Model X: Tesla plans to start delivering the Model X later this month, three and a half years after it started taking deposits on the all-electric, seven-seat crossover.
With "falcon wing" doors that open upward, an easily accessible third row of seats and towing capabilities, the Model X falls somewhere between a minivan and an SUV. Tesla intends to minimize technical hiccups by avoiding major powertrain changes, so the motor and battery lineup will closely mirror that of the Model S.
Model 3: Tesla's mass-market aspirations rest on the Model 3 sedan, which will be the size of a BMW 3 series with an electric range around 200 miles and a starting price around $35,000. It will use a shorter platform than the Model S and Model X do.
Tesla plans to unveil a Model 3 prototype in March and begin production in the second half of 2017, with deliveries ramping up steeply in 2018. The base car will have one motor, but buyers will be able to pay more for a dual-motor awd setup.
Tesla plans to borrow from the Model S and Model X to speed the Model 3 to market. For instance, the company already has a motor in its parts bin that produces a suitable 257 hp. (The dual-motor Model S 70D and 85D use one over each axle.) An updated version of that motor will power the Model 3.
Model 3 crossover: Tesla intends to use its Model 3 platform for a crossover variant, just as the Model S platform provided the underpinnings of the Model X. Expect a compact crossover roughly the size of a BMW X3 to hit the market in 2018 or 2019.
Roadster: Tesla has promised to offer another sports car as an heir to the Roadster, the Lotus-based two-seater that Tesla sold until 2011 as its first product. It remains near and dear to Musk, who often drives his personal Roadster to work and recharges it in the lobby of Tesla's headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif.
A new Roadster is scheduled to be built on the Model 3 platform starting in 2019. Musk has promised a mode called "maximum plaid" -- a nod to the Mel Brooks comedy Spaceballs -- that will allow the Roadster to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2.8 seconds. But a sports car won't do much to help Tesla hit its goal of selling 500,000 cars annually by 2020, so don't be surprised if this project slips into the next decade.
