‘Billionaire’ Elon Musk says his Tesla Model 3 sedan could be the fastest car ever built
Elon Musk is predicting a new Tesla Model III, the electric sedan that could be faster than anything ever made before, and that could eventually reach 300 miles per hour.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday, Musk said that he expects the Model III to be more than 300 miles an hour (400 kilometers per hour) on a single charge, which is faster than a car built by a major automaker.
Musk, the billionaire founder of PayPal and SpaceX, says he thinks he could reach 300 km/h on the first charge.
That would be a record.
In a speech earlier in the day, Musk also said that his Model 3 could reach 200 miles per charge, though he said that it would need a battery pack that is bigger and more powerful than the current model.”
It will be faster, but not as fast as a car that is 100 percent electrified.”

Tesla is working on an upgraded version of its Model 3 that would be able to reach 300 kilometers per charge.
Musk has said that the Model 3 will be built with a new battery pack, though no official date has been given.
A Tesla spokesperson said that Musk had been asked about his comments on Twitter and had not responded.
Tesla has had a rough year with sales of its cars and electric cars falling short of expectations.
The company has also been hit by several high-profile safety issues, including a fatal crash in California last month that killed seven people and injured scores of others.
The California crash was the worst to occur in California since the 1980s.
