H for hoax, that is.

The image was allegedly “leaked” from within Tesla. If anything, this fits the description of the Y, which is the “more adventurous” falcon-winged crossover based on the new platform. Could any production vehicle have such an extreme ratio of greenhouse to pillar? Doubt it.

*Tesla has issued a statement in regards to this image. In bullet points, Jalopnik says this is what the electric automaker told them:

  • • We weren’t the only outlet to get this email and this image.
  • • Tesla claims it’s not a Tesla image, and it’s not one that came from them.
  • • They said “this is not the Model 3.”
  • • They agreed it appeared to be a Photoshopped Model X press picture.
*Editor's Note: This and countless other Tesla-related posts appear on TeslaMondo. Check it out here.
