Tesla Motors today outed its newest vehicle plans, a smaller car called the Model 3, that Auto Express reports is designed squarely to take on BMWs 3 series. According to the report — which Tesla confirmed today — the vehicle will be 20 percent smaller than the Model S, and go more than 200 miles on a charge. The Model 3 will be properly unveiled in 2016, with sales beginning the following year, Auto Express says. Its a crossover that falls somewhere between a sedan and a sport utility vehicle, and fits up to seven passengers. In an interview with Auto Express, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk said the name for the Model 3 stemmed back to a legal entanglement with Ford, which threatened to sue Tesla over a trademark for Model E.
