While Tesla has not yet revealed any mechanical specifications for the dual motor Model 3, the range-topping small vehicle will offer upscaled performance much like the larger Model S and Model X, both of which now only offer dual motor layouts.

Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said. Police believe speed played a role and that the autopilot function was likely not switched on at the time of the accident. We've explored many technologies and opted for the combination of a hands-on-wheel torsion sensor with visual and audio alerts, and we will of course continue to evaluate new technologies as we evolve the Tesla fleet over time.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are also looking into the performance of the company's Autopilot system in the March crash of a Tesla Model X on a California highway.
