Musk Reveals New Tesla Roadster Will Have Insane SpaceX Performance Option

Tesla got a head start in the premium electric vehicle segment

Meanwhile, production of the all-wheel-drive variant is imminent, so United States customers who are waiting to configure their D-badged Model 3 order will receive a notification within the next week, said Musk. "I'm trying to recalibrate as much as possible".

The world's largest sovereign wealth fund, Norway's US$1-trillion Government Pension Fund Global, voted in favor of a proposal to separate Elon Musk's chairman and CEO roles at Tesla at the EV maker's shareholders' meeting on Tuesday. "But I think we're getting there".

Tesla also showed a design sketch of the upcoming Model Y SUV although little could be seen in the shadowy image and Musk teased that the auto might not even have a steering wheel, stoking some fans' hopes that the vehicle could be fully autonomous. Model 3 began deliveries in mid 2017.

SpaceX delays plans to send tourists around Moon
SpaceX completed its 11th mission of the year when it sent an SES-12 communications satellite into space on June 4. The satellite, along with SES-8, will reach 18 million TV homes, according to SES .

Musk's confidence in hitting the Model 3 production target is based on recent upgrades at Tesla's Fremont, California manufacturing facility.

Contrary to recent press reports asking if Tesla might be abandoning the mass market and what happened to the $35,000 Model 3, Musk assured investors Tesla has not given up on plans to manufacture the base-level version of the auto.

"At Tesla we build our cars with love", Musk said. Musk confirmed the four-wheel drive version of the Model 3 is due in July, while a "shorter-range battery/lower-cost" Model 3 should arrive "around the end of this year". The company may announce more details about that factory as soon as next month, Musk said, then reveal plans for another to be built somewhere in Europe toward the end of 2018.

Meanwhile, another tweet started doing the rounds online.in which every first letter of, her sentences spelled the word "HELP". Last Wednesday, Melania Trump tweeted in response to news stories about her absence from public view.

The Model Y is expected to be a scaled-down Model X riding atop the Model 3's platform, complete with falcon doors and all, according to reports. Musk said that it is important that the sports auto is better than its gasoline-powered rivals in every way, in order to prove the superiority of electric cars.

Tesla plans to unveil the Model Y crossover SUV in March 2019, with production launching in the first half of 2020. An activist investor group cited failures to meet goals with the sedan as one of the reasons shareholders should have opposed re-electing three directors to the board, though that campaign failed.

Tesla said it delivered 26,150 vehicles total in the third quarter, a 4.5 per cent rise on the same period of 2016.
