Recent reports are linking SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. Details are coming out regarding the notion that the Tesla Model 3 100 kWh might not be released at all.
I4u relayed that the new car model created by Tesla would not be powered by a 100-kWh battery pack. According to the report, the upcoming Tesla Model 3 which has already gotten so many people mesmerized will be arriving on the door steps of its owners in a few months from now and there were a number of expectations that were associated with the company's new and affordable car.
One of the expected features was a longer range of mileage from Model 3, but it looks as if the car won't be getting a bigger battery of 100kWh which means that it won't have a longer range as well, but the Model 3 will have a range of 215 miles at least.
Digital Review also mentioned that Elon Musk has already confirmed that the Tesla Model 3 would be powered and prepped up differently. The report showed that with the Tesla Model S and Model X, the company expanded the battery base from 60 kWh to 100 kWh and the 60 kWh gives a mileage of about 218 miles of EPA ranges while 100 kWh batteries stretches the mileage to 315 miles.
When asked why the Tesla Model 3 would not have the 100 kWh, Elon Musk responded that the concept is not feasible. According to the same post, it is because the wheelbase for the Model 3, which is cheaper than Model S, is much smaller in size and will not be able to house such a huge battery and Musk is yet to mention the battery size that would be put in the upcoming Model 3.
For the car enthusiast prying to own a Tesla Model 3, the battery feature may have changed, but Elon Musk has promised some exciting features for the new car. As for the other details, the SpaceX CEO remains tight lipped on the details.
