Tesla’s Model III goes 200 miles per charge
: I drive a 2012 original Tesla model S so I promise I speak from experience. All states give you at least $7,500 back on new electric or hybrid car purchases on your taxes (so if you owe 8,000 in taxes – you’ll only pay 500) Some give you as much as $12,000 back.
“I think we’re going to try to do something more radical,” says Elon Musk, creator of Tesla Motors, whose charging stations will power your Tesla for free, forever. This one, the Model III could be available in 2016, but more likely the middle or end of 2017. It’s 20% lighter than the Model S and much cheaper.
The $35,000 price tag slashes the $60,000+ price of the Model S.

It will charge in just over 25 minutes and run 200 miles; Tesla’s goal to build a cheap electric car is coming true at an accelerated pace
Tesla is attempting to focus attention on the Model S and the new Model X (Tesla’s version of a minivan), because those are the ones you can buy now, but the Model III will be an indisputable game changer.
