“Together, our inventions achieve what lithium-ion has yet to do—meet the ultra-low cost targets of the grid and transportation industries. By 2020 our battery costs will be less than $100 a kilowatt-hour. We’re emerging at the right time with the right technology.”
“Model 3 remains on schedule. As we’ve stated, we plan to show Model 3 in 2016 and begin production in 2017. Straubel’s slide is a high-level look into when Model 3 will be in full production.”
Tesla denies recent rumours that the production start for the Model 3 will be pushed back until 2018. Information on slide from a presentation by Tesla CTO J.B. Straubel wa falsely interpreted as confirming a delay.
