The Tesla D is coming very soon but what is it? Tesla CEO Elon Musk has teased today that the company's upcoming "D" car will be unveiled next week, on October 9th.
Musk said nothing more than "about time to unveil the D and something else" while adding a teaser photo.

It is still unclear what the D will be, and especially what the "something else" will be, although there have been numerous rumors.

Tesla has been long rumored to be introducing a "budget sedan" or a smaller SUV, either of which can be the aforementioned D.

My only issue with Elon Musk is how casually he throws around the word budget. At least in Canada these cars are very expensive and I am sure it's no different in the US market. What savings you do get from not having to do the unique maintenance gas/oil vehicles use doesn't even = out to being that more efficient over the long haul.

Still I'm curious about Tesla's vehicle line-up and how they intend to compete in the future.

A 35K model of this type of car might be the same as buying Rayovacs over Energizers or Duracell. Not a risk I'm will to take! And I ain't buyin' that car at 80K here ever.

To be fair, these cars aren't expensive in the market they are meant to compete in (BMW's and their ilk). Like any bleeding edge technology it's going to be more $$$ than I care to shell out. Elon Musk seems to be a pretty straight shooter and he says his plan is to make the technology affordable. I don't see any reason to disbelieve him, but I'm not holding my breath nor am I buying an $80k car.

At $55K- I will probably go for it.
