Tesla Model 2: Musk’s economy car not on the horizon just yet

The press conference providing an update on Tesla’s financial results for the fourth quarter of 2021, and therefore for the whole of 2021, was an opportunity to Elon Musk To supply information about the company’s development plans for upcoming cars.

Musk has often been criticized, with reason, for having in the past provided information on the next cars of the American firm, except never being able to respect the schedules initially indicated. It was like that for many cars, in the recent past both for Roadsters and for Cybertrucks that have yet to come to fruition.

Information about a Tesla car cheaper than the Model 3, not officially listed as Model 2Musk was asked who made it clear that this type of car is not currently in the company’s thoughts and practical actions.

“We’re not currently working on a $25,000 car. We have too much to do.”

“We’re not currently working on a $25,000 car. We have too many things in the pipeline.” In fact, Musk is right when he says there’s already too much in the pipeline at the company.: between Cybertruck, Roadster and the rise of the two new Gigafactory in Berlin and Austin Tesla is undoubtedly at work on many demanding fronts, with the prospect of continuing to grow at a steady pace by increasing sales each year of his cars.


The Model 3 will therefore remain the entry proposal into the world of Tesla cars for a long time to come.even if in the future the possibility for Tesla to develop a smaller and more accessible car from an economic point of view remains a very interesting development prospect.

It is the market that demands a vehicle of this type, with a view to increasingly rapid distribution of electric vehicles in all market segments. However, Tesla’s 2021 sales results, with just under a million cars delivered and an operating profit, suggest that the times are not yet ripe and that the expansion of sales of the company will be guided for a long time to come by the range currently offered to potential customers. .
