Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has revealed that the automaker’s latest sedan will be called the Model III when it goes on sale in 2017. Both cheaper and smaller than the Model S, the Tesla Model III (or the easier to read “Model 3″) is expected to come with a price tag of around $35,000.

The much anticipated small Tesla sedan has been in the news for a while, but it was originally called the Model E. Ford sued Tesla since they had already filed a trademark for the Model E name. Also, since the Model E was going to be Tesla’s third car, after the Model S and X, several “SEX” jokes emerged.

Elon Musk has also confirmed that the Model III will be unveiled in 2016 before it goes on sale in 2017. The sedan is expected to be about 20 percent smaller than the Model S and Tesla estimates that it will have a range of over 200 miles.
