Recently, it was reported that Tesla (TSLA.US) will launch a new model smaller than the Model 3 and Model Y at the Tesla Investor Day event held on March 1.

It is reported that the new car may be named "Model Q", and the market price is 25,000 US dollars (about 168,900 yuan). The main competitors of the same level include BYD Dolphin, Xiaopeng P5 and other models.

  In this regard, the relevant person in charge of Tesla told the Red Star Capital Bureau: "This is false news. Welcome to pay attention to the Tesla Investor Day event on March 1."

  As early as the beginning of 2021, there was news that Tesla would launch low-priced models within 200,000 yuan.

It is reported that the car will be a hatchback sedan smaller than the Model 3, or named Model 2, with a price of about 160,000 yuan.

At the beginning of 2022, the rumored name of the new car became Model Q. Since then, there have been renderings, but it has not been officially confirmed.

  Tesla CEO Musk has also repeatedly stated that Tesla will launch an entry-level electric car, priced at about 25,000 US dollars, and it will be launched in 2023 at the earliest.

He publicly clarified that the new car will not be called the Model 2.

  On October 20, 2022, Musk revealed in the third-quarter conference call that he is developing a next-generation model platform. The cost of the next-generation model will be half that of Model 3/Y, and the sales volume is expected to exceed the sum of Tesla's other vehicles. .

Tesla officially stated that it will announce information about Tesla's new-generation model platform at the Investor Day event held on March 1, 2023, without mentioning new cars.
