Be sure to check out the Periscope of "First ride #Model3" from @TeslaMotors: Tesla Motors @TeslaMotors Here are some quotes: Ton of airflow engineering. TouchScreen is landscape. Longer range battery pack specs are not yet released. Will have both rear wheel drive and dual motor cars. Rear seat has "a ton of room" with glass instead of header creates a ton of room according to driver. UV protection: learned a ton from the Model X for UV protection. Layered glass -- individual layers to reflect UV, absorb UV, etc. Production car spec very close, but a lot of work to be done in time left, such as: Real Production Development Process, like Crash Safety, production tooling Almost none of Model S parts are reused for the Model 3. Used everything they learned from Model S and designed from ground up. More steel chassis, also has aluminum. Will get a lot more statistics closer to production. Super nimble low center of gravity like other Teslas. Expect the air suspension to be optional.
