So far, though, unlike with iOS and Android devices, nobody seems capable of catching up to Tesla – let alone surpass them. That's a statement of the flagship prowess of the Tesla Model X and S Plaids, as well as the hyped mass-market appeal showcased by the Model 3 and Model Y. And, remember, they haven't even started deliveries of the long-awaited Cybertruck model.
Anyway, Tesla's recent price cuts have led the industry to believe that Musk's company is aiming for a veritable war for the sales crown, even at the expense of margins and profitability. And few – Ford immediately cut the price on the F-150 Lighting, and the stock crashed – have responded positively to the move. Well, that was until Fisker came out with its first-ever Product Vision Day (2023), where the company that sells the Ocean SUV revealed its new family of models – alongside the Ocean with Force E off-road package came the Ronin, PEAR, and Alaska.
Most importantly, while the Ronin acts as an image vector, the Alaska pickup truck is said to come in 2025 from just $45,400 while the PEAR – an acronym for Personal Electric Automotive Revolution, is a perspective six-seat crossover SUV aiming for a sub-$30k asking price! Of course, Tesla won't reply to that with an identical vehicle. So, what if they cooked up a third sedan, even more affordable than the Model 3?
That hypothetical vision is portrayed by Giorgi Tedoradze, a Georgia-based industrial designer better known as tedoradze.giorgi on social media, who continues to promote his alternative CGI Tesla style with this 'Model 2' vision. It's an even more traditional four-door than anything Tesla has done before, and yet it still caters to the company's design ethos – albeit with subtle digital changes.
Frankly, this idea doesn't sound bad at all – though only if Tesla could also match a sub-$30k tag when it comes out on the market. Maybe that will not be hard to achieve if they have a splash with the Cybertruck and all those hundreds of thousands of reservations turn into actual sale deals. Besides, the Model 3 can't go down too much on its own anymore, as it's already at $40,240 for the RWD model with a 272-mile range, zero to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph.
