Tesla has confirmed that its Gen III car, which was originally called the Model E, has now been renamed the Model III. The Tesla Model III or Model 3 as some people will call it, is slated to arrive after the Model X, with an anticipated on sale date set for sometime in 2017.
After Ford sued Tesla because of it had already claimed the Model E name, Tesla’s CEO has confirmed that the automaker has decided on the Model III name for its new small sedan. The Model III is expected to be about 20 percent smaller than the Model S, but it will have a driving range around 200 miles. Tesla expects the Model III to have a price tag around $35,000.
