The Tesla Model 3, expected to go on sale in the next couple of months, is a far cry from the $35k the company originally promised.
“The $35K figure is not accurate,” said Tim McMillan, a Toronto-based analyst with Capital Economics.
The company has a long way to go before it can sell enough Model 3s to meet demand. “
This is an incredibly high number for a vehicle that will be in production for a long time.”
The company has a long way to go before it can sell enough Model 3s to meet demand.
Tesla says it expects to sell 5,000 vehicles in 2017, and has promised to sell 500,000 by 2020.
McMilland said it’s hard to understand why Musk, who founded Tesla in 2008, hasn’t been more aggressive in raising the price of the Model S and Model X, and that he’s been working to lower the sticker price of a car like the Model X. But McMill, who has been writing a Tesla blog for several years, noted that the company’s new vehicles will also be offered in some markets where it doesn’t yet have a foothold.
“As they become available, we expect the price to be higher in the market,” he said.
“I don’t think we’ll see the Model C as a viable alternative, at least not anytime soon.”
Tesla has been making significant strides in lowering the sticker cost of its vehicles.
The company is selling about 1.6 million Model S cars each month and selling about 400,000 of the vehicles at a discount.
In November, Musk announced that Tesla would start charging the Model E electric vehicle to customers with a $35 pre-paid card.
Musk said Tesla expects the cost of a Model E to fall to $35 by the end of 2019, but the company is not sure how far along in the development process that will happen.
Musk has said that Tesla’s electric vehicle charging network will be a “first in the world.”
In addition to charging customers, Tesla has launched its new service for drivers that lets them take advantage of its autonomous driving technology.
The new service lets drivers “see” and “navigate” the car, and they can request a parking space at a nearby gas station, McMillisaid.
McMillian noted that Tesla has made some progress in developing a more autonomous vehicle, including its new autopilot system that can keep the vehicle from swerving into oncoming traffic and take over if a driver is lost or injured.
He said Tesla’s current autonomous system isn’t perfect, but that it is “much more robust” than what was in the early versions of its technology.
But he said Tesla is still working on making its vehicle more driver-friendly, including by incorporating cameras and other sensors to help make sure the car is traveling at a safe speed.
The cost of the Tesla Model X is expected to be about $100,000, while the $100k Model 3 has not been announced.
McMills said the price for the Model Y, the cheaper of the two vehicles, is “not surprising.”
McMillam said that the Model 4 will be Tesla’s top-of-the-line vehicle, but it will not be released until late 2018 or early 2019.
Tesla also has a new line of cars in the works.
McMillon said the company will start rolling out a new lineup of EVs, including the Model Z, the Model F, and the Model P, in the second half of 2019.
Musk, McMillian said, has promised that Tesla will unveil at least one new electric car every three years.
Tesla has already delivered more than 100 Model S sedans and Model 3 sedans to customers, and McMillans comments about Musk’s plan to make as many Model 3 EVs as possible were a “major surprise.”
“We expected this was going to be a bigger challenge,” McMillinsaid.
“We didn’t know how big the problem was going a couple years ago.”
McMills predicted that Tesla is likely to ship thousands of Model 3 vehicles per year.
He pointed to a slide from Tesla’s presentation on the Model B in 2018, which showed that the car had 1,600 miles on the odometer.
“They are really pushing hard on the production line to get that number down to 1,300,” McMillsaid.
Tesla is currently working on a range of Model X sedans that will come out later this year, but McMill’s comments come just a few weeks after the company revealed that it had signed a new contract with GM to build two-car fleets.
McMillion said that although the new fleet deal is not as big as the one Tesla signed with GM, the new agreement could be a major factor in the companys ability to get more cars to customers.
