EV Groups Welcome Baby Tesla

3,783

Electric vehicle groups have welcomed the news of a new entry-level Tesla hatchback. Experts from LeaseElectricCar.co.uk said Tesla’s smallest and most affordable car so far could convince thousands of motorists to join the electric vehicle revolution.

Dubbed the ‘baby Tesla’, the planned hatchback will be a rival for Volkswagen’s ID3 as well as cheaper EVs from Korean and Chinese manufacturers.

It is expected to go on sale in the UK at a price point of around £20,000, making it by far the cheapest Tesla so far.

It is predicted to offer a range of around 250 miles on a single charge, which measures up well against rivals of a similar size.

The new vehicle will be built on a new platform which Tesla has hinted should be half the cost of producing EVs.

Introducing a lower-priced Tesla could play a significant role in EV adoption, opening Tesla ownership to more UK motorists.

The chart-topping American car manufacturer has made developing a smaller, more affordable model its crucial focus.

With details of the new hatchback being teased on social media in recent days, many industry insiders pinpointed the investor event for this important announcement.

Tim Alcock from LeaseElectricCar.co.uk said any new vehicle launch by Tesla was sure to grab the attention of drivers who have already converted to electric power and motorists who have remained loyal to the combustion engine.

He said:  “This new baby Tesla will shake up the market. Launching a new, compact entry-level Tesla is excellent news for electric car buyers.

“For many drivers, Tesla is the brand they aspire to own, but costs of entry have been high until now.

“We expect this new EV to be a compelling option for motorists keen to drive a Tesla but have been put off by the cost so far.

“By making the brand accessible at a lower price point, thousands more drivers will join the ranks of the UK’s growing army of Tesla owners. We expect the new EV to be a huge hit for Tesla.”
