Tesla's Model 3 to Cost $35K(, reveal next) March, But Production Still 2 Years Away
NBCnews.com

by Devin Coldewey
Sep 2 2015


Tesla's long-awaited mass-market car, the Model 3, now has a price and debut plan courtesy of the company's founder, Elon Musk, who posted the details to Twitter on Wednesday.
@elonmusk $35k price, unveil in March, preorders start then.
Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 2, 2015
The $35,000 price is just what was expected, and Tesla is well known for unveiling its cars well before they are available to buy. Still, it will likely disappoint many that a cheaper Tesla won't arrive until 2017 at the very earliest.


crossreference: $35,895 base XE

...what the Tesla Model 3 Could Look Like?
AutoGuide

By Stephen Elmer| Dec 02, 2015|

Tesla’s Model 3 promises to offer 250 miles of range for just $35,000 and we have new renderings speculating what it might look like.

Based on what we have seen with the Model X SUV, the new Tesla Model 3 won’t likely stray too far from the brand’s established design. Our renderings show a familiar face with more compact proportions compared to the longer and wider Model S.

Despite its similar look, Tesla says that the Model 3 will not share many parts with the larger Model S.

Re: Tesla "Model III" ie 3-series-targeted - Automotive News

found a sizeable articleS on the III (possibly mostly speculation)
and since I don't have time/patience to go thru it now, posting instead...

Tesla Model 3 Review
PluginCars.com
The paydirt car for Tesla, a stylish mass-produced 200-mile EV


One of many unofficial wild guesses of how the Model S's design can be downscaled to a the smaller Model 3. However, Tesla is likely to implement more aggressive differences in styling.


Tesla would have to defy all expectations to achieve success on the Model 3, while avoiding all the potential pitfalls—not only for the 200-mile $35,000 Model 3, but a massive new battery factory, and the Model X that comes first. Can Tesla do it again?

How Much Will A 200-Mile Tesla Model 3 Really Cost?
Forbes

Sam Abuelsamid - Feb 15, 2016

In the wake of Tesla’s recent announcement of 2015 financial results and a Bloomberg report that the upcoming Model 3 could cost as little as $25,000, it’s worth taking a looking at the prospects for the more affordable electric car with a somewhat more jaundiced eye...
