Tesla says it will take orders for cheaper car in March

Tesla Motors says it will reveal its lower-cost Model 3 electric car in March and will start taking orders then.

In a tweet Wednesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the car will start at $35,000, or about half the starting price of its current Model S sedan. Musk said the Model 3 will start production in about two years.

Musk also said deliveries of the Model X SUV—the company's third vehicle—will begin Sept. 29. Tesla wouldn't reveal pricing details.

Musk said each trim level of the Model X will be around $5,000 more than the equivalent trim level of the Model S because of the SUV's greater size and complexity.

Tesla gave away its patents to anybody who wanted them, to spur development of electric vehicles. It is Liberal Capitalism. Greedy corporations would extract the maximum from us for every part.

I don't know - You're the guy who didn't know that musk was making commercial units as well, and didn't even bother to look before proclaiming that he wasnt.

So this unreferenced post can be considered fabrication as well, and disregarded along with all the other garbage you post.
