Tesla Model E Rendering In Blue
March 11th, 2014 by Jo Borrás
Editor’s Note: Millions of us are waiting for any little detail we can get on the Tesla Model E. Some of us are waiting so eagerly for it that we are making photoshop renderings of how it might look. Seriously. And I have to say that I really love the look of the Model E rendered below. I can imagine that car making it into a huge number of homes… with the price and range targets Tesla has listed. Anyway, on to Jo’s commentary:
It’s at least two years away, but there’s already rampant speculation about the whys, whats, and hows of Tesla’s “entry-level” Model E sedan. There should be, after all- because the Model E, even more than the Model S and Roadster before it, will be the car that brings EVs to the attention of mainstream America. What’s more, we think it’s gonna look a lot like these renderings by Photoshop artist Remco Meulendijk.
The 2016 Tesla Model E sedan is expected to debut shortly after the production version of the all-wheel drive Model X crossover- itself expected to be shown at next year’s Detroit Auto Show. When the car finally does arrive, it’s believed that it will be about 20% shorter (length-wise) than the current Model S, carry a 48 kWh battery pack, and cost closer to Elon Musk’s stated $35,000 target than the $48,000 number that was being bandied about a few weeks ago.
Take a look at the pictures here, then let us know what you think of the Design RM renderings for the new 2016 Tesla Model E in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
