Tesla recently announced that it will dramatically reduce the cost of producing its production cells, which apparently means that the company now has a new goal … to launch a $ 25,000 electric car. That is, we will have an electric car equipped with new generation batteries, at a price that is seriously appealing!
In fact, according to Tesla itself, all the new technology being developed will allow lowering the cost of electric cars to more or less the price of ‘traditional’ combustion cars.
Tesla wants to put a € 25,000 electric car on the roads!
Therefore, a battery pack currently costs something like 10,000 ~ 12,000 $, depending on its capacity. So it is reasonable to say that cheaper packages will take the world of electric cars to a whole new world. After all, the manufacturer wants to reach an average price of $ 6000, which in turn will put the cost per kWh below $ 100.
However, if you don’t know, the cost of an electric car in the United States has been going down a lot from year to year! After all, in 2018, the average price was situated at $ 64,300, and in 2019 it was already at 55,600, down 13.4%. However, of course, this price is still slightly above the average price for a combustion car, which is somewhere between $ 30,000 and $ 35,000.
Will this new car be able to fulfill the mission that the Tesla Model 3 failed?
In case you didn’t know, the Model 3 was supposed to be the first electric car for the masses! By bringing a sporty pedigree, to convince consumers that electric vehicles are not just technology, they are also pure and hard speed. (That is, electric cars are ‘cool’)
However, the cheapest model in the Model 3 is not that cheap, and ended up arriving very late on the market … All due to several production problems of Tesla lines.
