Tesla aims to build 500,000 cars annually, which is why the success of Model 3 is very crucial for the company. However, their aim of penetrating the totality of the car industry may be thwarted with the reported affiliation of Tesla co-founder Elon Musk to the newly-sworn President Donald Trump, according to CNBC.

As an effect of President Trump asking Musk to be part of his administration's Strategic & Policy Forum and a manufacturing council, some individuals who have already placed an order for the upcoming Model 3 from Tesla have withdrawn their previous transactions. Apart from pre-order withdrawal, criticisms and commentaries online likewise proliferated.

Some known personalities like technologist and blogger, Tom Coates, reacted to the idea of Musk working with President Donald Trump. Coates advised Musk to be very careful since he is in between "moderating horrific behavior and defending it."

Under such circumstances, there is still no exact count on how many customers have cancelled Model 3 reservations. It can be remembered that back in August 2016 there were an estimated 400,000 individuals who had placed a refundable $1,000 deposit, despite not having any glimpse of the actual Model 3.

In spite of the negative publicity and the implications of Musk-Trump connection, Tesla is still positive about the potential outcome of their upcoming release Tesla Model 3. Coming in with a $35,000 price before incentive, Model 3 hopes to bring electric cars to every household with its affordability and great performance.

Moreover, although there is still no news for the exact release of Model 3, most fans remain excited of the Model 3s latest leaked specification. An anonymous tipster recently shared how the Model 3's HVAC system will work.

"The A/C system uses the entire width of the dash to blow air from a centrally mounted fan," The tipster told Jalopnik.
