When gas prices are rising, the demand for electric and hybrid cars is incredibly high. Used Teslas have never been so popular and are already sold out in many Indianapolis dealerships. Fortunately, at Indy Auto Man, we have new arrivals each week. Check what electric and hybrid cars are available for sale right now!
If you were waiting for a new Tesla Model 2, be ready for some bad news. Elon Musk announced that they are not currently working on this model, as they have enough on their plate right now. Moreover, the automaker won’t start building new models in 2022 because there is still a shortage of parts.
Here, at Indy Auto Man, we always keep abreast of changes in the car market and see that many drivers in Indianapolis are waiting for a new low-cost electric car called Tesla Model 2. The car was planned to go on sale soon and compete with models such as the Nissan Leaf, Volkswagen ID.3, and Kia e-Niro. However, now the release of Model 2 is postponed indefinitely.
The Tesla Model 2 electric car was expected to cost around $25,000, with the company’s best-selling vehicle, the Tesla Model 3, priced around $46,000 in base trim for the date of publication. The Tesla Model 2 electric car equipped with a new battery was planned to drive at least 250 miles without recharging.
The new hatchback was to mark the transition from the premium electric vehicle segment to a more affordable category. Previously, the company had achieved great success with the compact Model 3 sedan in the US and around the world.
Tesla has officially announced the postponement of the Cybertruck electric pickup production from 2022 to 2023, as the company strives to make it more affordable. Thus, the top management confirmed the rumors that have been circulating in recent weeks about another delay.
Information had already appeared that the manufacturer had postponed the Cybertruck debut. However, the car’s appearance announcement had been expected at the beginning of this year. The reasons for such terms adjustments can be global problems with a shortage of semiconductors and logistics or purely engineering miscalculations and difficulties with a unique exoskeleton frame. At the same time, there are also production problems – the development of the Model Y crossover at the new Gigafactory Texas plant, where the Cybertruck should be assembled. Now all forces have been put into launching a popular model to meet the existing demand.
The company still suffers from supply-chain issues, so Tesla was forced to raise the price of their models earlier this month. And while Musk hopes to make their cars more affordable by the following year, you can save a couple of thousand already today by choosing a used model.
