Tesla planning new compact SUV model for 2013

American electric car maker Tesla has announced that it will be introducing an all-electric crossover utility vehicle in 2013.

Seeking brand expansion beyond its current model lineup of the Tesla Roadster and the upcoming Model S sedan, Tesla is developing electric car products clearly targeting the mass market.

But the California-based company may not be quite as ambitious as they initially seem.

Tesla is currently in a partnership with Daimler to supply electric vehicle technology to be used in its vehicles like the Mercedes A-Class and the Smart brand’s range. It does appear more likely that Tesla technology will see a greater road presence in the future through a partner alliance rather than its own products.
