I know we all like the higher-end S and X, but why not release the Model 3 and take the next logical step? At only 20% smaller than the Model S, the 3 will still be massive and have insane(unnecessary) performance levels. Can we think about maximizing efficiency/cost and go with something more the size of a Civic? 0-60 in......who cares. Slow. Same as a base model Civic. One moderate sized motor, rear wheel drive. Very simple computer that's mostly for monitoring. No over the air anything, you gotta USB/bluetooth your phone in to do updates/communicate. The best thing about EVs is their simplicity, why not see how far we can push that? A skateboard with a laptop in it. By the time this came to production appropriate batteries would be ready, you'd only need 150 miles of range and if it's light enough that's a small pack. There are so many things that could be stripped out or made ever so slightly less convenient, shouldn't we be talking about that as the next step? Perhaps they already are, who knows. - - - Updated - - - Think about the economic impact a vehicle like this would have for a poor family 5-7 years from now. They could easily have cheap solar and if you could give them a battery EV, it would be world-changing for their wealth prospects.
