Elon Musk Fires Back At SEC in New Defense

The last presentation took place at the end of previous year in Los Angeles. Since the SUV will be built using a majority of the Model 3's existing parts, that could make it easier for Tesla to get some production-ready vehicles out the door more quickly.

The company could think about the profitability in Q2.According to the company, the Model 3 base model will feature a top speed of 130 miles per hour and can speed up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 5.6 seconds. He therefore reasoned that the demand for Model y will be 50% higher than model Y.
