Tesla unveils ‘release candidate version’ of Model 3

Elon Musk-led e-carmaker Tesla unveiled the eagerly-awaited Model 3 on Friday, around a year after the renowned innovator provided a sneak peek at a prototype of the vehicle.

Mr. Musk used Twitter to post a short video of the Model 3 yesterday, showing a release candidate version of the new electric vehicle. The video shows the new car accelerating with quickness.

He also clarified that the Model 3 e-car is not a successor to the existing Model S. Model 3 is only a smaller, more affordable version of Model S w. The Model S comes equipped with more superior technology.

In an accompanying post, he wrote, “The Model 3 isn’t a successor to the Model S. Instead, Model 3 is just a smaller, more affordable version of Model S w less range & power & fewer features. The Model S has more advanced technology.”

He added that those who might be thinking that Model 3 is the next version of the existing Tesla car, like iPhone 2 vs. 3, are wrong.

Yet to hit the market with a starting price tag of $35,000, the Model 3 will be Tesla’s most affordably priced car. It will sprint from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds, and run for more than 215 miles on a single charge.
