Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has revealed via his Twitter account that the wheelbase of the upcoming Model 3 compact sedan will limit its battery capacity to less than 100 kWh.
Musk also indicated that while Tesla’s semi-trailer and possibly even its pickup truck will require increased battery capacities that there are no plans to provide a corresponding increase for its full-size Model S sedan or Model X crossover.
Musk’s comments follow his recent confirmation that 100D and P100D editions of the entry level sedan are not planned.
Expect additional details on the Model 3 to be available as the unit ramps up for production later this year.
