Tesla's on a roll lately. It just won a dealer battle in Massachusetts, and it's rapidly changing the face of Silicon Valley. It's also plotting out the future with a lot of that hedging on the successful launch of the gen-three car, the Model 3.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has targeted a late 2017 launch for the Model 3 with a 200 mile range and stated goal price of $35,000. That range and price excites a lot of people. But what if that price is wrong? What if the Model 3's price tag is actually in the range of $50-$80k? That pricing is the most likely scenario according to noted battery skeptic Menahem Anderman. You can read a full breakdown of this over on Green Car Reports at the link below.
If the Model 3 doesn't end up having a price tag Elon Musk is touting, then the future of Tesla Motors could be considerably different than the trajectory sketched out by Musk and his enthusiasts.
