2017 Tesla Model 3 News — Drive Range & Price
Yet another addition to the Tesla lineup is the all-new small sedan which is being prepared for the premiere in 2016, so it might belong to the 2017 model year. So, the 2017 Tesla Model 3 (which will be stylized with three vertical lines: 2017 Model III) will be a very well-built EV with a pretty reasonable price. Of course, it’s a reasonable price having in mind the pricing of the other Tesla models, but this doesn’t mean that there are no other, more affordable EVs. However, owning a Tesla was always special, since Tesla vehicles, aside from the fact that they are green, provide superb luxury, stunning style and the high-end technology. The 2017 Tesla Model 3 had some difficulties regarding the name. Reportedly, the original manufacturer’s intention was to call it the Model E, but Ford stepped in and the court decided that they have no right to use this name. Therefore, the sedan is called the Model 3. What’s more important than the name of this car is its performance. The 2017 Model 3 will use the latest technology, so its battery pack will be good enough to provide an impressive drive range. This will be an entry model of the Tesla family, but it will still be a Tesla car.
2017 Tesla Model 3 Body Features
There will be numerous features which will declare that the 2017 Model 3 belongs to the EV aristocracy, but at the same time, this car won’t hesitate to differ from its cousins. It will be built on an all-new platform, developed for a car whose body will be significantly smaller. Reportedly, the Model 3 will be approximately 20 percent smaller in comparison with the Model S. The rumors about this platform claim that it won’t be made of lightweight materials such as aluminum. It will be built using heavier materials, which will reduce the manufacturing cost. This decision will necessary affect the performance and the drive range, but it will make it possible for almost everyone to buy a Tesla car. The 2017 Tesla Model 3 will follow the already established design language of the rest of the Tesla family, so although we currently don’t how how exactly the sedan will appear, there’s no doubt it will be sleek with highly-stylized exterior and a pretty comfortable cabin. However, it will have some distinctive details, which will make it unique.
Powertrain & Drive Range
The powertrain of the 2017 Model 3 will be equipped by the latest battery pack, which will provide pretty satisfactory performance. Reportedly, it will have drive range of 200 miles. This couldn’t be considered as a great accomplishment when compared with the announced Model S future drive range. Currently, the Model S provides slightly over 200 miles of drive range, but the future one will be able to travel between 300 and 400 miles with just one charge. Unfortunately, the 2017 Tesla Model 3 won’t be an electric vehicle whose drive range will be that impressive, but its 200 miles couldn’t be neglected. As for the other features of the 2017 Tesla Model 3, we expect the news about those soon.
2017 Tesla Model 3 Price & Release
The price of the 2017 Tesla Model 3 will be around $35,000. Compared with other Tesla vehicles, this price is amazing. As for the release, the sedan should be introduced during 2016 and it will probably be distributed sometime during 2017.
