job, compared with the Japanese auto giant Toyota, despite the latter’s huge marketing budget.
