Tesla Adding New Vehicle to Fleet in 2017

Tesla continues to change the landscape of EV fleets with its technology and in 2017 will make that technology more affordable.

The EV automaker plans to release the Model 3 and, unlike its siblings, the price tag will be far more attractive to many buyers. Currently, the Model S stars at $69,000 whereas the new Model 3 will begin at just $35,000, which is comparable to say a BMW 3 series.

Tesla boasts the longest-lasting electric battery on the market presently with an EPA-certified 265 miles per charge. The Model 3 will have a battery life of about 200 miles per charge. The automaker also has plans in the pipeline to install superchargers throughout 80 percent of the nation in addition to the 102 supercharging stations already in place.
