Tesla’s model ramp-up is looking rapid indeed, as Franz von Holzhausen, the electric vehicle maker’s chief designer, talked to British publication Autocar of a new model planned for 2015 to compete with the BMW 3-series. Tesla’s Model S, the first car it built from the ground up, began deliveries to customers just last month. Tesla also showed off a new concept, the Model X crossover, earlier this year, which enters production at the end of 2013.

Von Holzhausen said Tesla would target a price of $30,000 for the BMW 3 competitor, and would experiment with more-radical styling. Car and Driver posted some additional reporting on the original story, confirming the new model with a Tesla spokesperson, also garnering the detail that Tesla would eventually build a successor to the Roadster.
