This week we get our best look yet at the Model 3’s interior as video surfaces of the vehicle being put through performance testing on Tesla’s Fremont track. Tesla streamlines ordering with a new configurator as the company confirms Model 3 wheel options, an optional Glass Roof, and coil suspension.

Hyundai’s upcoming all-electric long-range SUV is said to start at ~$39,000. Mercedes is reportedly planning to unveil a relatively affordable all-electric hatchback with long range.

And Tesla’s solar roof tiles get approved for permitting and installations as the US notifies world of possible ‘safeguard’ tariffs on imported solar cells.
