Tesla unveiled its latest electric car, the Model 3, almost a year ago, but Elon Musk today provided a peek at an almost-final version of the vehicle.
Musk posted a short video to Twitter Friday showing a “release candidate version” of the Model 3. As you can see below, this thing can accelerate with a quickness.

Musk also today clarified something: The Model 3 isn’t a successor to the Model S. Instead, he wrote, “Model 3 is just a smaller, more affordable version of Model S w less range & power & fewer features,” and clarified that the “Model S has more advanced technology.”
