Tesla’s $25K Compact Car May See Real-World Road Tests Sooner Than Expected

...the car will be designed by locally-hired designers. This should allow the EV maker to create an affordable car that caters to the specific needs of the Chinese market.


The upcoming vehicle will likely be positioned for the working class, offer modest power and about 350-450 km (217-279 miles) of range. Combined with its price and Tesla’s trademark tech and safety, such a vehicle would likely sell very well.

The vehicle will also be produced in Gigafactory Shanghai, though the specific area where its production line would be set up is yet to be announced.
