Tesla will build a cheaper EV for 2016


Tesla Motors entrepreneur Elon Musk has offered new information on the plan he has on the automotive venture during the annual shareholder meeting of Tesla Motors on Tuesday. He offered us more details that have been revealed so far. Maybe one of the most important things of them all was the confirmation of a smaller-powered model, which specialists know it as Gen III. Different sources indicate the fact that this new model will be available starting with 2016. Actually this is what we can call the third vehicle or the smaller version of the Model S in a lot of ways. When it comes to the price, the new model is expected to come at half the price, but of course, nothing is for sure, yet.



We all know the base price of the Model S has been established at $62.400 including the $7.500 Federal Tax Credit. Now, the Gen III sedan is expected to come at a starting price of $30.000 to $35.000 with the tax credits. We will have to wait a bit to find out the real thing. According to Tesla, the company is now already talking about a new model, the Model X. So that you know, this new vehicle has as base the Model S and it is an all-electric crossover with seating for seven people. The man also said that because the battery is in the floor pan, the model should have the lowest center of gravity of any SUV as a result. This is perfect in terms of handling. This is what Elon Musk declared and it was not all. According to him, the specialists want something that has the handling of a sports car, one that looks good, but also that has more functionality in comparison to a regular minivan. It seems that this is what the carmaker is hoping for. They want to offer customers the cars in they hands by the end of 2014. The Chinese customer might also receive a special version developed for them of the Model S, in 2014.
