The long-hinted entry-level Tesla offering, the Model E could be shown earlier than anyone expected.
AutoBild had the chance to interview Tesla's Chief Designer, Franz von Holzhausen. Holzhausen revealed that the Model E could be shown at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, a full year ahead than what everyone was expecting.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been hinting at the Model E for awhile, saying that it would be the size of a BMW 3-Series, have a range of 200 Miles, and cost somewhere around $30,000 (after federal EV tax credits).
Holzhausen also revealed that work on the Tesla's next model, the seven-seat Model X crossover was coming to close.
