    New baby Tesla previewed in official design sketch



    Tesla has released a design sketch of a new compact EV, along with plans for a new China-based design studio and R&D centre

    Tesla has revealed plans to build a new design studio/research and development centre in China. This design sketch was released as part of the announcement, previewing how the company’s first compact vehicle would look. Should it reach production, the vehicle would sit under the Model 3 in Tesla’s line-up, acting as a rival to the Volkswagen ID.3.

    The design sketch was released in an official company document, which outlines the new design and engineering centre’s intentions and issues a call for job applicants – so this sketch could be little more than a well-engineered recruitment tool, produced to attract designers and engineers to Tesla’s new Chinese facility.

    During a launch event for the Chinese-built Model 3 and Model Y, Musk explicitly expressed his desire to design an electric car in China for the global market. He said: “I think something that would be super cool – and so we’re gonna do it, we’re gonna try to do it – would be to create a China design and engineering center to actually design an original car in China for worldwide consumption.

    “I think this will be very exciting. I think China has some of the best art in the world, and I think it’s something that would be appreciated on a worldwide basis. I think it should be done, and we’re gonna do it.”

    Will Tesla be the first US company to import Chinese made EVs in high volume?

    It's a cute little thing... even if it has no eyes or mouth.

    Now, it should be noted that the petition was actually submitted by an individual who is known for betting on Tesla stock to decrease in value. According to Clean Technica, the individual in question doesn’t own a Tesla themself.

    It's OK to dislike a brand, and still report the facts.
    And before someone links GM having far more recalls, um yeah, they sell far more. And to me, the nature of the risk is far more important. I can deal with failed transmissions and door hinges and the like, but cars flying out of control on their own.....can't imagine anything more risky or frightening.

    Tesla has already said they reviewed the cars logs and the cars operated in the way they were intended to. IE, they mashed the gas pedal when they meant to hit the brake. Why do you think so many cars drive thru a garage wall?

    And wait until everything is autonomous remote controlled and they start doing that very thing..., this "flying out of control on their own". Now to me that's fits your being "risky and frightening" scenario as well.
