The first sightings of Tesla Model 3 release candidates on public roads started this week after the Elon Musk released the first official images last month.
We had so far only seen a black vehicle, but it looks like Tesla is expanding its fleet for testing on public roads with a new blue prototype.
Tesla’s fleet of release candidates are used for testing internally the performance and production processes, but a few vehicles are also being tested on public roads – always not too far from Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto.
The new blue prototype was spotted on the 280 highway – again not too far from Tesla HQ.
Interestingly, the other release candidate didn’t feature any model badge or Tesla logo and while this blue release candidate still doesn’t have the rear badges, it features the usual Tesla logo on the rear-end.
