Tesla's New More Affordable Car

Tesla's New More Affordable Car

By J Pat. CREATED Jul 17, 2014

All electric car manufacturer Tesla will launch a new model in 2016 and the price looks more affordable than its $75-80K Tesla S Roadster.  The Tesla III will compete with the BMW 3 Series and is projected to cost about $35,000.  The price is nice and the car company is on fire but this story is on the Fun Blog because of the backstory:

Tesla makes a Model S and a Model X.  When they considered what to call the new car, founder Elon Musk said "...we had the model S and X, we might as well have the E." ...put it it.  Funny thing is that Ford said they have the rights to a "Model E" and sued.  So, the car will be called the "III" and they will have to move forward with the S, III, X models.
