The new model of an electric car Tesla will cost 35 thousand dollars

    The other day, Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla Motors, revealed some details of the next generation of Tesla electric vehicles, which are due to appear in 2017. This car will be called Tesla Model 3, the price of the car will be 35 thousand US dollars (30 thousand pounds for the UK).

    An interesting story is connected with the name of the car: the new electric car was to be called the Tesla Model E, but Ford intervened in the matter. It turns out that this company even sued Tesla Motors, which it won, having received the right to the name “Model E”.

    Be that as it may, the point here is not the name. The third generation of the car will be presented in 2016, and will go on sale in 2017. Most likely, the car will be created from scratch, and not based on the modified Model S and Model X platform.

    Thanks to the size reduced by 30%, the mass is reduced accordingly. It turns out that the car will consume less energy, which means that the battery will last for longer than before. According to Elon Musk, the guaranteed distance is 360 kilometers (200 miles (which can be overcome with maximum performance (that is, without much energy savings).

    Musk also talked about working on a new battery for the Tesla Roadster, so the distance that you can go on one battery charge will increase to 640 kilometers (roughly the distance from Los Angeles to San Francisco).
