Tesla is set to unveil its latest car, the Model 3 on March 31, but we still don’t know much about the affordable electric vehicle. Very little has leaked in the lead-up to the company’s big reveal, but a last minute report from Electrek may have spilled the beans.
Two standout features for the Model 3 will allegedly be the ability to go from 0-60mph in under four seconds, and an impressive range of over 300 miles per charge. However, it looks like these high-end specs may be limited to more expensive versions of the car. Tesla is expected to offer the new EV for as little as $25,000 with tax incentives included, but high-end variants could cost as much as $50,000-$60,000.
The most expensive version of the Model 3 could even outdo the Model S when it comes to battery range. Tesla may offer an 80kWh, which would make it possible to drive for almost five hours straight – nearly 364 miles – without needing to charge. That’s better than the Model S 90D, which can hit 288 miles per charge.
The report also offers a bit more information on the Model 3’s mysterious design, which a source describes as “sexy and sporty,” adding that “it seems so right.” The car apparently looks like a hybrid of the Model X and Model S design, though the front is closer to the Model X in style. Additionally, Wired Germany has published an alleged image of the Model 3 hiding under a black cloth.
Tesla is set to unveil the Model 3 tomorrow. You can reserve the new car as soon as it’s announced, but it won’t actually be ready until at least late 2017.
