If the Tesla lineup is now expanding with the Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y, not to mention the long-awaited Cybertruck and Roadster, the brand doesn’t have enough power yet. And for good reason, it has been promising us for years The arrival of an affordable model under the $35,000 mark. However, the cheapest car in the series is currently the Model Y, which starts at €49,990 in the Propulsion version. We are still far from Elon Musk’s promise.

But everything suggests that the businessman did not put aside his project, on the contrary. Last September, a Tesla official confirmed that the Texas-based brand plans to release a cheaper model than the Model Y, which will share its platform with the manufacturer’s future autonomous taxi. A half-word announcement confirmed a few months later by two new clues.
During the key-handover ceremony of the Tesla Semi, a video revealed the arrival of the Robotaxis hidden under a tarp. However, we do know that it will have the same underbody as the affordable compact.

Release scheduled for 2024
No further details have been released by the manufacturer yet, probably more will be revealed in the coming months. Nevertheless, the venture capital company Loup Ventures seems quite knowledgeable and gives us a few additional details. The company claims this in its forecasts for 2023 Tesla will wait until 2024 to unveil the Model 2. According to him, ” if the company announces its low-cost car too soon, it risks slowing Model 3 sales.“.
