Time for Tesla’s 3 Series rival

THIS could be the world’s first electric BMW M3 rival. Tesla is rumoured to be preparing to unveil its smallest vehicle yet, the BMW 3 Series-sized Model 3, at the Geneva motor show in March. While the car itself has been confirmed for some time, its arrival has not.

The Model 3 will use batteries produced in Tesla’s new US ‘gigafactory’ in Nevada.

Hitting showrooms in 2017, it’s expected to have a ‘Ludicrous’ mode, a feature recently added to the Model S that enables a stunning 0-100km/h time of 2.8sec.
