People have spotted a new prototype vehicle in the last few days, and interestingly, it has some of Elon Musk’s Tesla design features.

Fans predict it as a test vehicle for the upcoming “Tesla Model 2,” a $25,000 electric car.

Customers are longing for this as Tesla has been buzzing about a new cheaper model for years.

Hence, Tesla may reveal the first vehicle to use its next-generation platform next week.

People are also spotting a new prototype vehicle in China, and it also has a Tesla design. However, the car design seems confusing.

It has Tesla features like headlights, wheels, and front-end, but it also looks like a Mazda CX-30 body.

Tesla never uses camouflage like this, but the automaker is creating a new vehicle in China.

We should expect Elon Musk to have new ways of doing things.

In 2020, the company announced plans to create a new R&D center in China to create “a Chinese-style” electric car.

Afterward, Tesla started receiving design submissions for its Chinese-made electric car that summer.

Elon Musk explained it would be an electric car “designed and built in China.” In China, the suspected prototype is being reported as a new “Tesla Model 2.”
