Now if you have never heard of Tesla, and you are an American, that is quite a shame considering it is one of few American car manufacturers that has a bright future. Perhaps one of the brightest. Tesla Motors won a huge amount of attention with their first production model, the Tesla Roadster Sport, that has a range of over 200 miles on a single charge.Unlike a Prius, Tesla combines electric engine with sport performance and an overall luxurious experience. Then came along the sporty sedan called the Model S, which has 416 hp and a 0-60 of just 4.2 seconds (did I forget to mention there is no gas in the vehicle at all). The Model S outsold every single car manufacturer in its class by a landslide. Tesla Model S (18,000), Mercedes Benz S-Class (13,303), BMW 7 Series (10,932) and Lexus LS (10,727). And it’s quite affordable in comparison to its competitors starting at just $68,070.
Tesla Motors plan to build an all-electric full-size crossover utility vehicle called the Model X and deliveries are planned to begin in 2015. Since Tesla practically has nothing else to do, they confirmed plans to build the Model III. Originally planned to called the Model E (but Ford decided to sue), Tesla strangely named the vehicle Model III, perhaps already a shot at the BMW 3 Series?
The Model III will be 20% smaller than the Model S but will have a range of over 200 miles and strong performance according to Tesla’s co-founder Elon Musk. And not to mention that the Model III will begin at only $35,000 dollars.
