Almost everything about Tesla's new car has leaked

Tesla has managed to keep its much awaited Model 3 under wraps before its big reveal Thursday, but a new report by Electrek has given us all the information we’ve been waiting for.

The biggest news to come out of the report is that a version of the Model 3 will offer a range that exceeds 300 miles. That’s huge for a car that will start at a consumer-friendly price point of $35,000 MSRP, but there’s a caveat: Electrek says that range will be reserved for a higher-end Model 3 with a price tag in the $50,000 to $60,000 range.

The report also notes that the Model 3 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds.

Finally, the car will have Autopilot, the semi-autonomous driving mode Tesla launched last year in the Model S. But like that 300-mile range, those features will be reserved for those willing to shell out $50,000 to $60,000, Electrek reports.

Tesla’s Autopilot comes with features like automatic braking, lane switching, and blind spot warnings.

Electrek got the tip from a source that provided reliable information for a leak on the Tesla P85D.

A spokesperson from Tesla wouldn’t confirm Electrek’s report or add any further details, telling Tech Insider that Tesla doesn’t “comment on speculation.”

For comparison, the Tesla Model S starts at $70,000. The lower-end model, the 70D, has a range of 240 miles and can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.2 seconds. The Model S P90D will get you a 253-mile range and can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds while in ludicrous mode.

The Model X starts at $75,000 and makes it way up to a whopping $132,000 for its signature model. The lower-end model, the 70D, has a range of 220 miles and can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 6 seconds. But the Model X P90D can reach that same acceleration in 3.2 seconds in ludicrous mode and has a range of 250 miles.

The big question: What will the Model 3 actually look like? We’ll find out at 11 p.m. Eastern Thursday when Tesla makes its big announcement.
