The designer also revealed that the Model E won’t just be “a small Model S,” as the brand doesn’t want to be like Audi. As for the Model X, the crossover is nearly ready as the brand is currently working on the last aerodynamic tweaks. Tesla is also working hard on a third-generation platform for its models.
