Lookin’ swell in blue! And running away from a Tesla Model S too.
One of the two Tesla Model 3 prototypes that our spy photographer snapped photos of a couple of days ago is back in a short video, showing it in action out on the highway. Via the OMG_Tesla folks on YouTube, we see this blue Model 3 testing on Interstate 280. It’s being followed by a Tesla Model S P90D. This quick video actually provides us with a fairly decent look at the size differences between the two vehicles.
Well, it's basically pointless to discuss the design of the car, as we’ve been on this topic many times. Thankfully, not much has been changed from the transition from a concept to a production model, except for some minor details at the front. Also, now there’s an array of new cameras and radars, which will be used by the arsenal of autonomous, safety, and assist technologies.
And, if you’ve been wondering if you should take the Model 3 instead of the Chevrolet Bolt, and if you ask Elon Musk, you’ll be answered that the top version of Tesla’s most affordable vehicle will have a 75-kWh battery pack, which will provide an electric range of more than 240 miles at a single charge.
The Model 3 will finally enter the production phase in July this year, or at least this is what we all hope for. Volume deliveries are scheduled for September. Look for full pricing details in early June, most likely on or around June 2.
You’ll find more images of the pre-production Tesla Model 3 in both black and blue, as well as some interior shots, here at this link to our spy photos of Tesla’s newest creation.
