“It would have been better to just design an SUV the way an SUV should be designed. Design a sedan, the way a sedan should be designed. Otherwise, you would just try to shoehorn something that doesn’t make sense,” said Musk at the annual Tesla shareholders meeting in reference to using the Model S platform as the base for the Model X. The move is also expected to reduce expenses between the Model 3 and Model Y by a factor of two.
Finally, Tesla assured everyone that the Model 3 is on track to begin production in July.
