Elon Musk: Tesla Model 3 dual motor will release in July 2018

In a recent announcement made via series of tweets, electric vehicle maker Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk said that the new Model 3 with dual motor all-wheel-drive will likely be released by the company in July 2018.

Tesla has officially planned the release of the new Model 3 powertrain in “mid-2018,” Musk’s projections of the July release of the vehicle have been linked with Tesla’s achievement of a production rate of 5,000 Model 3 units per week. Tesla has revealed in a last-week announcement that it is currently producing nearly 2,000 Model 3 units per week.

Musk’s projections about a July release of the new Model 3 dual motor is also linked with the launch of the Model 3 white interior. As of now, Tesla offers only one interior option with black upholstery.

With the Model 3 presently available with a rear-wheel-drive motor and ‘Long Range’ battery pack, the dual motor powertrain design of the Model 3 was leaked earlier this year in the latest design studio update.

On the heels of the Model 3 dual motor powertrain design leak, reports had revealed that Tesla’s then-latest batch of new VINs comprised the registration of 19 Model 3 VINs with dual motor powertrain with NHTSA. After that, in February, a new batch of Model 3 VINs was registered by Tesla including 24 Model 3 VINs with the dual motor powertrain.
