Here are the biggest differences between Tesla's Model 3 and Model S

Tesla Model 3

Like initial batches of the Model 3, the Model S 75 comes with rear-wheel drive, but you can pay extra for the 75D to get all-wheel drive.

Details elsewhere are scant, but we understand the Model Y will ditch the complex and expensive "Falcon" doors fitted to the £80,000 Model X SUV and should be closer in price and size to the Model 3 saloon.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims the Gigafactory produces more batteries than any other factory in the world.

In a series of tweets Thursday night, Musk contested this version of events, calling this one "of all the bogus anecdotes" in the book, the one that "troubles" him the most.

The Tesla Model 3 has officially begun rolling off the assembly line, but the vehicle will see a staggered launch.

Previously, Tesla's luxury line of vehicles has been produced in much smaller numbers.

As a reminder, the Tesla Model 3 is offered from $ 35,000 in the United States, or about 30,000 € at home, where it should land in 2018. That is $300 million more than Tesla initially planned to sell, a sign that demand for the debt is high.

Tesla knows which next innovation is good for you, whether you know it or not.

Musk's claim has been reported by green auto blog Electrek, which cites two sources involved in a conference call for bondholders. While Tesla workers have talked of unionization before, the increased strain of "production hell" may add new urgency to that debate, the website reports.

"They may be investing due to the uniqueness of the offering rather than the value".

Our exclusive image shows how the Model Y should look and follows an earlier teaser shot that revealed a sleek, sculpted auto, completely lacking wing mirrors.

That vehicle is thought to come with an even more powerful battery that lift its dual motors from the Model S P100D.

The new notes offering will not dilute equity holders.

However, as Tesla's quarterly earnings performance shows, it may finally be time for TSLA stock bears to set Musk's irritable inaccuracies aside and re-examine their stance on the company.

Tesla's cash burn has prompted short-sellers like Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn to bet against the Palo Alto, California company.
