Is this the shadowy outline of the Tesla Model 2?
Elon Musk teases a new car - thought to be a smaller EV - at Tesla’s Annual Shareholders Meeting
Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the company is working on two new products, one of which is the car silhouetted in the dark teaser image you see here.
Yep, despite there being no sign of the long-ago-promised Roadster (allegedly we’ll see the also-long-ago-promised Cybertruck hit production later in 2023) Tesla is busying itself with two more cars to bolster its existing line-up of the Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y.
Speaking at Tesla’s Annual Shareholders Meeting yesterday, Musk claimed that both new cars would be “head and shoulders above anything else that is present in the industry” in terms of their design and manufacturing.
The car teased above doesn’t have a name yet, but it’s thought that it’ll be smaller than the Model 3 and so is being referred to by speculators as… the Model 2. Makes sense.
What we do know is that they’ll be mass market cars. Musk guessed that the two cars would eventually sell a combined five million units between them, hastily caveated with the words “Don’t sue me!”
So, is Tesla working on a smaller, more affordable EV to rival everything from the VW ID.3 to the MG4? Or are we in the ball park of the Renault 5 and VW ID.2all concept (plus the equivalent cheap Skoda)?
We shall see…
