Presentation of the new Tesla electric car will be held on October 9
Yesterday, the head of Tesla Motors Elon Musk wrote on his Twitter about an important event in the life of the company: the presentation of a new electric car model. Unfortunately, details were not indicated - it is not even known which model will be shown.
Most likely, there will be a presentation of Model D - a model that can be considered the heiress to the most popular version of the Tesla electric car, Model S. In addition, Elon Musk announced his intention to show “something else” - and this “something” is unknown nothing.
It may well be that it will be told about the new factory of batteries for Tesla cars - about which more than once they wrote on Habré. Earlier it was reported that the factory will be built in Nevada. Another hunch - the Driver Assist system will be shown - this is a new automatic car control system. Tesla previously said that the company is working on a reliable system for automatic control of cars, and before the appearance of serial robots of cars there are still 5-6 years .
Among other things, the company announced plans to produce a compact electric sedan called Model III. The dimensions of the Model III should be 20% smaller than the Model S, and the battery charge should be enough for 320 kilometers. The price of the car will be 35 thousand US dollars (30 thousand pounds for the UK). Model III, as far as we know, will not have an aluminum platform, like the Model S, plus new generation batteries will be installed. Just such batteries will be produced at the new Tesla factory.
