Tesla reveals the Model 3, BMW 3 Series rival.

Tesla's plans for their 3 Series rival have been revealed. Auto Express got the details from Tesla CEO and Founder, Elon Musk about the new electric Tesla Model 3. Finally, we have a name!

This is the model originally dubbed 'Model E', but due to an agreement between Tesla and Ford, that name was nixed. The Model 3 is set to be unveiled in 2016 and should retail for around $35k. Remember, realistically priced! Have a look at what the Model 3 could look like. Looks like a smaller Model S, which I don't mind at all. What do you think?

More on the 'Realistically Priced' Tesla here!

I drove a Model S. Fast? Yes. Fun? No way. Too heavy.
Will the Model 3 be as light as a 3-series? No way.
