Elon Musk called Tesla cars very expensiveJuly 28, 2020
A new cheap Tesla hatchback can be developed in Germany, where it will be produced at the Gigafactory in Berlin.
Elon Musk on Tuesday, July 28, stressed that Tesla cars are still quite expensive. Even after the Model 3 appeared, which in the USA, for example, costs $ 37,990, the cars of the brand are not available to many motorists.
“We need to make the newest Tesla car cheaper. Most of all I am worried about where we are at the moment in terms of price – the cost of our cars is quite high. We have to fix this, ”Musk said.
At the same time, the head of Tesla did not disclose details about the upcoming new product. However, it can be assumed that the car will be more compact and lighter than Model 3. It will be focused primarily on the European car market, where customers opt for small city cars. Accordingly, the novelty will be developed by German engineers. Musk himself, when asked about this, noted that it would be possible to create such a model “with a good designer and specialist from Germany.”
In addition, Elon Musk recently announced two new Tesla models. This time we are talking about a “compact electric car” and “high-capacity electric car”, which should appear after the armored electric pickup Cybertruck.
