How radical will the model 3 be? I saw a video of a gathering of model S owners at the detroit car show. In it Elon says that they plan for the model 3 to have a radical design. So the question is what aspects of the design will be radical? The power train? The driver assist?, the motor placements?, the body?, the ownership model?, the financing? The batteries?, the wheelbase?
What could he be thinking about?
Tesla coil charge connection?
4 motor drive system?
4 body types, coup, sedan, van, suv, all interchangeable on the one scalable drive sled.
Fully fly by wire?
Full screen HUD
Mini wings to reduce rolling resistance?
What might the Tesla team call radical?
Elon thinks he will have a first concept for model 3 in 2016.
