At one point, Tesla’s third car — the one they’re trying to get to the market for around $35,000 — was called the Model E.
So Tesla is changing it up. Their third generation car will be called, appropriately, the Model 3. (Which, if you ask me, is even more similar to Model T phonetically. Oh, and it’s also not to be confused with the BMW 3 Series.)
Tesla says the Model 3 will come sometime after their SUV, the Model X, which should ship sometime in 2015. Alas, there’s still no concrete evidence as to what the Model 3 will look like, though it’s said to look like a smaller version of their somewhat wide-bodied Model S.
