Ilon Mask recalled last year's success of Tesla Model 3 and said that the company is preparing to release a new version of the electric car with an even greater power reserve without additional charge. At the shareholders' meeting, the head of the corporation spoke about the key characteristic of the future news.
According to Mask, an electric vehicle will soon appear in the company's range, capable of covering a distance of just over 640 kilometers on a single charge of onboard batteries (as opposed to 498 for the basic Model 3 version). It is expected that the novelty will solve the problem of Tesla owners who prefer long trips. Whether it is a question of an upgrade of an already existing car with an electric motor or the release of a completely new model, the entrepreneur did not specify.
The Tesla Model S configuration with a power reserve of 595 kilometers is currently the record holder among the electric vehicles of the company, and the Tesla Roadster is expected to appear in 2020 – according to rumors, the novelty can travel up to 997 kilometers on one battery charge.
Musk also expressed interest in working with other companies in order to expand the number of charging stations for Tesla in addition to its own Supercharger network.
