When it comes to some specific details, we don’t know so many and reliable things at this point. What is certain is that this vehicle has the silver paint and red brake calipers, and if you remember, the last prototype unveiled in March 2016 has exactly the same paint and brake calipers. Also, the newly vehicle will have a similar license to the one seen in the last prototype. Furthermore, this model will most likely use the same aluminum wheels with a 10-spoke design. At this point, we don’t know its size. Also, everything else about this model is based on the rumors.

Engine and Performance
The approaching new Tesla Model 3 Prototype will most likely provide 100 kWh battery pack as well as dual-motor powertrain. According to Company, this model will accelerate from 0-60 mph in the range from 5.7-5.9 seconds. However, the performance-oriented dual-motor option can hit 60 mph in just 4 seconds. This model should provide 215 miles range from the base battery pack. Tesla also said that the 100 kWh is not doable for a rather plain. Why? Because of the short wheelbase (it is too short compared to the Tesla Model S).
When it comes to releasing date, this model is already presented and we can expect the beginning of its production in July 2017. Speaking of prices, we, unfortunately, don’t have pieces of information about that. However, curent Model 3 is aroud $35,000, the latest one shouldn’t be in the similar price range.
