Tesla seeks $1.5 bn junk bond issue to fund Model 3 production

In the book, Vance said Musk gave his assistant a two-week leave when she asked him for a significant raise, during which time he would assess the nature of her duties.

Tesla announced the bond sale earlier this week, though CEO Elon Musk made it known last week that the company was considering using debt markets to raise cash to bring its mass market Model 3 electric vehicle to market.

Preliminary EPA documents, discovered by Inside EVs, show the Tesla Model 3 Long Range model utilizes a battery of 80.5 kilowatt-hours. "Allegedly, she is a fan of George Orwell and Ayn Rand ... most unusual".

In a statement, a Tesla spokesperson played down the significance of the new hardware. Up to this point, Tesla's business model has revolved around selling a relative handful of luxury vehicles.

As marchers began gathering near Emancipation Park, many could be seen brandishing white supremacist and Nazi regalia. Later in the evening, Trump praised law enforcement officers at the protest and offered his condolences to a victim.

The announcement on batteries follows the US EPA documents suggesting the Model 3 would come with a more powerful still 80kWh battery pack that would also be capable of covering around 500km.

For those who were interested in the Model 3 based on its $35,000 price tag, the Model S 75 is the next best bet, though it's still considerably expensive. Until now, Tesla's Fremont, Calif., plant has been turning out fewer than 100,000 sedans and crossovers a year.

A spokesperson for Tesla said the bonds will have to be repaid to investors in eight years, but the interest rate on offer has not yet been agreed upon.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives for Amber Heard and Elon Musk for comment.

Rep. Keith Ellison says Kim Jong Un 'acting more responsible' than Trump
The regime's recent military tests reveal that the entire continental United States with the exception of Florida may be in range of North Korean missiles.

Returning to some of the more damning anecdotes covered by the biography, Musk said: "There are dozens of bogus or half-true anecdotes [that] don't really matter and maybe five to 10 that do".

That has been a key issue for Tesla, which has a growing number of products coming out of a single factory. In addition, two pro-union employees recently spoke out about the potential dangers of the Model 3 production ramp.

At the launch, Musk, however, warned that Tesla would face months of "manufacturing hell" as it increases production of the sedan.

Future Tesla models understood to be in the works include an electric minibus, an electric HGV lorry and a second-generation Roadster - the original Tesla.
