The Fayton, inspired by the natural (horse) and human (carriage) components of the phaeton horse-drawn buggy of the 19th century, is a project aimed at providing comfortable transportation with a minimal carbon footprint. The EV’s most noticeable features are its transparent body and large glass canopy that provides a 360 degree view outside. The sunroof is made of four glass pieces that, when open, fold back and resemble a horses mane.
Tesla's $35,000 car will be called the Model 3, and will come out in 2017. Theoretically it will have a range of over 200 miles; I am definitely interested. Wonder how many passengers it will take -- you can get up to 7 people in the Tesla S.
