Tesla Motors Announces Fourth Car for Future Electric Vehicle Lineup

It’s been a great year so far for Tesla  – the electric automaker paid back its federal loan a full 9 years early , it announced plans to triple its supercharger stations , and it scooped the green car of the year award . Now CEO Elon Musk has announced plans to follow up on the company’s success with two additional vehicles – a small SUV and a lower-priced sedan that will hit the streets as early as 2015.
Currently the car company is focused on producing the Model S  sedan and the Model X, a crossover SUV that will go into production next year. “In about three to four years, that’s when we aspire to bring into production a sedan that’s about half the price of the Model S, and then shortly thereafter a small SUV as well,” says Musk. “These should be quite affordable. The price would be on the order of $35,000.” Tesla has been in the news lately after posting its first profit in the company’s 10-years and promptly paying off its federal loan  nine years early.
