Posted August 08, 2019 05:33:15 Tesla announced the Model 3 today, and while there were a few things we missed, the car itself is still pretty solid.
The company is aiming for about 200,000 vehicles in 2021, which is a record, and the Model X and X Sport were two of the first cars to be sold with a 200kWh battery pack.
Tesla’s other electric car, the Model S, sold in 2018 for about 300,000.
With all the Model III production still in production, we wanted to find out what kind of cars are in line for the future.
It’s not quite all there yet.
First, let’s go through the basics.
What are the Tesla Model 3 and Model X?
Tesla says the Model Three is the “ultimate luxury sedan with unmatched comfort, convenience and style.”
The Model X is a crossover that features an 8.3-foot-long, 2.5-tonne sports sedan body and features a 10-kWh lithium-ion battery pack with 100kWh range.
The car has a 5.5:1 rear-wheel drive system and a 5-kW electric motor.
Model 3 vs. Model X: The Model 3 is a luxury sedan, which means it comes with a premium price tag and has a ton of extras.
It’s also the first car with the same battery pack as the Model Y, which launched in 2019.
Model S vs. the Model x: The Tesla Model S is the second-generation Tesla Model, and it comes in three trim levels.
The Model S Plus is a premium sedan that’s priced at $30,000, $40,000 and $50,000 (depending on the trim level).
Model X starts at $55,000 for the premium version, and costs $70,000 with the base trim.
The Tesla X is the highest-end sedan in the Model lineup, and is priced at a whopping $90,000 per vehicle.
The X is also the only electric car in the lineup to have a larger battery pack than the Model y.
Model III vs. X: While there are some Model III upgrades, including a more powerful 6.2-liter V8, the main difference between the two vehicles is price.
The $60,000 Model III is still the most affordable car in Model lineup (aside from the Model 2).
The Model Y starts at around $60k for the base version, but starts at about $70k with the top-of-the-line, supercharged version.
