If you've been waiting to get a glimpse of the final Tesla Model 3, this summer can't come soon enough. CEO Elon Musk told a fan on Twitter today that the final unveil for the company's more affordable electric vehicle will be this July. Production has been on track to begin during the summer months for a while, but this marks the first time we know when you'll be able to see an actual production Model 3, not just a prototype.

Musk is rolling hard on Twitter today with a few other big announcements, too. You can plan for a new Tesla semi truck this September, and the company's anticipated Roadster to arrive as a convertible. That's all in addition to a new Tesla pickup truck that's slated to be revealed in the next 18-24 months.

Tesla has a lot going on right now, and it's not just cars. The company'smove into solar power, for example, is pretty fascinating. All these new reveals should serve to raise consumer's hopes to a fever pitch. Even knowing that there will be a massive wait list can't dampen our desire to see what the company has in the works.


Tesla Model 3 'release candidate' drives off the lot

As Tesla continues its march towards producing a mass-market electric vehicle, CEO Elon Musk gave us a brief glimpse at the latest prototype.This Vine-length clip showed the first drive of a "release candidate" Model 3. Autoblog explains that unless there's some unforeseen problem, it's unlikely there will be any major styling or content revisions from this before the car goes into production, but engineers can still test and tweak things like brake calibration.


Musk didn't stop there, however, also tweeting that a performance version of the Model 3 with dual motors and all-wheel-drive is likely to arrive next year, around the same time as right hand-drive models for the UK. Despite the Model 3's lighter weight, it will also pack a smaller 75kWh battery, which means even the performance model will still trail the Model S in acceleration. That would leave the Model S as the EV speed king until the next-gen Roadster launches in a few years, which is the same window given for Tesla's mass-market SUV, the Model Y.


If you've already jumped on the pre-order list for a Model 3, Musk says you will be able to wait and get first access to the dual-motor performance "D" versions when they're available.
