Elon Musk: Tesla Model 3 “Part 3” Reveal Will Be Spring 2017
Yesterday, following the Tesla/SolarCity merger deal, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that “Part 3” of the Model 3 reveal is just a few months aways.
“Today is not the time for that announcement, uh but, I mean — it’s probably, yes, I don’t know,umm, beginning of spring or something like that, yes. Three or four months from now.”
Musk didn’t seem all too comfortable answering the question and it probably wasn’t an appropriate one to begin with since it has no solid connection to SolarCity, but if the words of Musk are true, then we should get ready for “Part 3” of the Model 3 reveal to be as soon as late March 2017.
With “volume production and deliveries of Model 3 in the second half of 2017,” Tesla will need to at least reveal the production vehicle by next Spring, we’d think. So far, all we’ve seen are protoype Model 3s.
“Part 1” of the Model 3 reveal occurred back in March 2016 with protoypes shown and pre-orders being accepted (some 400,000 or so to date). “Part 2” happened more recently, but it was a bit of a let down in that it was tied in with all Teslas being capable of self-driving. Really, nothing more of the 3 was revealed in Part 2, so now we must assume that Part 3 will reveal the production car and a finished interior. Antyhing less will be a disappointment.
What do you expect to see in “Part 3?
