Amber Heard And Elon Musk Set The Record Straight On Their Breakup

Details elsewhere are scant, but we understand the Model Y will ditch the complex and expensive "Falcon" doors fitted to the £80,000 Model X SUV and should be closer in price and size to the Model 3 saloon.

Typically, a bond offering will flag the company's most important asset and cap the amount of secured debt that can be tied to it, according to Diaz-Matos. Let's say you placed an order for the Model 3 back in November past year.

Tesla has said it secured at least 455,000 preorders and that 1,800 new reservations are coming in every day.

Tesla announced the bond sale earlier this week, though CEO Elon Musk made it known last week that the company was considering using debt markets to raise cash to bring its mass market Model 3 electric auto to market. On her return, Musk is alleged to have let her go. While Tesla workers have talked of unionization before, the increased strain of "production hell" may add new urgency to that debate, the website reports. Being an SUV means four-wheel drive is likely, although those after a truly capable electric vehicle may be better off waiting for the forthcoming Tesla pickup, which is also understood to be in development.

Tesla investors are confident the company can scale up appropriately to meet the 500,000 vehicle production target for next year and one million in 2020.

Originally, it was thought the only change to Autopilot hardware for the new Model 3 was the addition of a driver-facing camera.

If Tesla doesn't fund for the unexpected, CEO Elon Musk may lose the company. Tesla anticipates the addition of Model 3 production this year will eventually lift plant volume to almost 500,000 vehicles a year.

Musk took issue with that, saying "Of all the bogus anecdotes, this one troubles me the most". The electric vehicle marker's negative free cash flow came to $1.2 billion in the second quarter - almost double the negative $622 million in the previous quarter. By selling bonds now, Musk can raise cash for Model 3 production without diluting equity holders.

Musk told analysts that the Model Y's production plan will be a step apart from what Tesla - or the rest of the industry - is now doing.
