A "performance" version of the Tesla Model 3 is due to arrive next year, founder Elon Musk has revealed.

Focus now is on getting out of Model 3 production hell."

While there's no mention of what differences a performance version would have over the standard Model 3, Electrek says it expects it to come with the regular car's 310-mile battery pack along with "a dual motor all-wheel-drive system".

The event also saw the confirmation of prices for the company's first mass-production saloon with The Verge reporting the entry-level Model 3 will go on the market for $35,000 (£27,000) while a version with a longer battery life will be priced at $44,000 (£34,000).

UK prices have yet to be announced and more details are expected when Tesla ramps up deliveries later this year.

Musk revealed the first production in July and it bares a striking resemblance to both the concept version and Tesla's range-topping Model S saloon.
