We recently wrote that Tesla is developing a compact electric hatchback to compete with European models. It turns out that the development was going ahead of schedule.
It is a well-known fact that different cars are valued in different markets. It is also no secret that Europeans often prefer more compact cars, which almost always hindered the successful sales of American cars in Europe. And even the successful Tesla Model 3 is still too big and, of course, expensive. We already wrote that Tesla is developing a compact hatchback to compete with the VW ID.3 in the global market and electric vehicles like the Renault Zoe in Europe. Moreover, Zoe will be produced until 2023-2024.
The new compact electric vehicle was developed in complete secrecy by Tesla China and was initially targeted at the Chinese market. Many media and insiders credit it with the Model 2 name and a price tag of up to $ 25,000, which could interest even more people in electric vehicles. And now several insiders said at the same time that it turns out that the development was going faster than everyone thought and the prototype is already ready. Moreover, Chinese component suppliers are eager to participate in this project and therefore literally lined up for orders. By the end of 2021, test production of the new model may begin, and the first pre-production electric vehicles will go for testing.
Probably in the near future there will be even more information about the new product. We will keep you updated.
