Entry-level 2016 Tesla Model E Gets Rendered, Looks Good

2016 Tesla Model E

It’s at least two years away, but there’s already rampant speculation about the whys, whats, and hows of Tesla’s “entry-level” Model E sedan. There should be, after all- because the Model E, even more than the Model S and Roadster before it, will be the car that brings EVs to the attention of mainstream America. What’s more, we think it’s gonna look a lot like these renderings by Photoshop artist Remco Meulendijk.

The 2016 Tesla Model E sedan is expected to debut shortly after the production version of the all-wheel drive Model X crossover- itself expected to be shown at next year’s Detroit Auto Show. When the car finally does arrive, it’s believed that it will be about 20% shorter (length-wise) than the current Model S, carry a 48 kWh battery pack, and cost closer to Elon Musk’s stated $35,000 target than the $48,000 number that was being bandied about a few weeks ago.

Take a look at the pictures here, then let us know what you think of the Design RM renderings for the new 2016 Tesla Model E in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
