Forget about wanting to compete in the most heavily contested market, that of the (electric) family hatchback.

Why not a pincer movement, since we're basically discussing car making strategies,
and (bottom up) work on an affordable, lightweight daily commuter / running errands EV?
Next to Tesla's already obvious top-down approach.

The lighter and more slippery the vehicle, the more battery-efficient.
Admittedly, the semi three-wheeler will not be to everyone's taste. But what is?

I doubt we’ll see anything smaller than the 3 for a long time. Small hatchbacks are very tight on space and I dont think they would have enough room for the battery.

Hadn't heard anything about this, I thought the Model 3 was going to be the smallest Tesla?

Tesla to build Golf rival within five years

Way back in the beginning, a sub-compact in the $25k range was on Tesla's plate, then it was off, now it seems to be back on. Since I canceled my Model 3 reservation because it's too large, I would be one of the first inline for this car.

It could be a model M... for SM3XY.

I think a sub-compact would be fantastic for the Euro/UK market too. We love our Ford KAs, Fiat 500s, Nissan Micras and Smart Cars.
