Starting a new car company from scratch is no easy (or cheap) task. It’s comparable to building an entire city… on Mars. Despite the challenges and unfavorable odds Tesla seems to be doing quite well. Its Model S sedan has received numerous accolades and now some information about the brand’s next product is beginning to come out.
The so-called Model E could be released in as little as a year and a half. This allegedly “entry-level” car is expected to feature a design that’s similar to the big-brother Model S.

Not surprisingly this vehicle will probably have a smaller battery than its larger stable-mate. Despite the pint-sized pack it’s rumored the car will still manage to deliver a driving range of 199 miles (320 kilometers), which is nearly identical to the base version of the Model S.

As for pricing the entry-level Tesla is estimated to cost around $35,000, though this is almost certainly a complete wild-a** guess. Likewise the car’s launch date is shrouded in mystery; the Model E could, possibly, maybe reach the market as early as 2015. Sorry about the wait, but even on earth Rome wasn’t built in a day.
