Elon Musk said recently his company is considering introducing a smaller car in its third electronic vehicle platform anticipated to be more affordable to manufacture.
Musk pointed out this new development during Tesla’s Q3 2022 earning, noting that the next platform will be smaller than the current compact one and would cost roughly half of the Model 3 architecture.

Tesla recalls 300,000 vehicles in the U.S.
The news of the opening of Tesla’s first dealership in Greece comes as the American manufacturer announced it is recalling more than three hundred thousand vehicles in the U.S. because a software glitch can make taillights go off intermittently, increasing the risk of a collision.
The recall covers certain 2020 to 2023 Model Y SUVs as well as 2023 Model 3 sedans. That amounts to a potential 321,628 vehicles.
Tesla became aware of the problem last month after receiving complaints, primarily from customers outside of the U.S., that their vehicle taillamps were not illuminating. The company completed an investigation into the problem earlier this month.
