The Model S is Tesla’s most expensive car yet, but the electric-car maker still has plenty of work to do before its battery pack is ready for mass production.
The company says its new battery pack, which it has dubbed the Model 3, will deliver a car with a range of up to 100,200 miles.
That means it can go from New York City to San Francisco in less than three hours, with plenty of room for extended trips.
But for the rest of the world, the Model S will still need a lot more work before it can compete with the Tesla Model X SUV, the world’s best-selling electric car.
For that, the company is doubling down on its engineering team.
The company has hired around 100 engineers, including two engineers at Tesla’s Fremont, Calif., manufacturing plant.
The job will be a mix of high-performance engineers, who will work on battery systems and software, and those who can work on design, marketing and sales.
The goal is to have the engineers produce the Model III by the end of 2019, Musk said.
Tesla is still not sure how much the new battery will cost, but Musk said he’s optimistic it will be competitive with existing battery packs from other automakers.
That will be important to Tesla, which has been struggling to sell its new Model S and Model X luxury SUVs to the public, with the Model X being the only one that can be sold in North America.
Musk has previously said the Model 5 would have a price tag of $100,000.
Tesla expects the Model 7, the next generation of the Model 4, to cost around $100 a car, and Musk expects a price point of around $120,000 for the Model Y. Tesla also expects to sell some of its other vehicles at a discount, so the Model P will be cheaper than the Model Z and X, but still cheaper than some other luxury vehicles.
The Model 3 will have the most battery capacity in a sedan, Musk added, and will also be able to accelerate faster than other vehicles, like the Chevrolet Volt.
The Model 3’s battery will be designed so it can handle up to 80 miles per hour in a city, Musk noted.
Musk added that the Model 2 had a maximum range of 70 miles, and it would be “a great car” if Tesla could build a more powerful battery.
The new battery system will be assembled by Tesla’s Gigafactory, which is the largest factory in the world for batteries.
That’s where Tesla makes all of its batteries, and the company says it’s currently assembling a new battery unit every six hours.
The factory has been built for decades and was recently upgraded.
Tesla is also currently building a battery plant in the Mojave Desert that Musk said would produce 1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per day, enough to power 1 million homes.
That plant will be completed in 2019, and Tesla expects it to produce at least 100 megawatts of electricity annually, or enough to produce a full-scale power plant of more than 1 million megawatts.
Musker said Tesla has a lot of engineers working on the Model E, which will also have a high-power battery and a range that will exceed the Model 1.
The battery will feature a battery pack that is more powerful than the ones in the Model 0 and Model 1, but also more energy dense than the one Tesla has now.
Musk said that it will also “go toe-to-toe” with the next-generation Tesla Roadster.
The Tesla Roadsters will have more powerful batteries than the cars that will eventually be built in Tesla’s battery factory in Nevada.
Tesla plans to release a new, smaller battery pack in 2019 that will be able get up to 30 miles per charge, and then it will “build it up to the next battery pack size,” Musk said, before explaining that he expects the new batteries to cost about $30,000 each.
