The news site says Musk revealed during a conference call hosted by Goldman Sachs for bondholders that the Model 3 will have a pack just over 50 kWh with a range of about 220 miles, and a “long-range” version with a 75 kWh pack good for about 310 miles.
The Gold Coast Bulletin reported this week it received a text message claiming an unnamed athlete has spent “many nights” at the actress’ Gold Coast address as she continues to film Aquaman Down Under. “Ashlee Vance’s biography is mostly correct, but also rife with errors and never independently fact-checked, despite my request that he do so”, Musk said, adding: “Of all the bogus anecdotes, this one troubles me the most”.

That represents a massive increase over Tesla’s current production rate-and it may aggravate tensions with workers, according to the The Daily Beast.
The electric vehicle maker revolves around constant iteration, but it also has to meet the expectations of customers who bought expensive add-ons assuming they’d eventually get full self-driving features.
“There will be nothing close to it”, he hinted, although providing no details.
