Tesla Says Report Of Model 3 Leak Based 'Purely On Speculation'

Shares of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) were trading lower by around 1 percent Wednesday afternoon ahead of the much-anticipated unveiling of its Model 3 sedan.

Electrek, citing "a source who has seen the design that will be shown off tomorrow," the Model 3 sedan "looks like a smaller hybrid of the Model X and S." The source added that the vehicle is "a bit taller sedan with a unique front."

Electrek added that its source claimed that the Model 3 has a 0-60 speed of under 4 seconds. The higher end Model 3 sedan could have a price tag in the $50,000 to $60,000 range but comes equipped with an AWD option and a battery that can last 300 miles per charge, it added.

In a comment to Benzinga, Tesla said, "per usual, Electrek reports purely on speculation and we don't comment on speculation."
