Reduced price for the Model X, revealing the extended range of the Model 3 and a few more details about the Model Y - the electric car maker's passing week was definitely interesting
Tesla's popular (more or less) Model 3 vehicles come off production lines and reach first customers across North America, which is something that definitely helps keep the company's name across the web headlines even more usually - when Mask and people seem to enjoy every minute more Of this attention.
First, it was a technical detail from the US EPA that confirmed that the 3's extended range version would indeed enjoy a very impressive driving range of about 310 miles between charges, compared to 499 miles officially defined for the standard model of the car . How will this happen? Using an array סוללות Significantly increased overall capacity of 80 kilowatt-hours (more than anticipated earlier estimates) compared to capacity of about 55 kilowatt-hour in the cheapest model of the vehicle - with both cases being a surprisingly good statistic, which will probably provide a significant portion of drivers at least for one working day.
At Tesla, they also announced that the serial production line enhancement for the company's massive Model X model allows them to cut their price slightly - at $ 3,000 to be exact, with a cost now starting at $ 79,500 for the Jeep base, and at $ 145,000 For the most advanced version with array סוללות At a capacity of 100 kWh. Nice, but still significantly expensive - 35,000 dollars you will be asked to pay for a standard Model 3 and 44,000 dollars that cost Model 3 in the increased travel range version.
And now, for the future: The carmaker who threatens to become the largest in the US market plans to unveil a massive, advanced electric truck within a month, which will not only be based on "simple" basic propulsion units such as those Model 3 cars, but will also include autonomous driving capabilities Provide competition to those of a company Uber And the semi-Israeli start-up Otto. It will be interesting to see if all this will actually materialize, because this could be the start of another big leap for Tesla.
And for dessert, Model Y - the next (and fourth) main model of the company, which will be a crossover vehicle more popular than the Model X is scheduled to hit the market sometime in 2019, at a time when Tesla plans to reach massive production volumes of around a million vehicles each year "In the really big league" in the automotive world and will allow the model to be especially cheap, partly because it shares the same architecture Basic (and possibly even a vehicle) with the Model 3.
We continue to wait impatiently for the day when the producer's plans begin to turn to the Israeli market, but for now are content with these grandiose expansion plans, which at the very least should ensure that at some point in the future it will have the resources and capabilities required to launch a comprehensive international marketing and infrastructure operation.
