The other day I posted a story
based on an article from TheCarConnection that speculated that the next Tesla model could be a crossover vehicle. One of the commenters wondered whether such a vehicle might be based on the Lotus APX concept
that was shown last year. I took this intriguing idea to the source and asked Tesla. According to Darryl Siry, the new VP of Marketing at Tesla
, they currently have no plans to build a crossover, and the next vehicle they're working on is a 4-door, 5-passenger sedan that they've previously announced. They are working with a variety of suppliers to design and build a totally new car in such a short time (about three years from now), and they are planning a factory of their own. The location of the manufacturing facility is still TBD
, but ABG will of course keep you up to date as things develop.
