A “really” accessible Tesla, at $25,000, would it really be a Tesla? However, Elon Musk’s firm has nothing more to prove. With a car, more compact and sold almost half the price of the first of its models, the company would be in great danger of smashing its record sales figures again. The whimsical boss of Tesla has a few surprises in store that he will unveil today during his “Investor Day”.
The promise ofElon MuskElon Musk to launch a autonomous vehicleautonomous vehicle less than 25,000 dollars will it finally come true? While he must unveil Tesla’s strategy for the coming months at an event dedicated to investors, “Investor Day”, scheduled for Wednesday 1is March, the rumor resurfaced.
A Tesla for only $25,000 (about the same in euros)? You dreamed of it, the American manufacturer may soon announce it. A few days before the event, the specialized site Autospy published images of a camouflaged vehicle that could be this famous car, while some Internet users thought they saw furtively, on their side, the first drawings of this new model in a video broadcast on the social networkssocial networks To install Tesla.
A future Tesla that breaks prices
This Model 2 (or A, or C…) would be a more compact version of the current Model 3, built on the basis of a completely new platform and equipped with a smaller battery. Everything would be produced in its factory in Shanghai, China, the only way to really cut prices. In any case, its launch would not be planned before 2024, in the best case.
With a vehicle finally “accessible”, sold almost half the price of the entry-level Model 3 and Y, Tesla could boost its production and sales. In 2022, the American manufacturer sold 1.3 million vehicles worldwide, a new record.
As a reminder, currently, with a budget between 25,000 and 30,000 euros (once the ecological bonus has been deducted), you are only entitled to city cars with regard to new electric cars, such as the Renault ZOE, the Peugeot e-208 or the Fiat 500. However, it remains to be seen whether this new model, whatever its name, will be well distributed via the brand’s catalog at a bargain price or whether it will be exclusively reserved for future fleets of robotaxis, another major project of Elon Musk.
In addition to this hypothetical announcement, “Investor Day” should be an opportunity to find out more about the availability of the Cybertruck and the Semi truck, the launch or not of a restyled version of the Model 3, the constructionconstruction future battery gigafactories and the arrival of a next generation on-board computer (HW4) and autonomous driving software. And quid of sound robot humanoidhumanoid Optimus ?
