Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, basically went on a Twitter spree today and answered some questions fans had for him. In the process, the visionary confirmed that his company will unveil the final Model 3 come July. We expect more details on the $35,000 offering around this timeframe, but we do know it’ll be an affordable option for consumers, come with a 215-mile electric range, and begin shipping in late 2017. It’s also expected to enter increased production in 2018, aiding Tesla in reaching a manufacturing rate of 500,00 cars annually. We’ll obviously have more details in the future, so stay tuned.

Musk also confirmed the existence of an electric semi truck today that’ll be unveiled this September. He calls it “seriously next level.”

We also now know Tesla will announce a new electric pickup truck in the next 18 to 24 months.

Finally, Musk confirmed that the next roadster Tesla will introduce will be a convertible.

Fell free to let all of this news sink in for a second.
