    I was under the impression that Model E will be smaller than the Model S.
    But it doesn't appear to be the case based on this article:

    Tesla says no Model E next year | T3

    The original Autobild article is in German:
    Tesla-Chefdesigner von Holzhausen: "i3 ist wie ein IKEA-Möbel" - autobild.de

    Thanks.

    Reporters get things wrong all the time. And the headline "Tesla says no Model E next year" sort of implies that they are not quiet familiar with Tesla, and their offerings and their schedule.

    I fully expect the Model E to be ~A4, BMW 3 series sized sedan/wagon.

    The Model S is very large. No other manufacturers have two vehicles offered in that size. So I highly doubt it will happen.

    IMO the journalist confused size with shape in the above mentioned article.

    This has been discussed before.

    Bild is a terrible news agency. It's a tabloid of the worst kind, and I'd be surprised if it didn't hold true for the car version.
