Does the Tesla Model Y make the Model 3 a Model 'Why?'

Tesla Reveals Model Y ‘Baby SUV’ Tonight: How To Watch Live

San Francisco - Tesla pulled the covers off its much-awaited Model Y electric crossover vehicle on Thursday, promising that it will be a formidable rival to the new wave of electric SUVs emanating from Europe.

Was the Tesla Model 3 the wrong auto all along? (£26,400). This is also when seven-seat models will go on sale, with just five seats available from launch. While that vehicle won't be available until spring 2021, the long-range real-wheel drive ($47,000), dual-motor all-wheel drive ($51,000), and performance ($60,000) models are due in fall 2020.

As to the technical data and prices of the Model Y; According to Tesla, the basic version "Standard Range" will cost 39,000 United States dollars (net price). The latter also applies to the $60,000 performance version of the all-wheel-drive Model Y, which is up to 150 miles per hour (241 km/h) fast and should sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. The Model Y comes standard with seating for 5, however, you can seat up to 7 with an optional third row ($3,000 option, available in 2021).

CEO and founder Elon Musk believes that demand for the Model Y could outstrip the Model 3, which has proven itself by a very long yard the most popular EV of 2018 and became the USA's best-seller in its segment late previous year.

Musk even said in discussing the panoramic roof that the Model Y "feels just like the Model 3" inside.

With production planned for the US and China, Tesla Musk predicted that the Model Y would soon outsell the rest of the company's cars combined. The 0-60 time is on par with supercars at 3.5 seconds and the top speed raises to 150mph. Its exteriors boast of a similar fascia as seen on the Model 3.

The first, more expensive Model Y will have a range of 300 miles (482 km).

Elon did mention that Tesla Y as well as other Teslas will get an autopilot featured with self-driving later this year without going into any specifics.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk expects to sell more Model Y units than Model 3, Model S and Model X combined.

Tesla's recurring production and delivery problems have resulted in consumers having to wait longer than they were originally told.

The cheaper version of the new vehicle starts with a battery that will last drivers for up to 230 miles.

As I pointed out in my first article about the surprises, the reveal of the Model Y was the first time that I feel like Tesla acted fully like a major automaker for an announcement. This time it was a sport-utility vehicle dubbed the Model Y. Production is expected to begin next year - we're strengthening our neck muscles in anticipation already. Cheers and whoops went up from the crowd as a shiny blue vehicle pulled into its place alongside the Model S, 3, X. Deposits can be made for $2500, a notable hike over the $1000 deposit required to get in line for a Model 3 when it was announced.
