During the flight to Cape Canaveral to prepare for a rocket launch from SpaceX’s Elon musk got a little free time to answer questions on Twitter. The head of Tesla has posted a video first-in “release candidate” electric car Model 3, and shared information on the timing of release of new modifications of the model.

The title was a mistake

According to the entrepreneur, because the numbers in the title of Model 3 is often thought of as the next generation of Tesla by analogy with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7, although it is not. The electric car is a smaller and more affordable version of the Model S. Elon Musk has called himself a “stupid idiot” that did not foresee such a scenario. All the confusion arose from the fact that Ford have banned the company called the electric car Model E (below line of work “SEX”). The most obvious replacement for letters was three, but was not too successful. And Yes, the following should be Model Y — all will be “S3XY”. But looks like the Model 3 now:

So with the modifications?

All-wheel drive version with two engines will be released 6-9 months later, likely next year. Performance-the configuration will appear roughly a year (starting today), but the Model S it is not a competitor due to the lower capacity of the battery. At this moment the battery is not more than 75 kW·h. “right-hand” modification for the British release until the summer of 2018.

Elon Musk has hinted that the reserve Model 3 will outperform the Chevrolet Bolt, which can overcome on a single charge up to 383 miles. The most affordable Tesla will not be a dashboard in the display, but the head of the company believes that with the development of Autonomous systems number of displayed information can be reduced. The electric car will also be equipped with autopilot new generation (as usual, activation functions will have to pay).

Anything else?

Tweets Elon Musk announced that in the near future is not going to change the Model S, which will be the fastest Tesla to release new generation electric Roadster sports car in a few years.
