Tesla Model 3 battery output revealed

EPA docs reveal how Tesla's long-range Model 3 covers 310 miles

Musk offhandedly dismissed concerns about Tesla Model 3 cancellations - orders now stand at about 455,000 compared to Musk's proclamations to the press of about 513,000 preorders - as inconsequential and that original numbers were "just a guess". Not major for a mainstream automaker - but clearly incredible for a company that only sells electric cars.

The Gold Coast Bulletin reported this week it received a text message claiming an unnamed athlete has spent "many nights" at the actress' Gold Coast address as she continues to film Aquaman Down Under. Another interesting fact is the model may not be called Y - thus killing off the S3XY nomenclature joke. It's betting itself on the Model 3 moonshot, but de-risking the bet by taking out an insurance policy in the form of a $1.5 billion debt offering.

Tesla Model S and X previously had the HW 2.0 platform which was backed by Nvidia's Drive PX2. That's the conclusion of analysts combing through terms of the company's plan to raise $1.5 billion with its debut offering in the junk-bond market.

The end of Amber and Elon's romance has shocked many, especially since the Justice League beauty appeared to have bonded well with the Tesla Motors founder's sons from his previous marriage to Justine Musk, who he divorced in 2008.

The tactics worked, as noteholders are proving willing to overlook the company's negative cash flow and its repeated trips to capital markets to bolster its balance sheet. As the Reuters brand for financial commentary, we dissect the big business and economic stories as they break around the world every day.

The capital raise comes sooner than some expected.

In 1996, Murray's Panthers won the Eastern Conference before getting swept in the Stanley Cup Finals by the Colorado Avalanche . His nephew, Tim, spent time in the Ducks organization and served as Buffalo's GM from 2014-17.

Tesla had issued four convertible bonds to date - the company now has US$3.3bn outstanding - but it has never before accessed the public unsecured bond market.

The information is especially important to investors who are attempting to estimate the cost of the Model 3 in an attempt to model ways that Tesla can achieve its targeted 25% gross margin on the vehicle.

The battery in the Tesla Model 3 Long Range delivers an EPA-estimated 310 miles of range.

Tesla's unsecured notes will rank bondholders similarly to their convertible-bond counterparts, though they won't reap the same upside reward should the Model 3, or any other success, propel the stock even further.
