The big unveiling of the highly anticipated Model 3 is almost here. The list from all over the world is long. The same can be said of the lines outside Tesla stores all over the world. And as the world waits to put down $1,500 for Tesla’s Model 3, it seems some of the car specifications has just been leaked.
It’s an electric car that’s expected to be different from any other that has ever been produced by Tesla before. For one thing, the company aims to make the car’s final price somewhere around $30,000, making the Model 3 the most affordable Tesla car yet. The thing is though, it seems that Tesla had decided to create more than one model of Model 3.
According to a report from electrek, Tesla had reportedly worked on various versions of the Model 3. And for the upcoming unveiling, the company plans to show off a model of the said car with a low drag design. Tesla has also made it clear early on that only one version will be revealed during the unveiling.
Aside from this, Tesla fans can also expect to see a Model 3 that is smaller than the Model X or S, but a taller sedan. During the IHS Energy CERAWeek in Houston earlier this year, Tesla co-founder and Chief Technology Officer JB Straubel also told FuelFix that the upcoming Model 3 will be around the size of an Audi A4. What was most interesting back then (and is still very interesting now), however, Straubel’s hint that the car “will surprise people with the level of features it includes.”
As far as features go, a recent report from Bloomberg revealed that the Model 3 may have a driving feature called the “summon mode.” Using the mode, a driver can summon the Model 3 to travel at low speed from the parking lot to the driver for a quick pick up. Moreover, analyst Sam Jaffe from Cairn Energy Research Advisors also said that he predicts the Model 3 to have a 65-kilowatt-hour battery pack as well as a range per charge of approximately 225 miles.
With all the rumors surrounding the Model 3, one thing is certain. This car is poised to become a game changer in the world of electric and autonomous vehicles.
