It looks like one sweet ride. Much lower price point than the Model S.
Tesla’s design guru stated that this vehicle, which is often referred to as the Tesla Model C (C is for compact), would feature distinctive styling and a target base price of approximately $30,000.
Time for Nissan to step up their game. What do you guys think, as in are they up to it ?

That would be a fast moving target, going up constantly.

Sketched by an intern ... when was the last time an automaker used that as the basis of an important car ?

The Pontiac Aztek? Oh wait, whoever designed that is still in protective custody.

You need a certain amount of experience to make anything practical. An intern might come up with a nice idea for a website ... car design is a different matter all together.

This is the kind of "Premium Compact" design that would put me in a Tesla. S and X are just too much car for my taste.

I am with you on that one. I look forward to the day when we can compare the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, and Tesla Model C. Compare price vs range vs everything else.
