Tesla Reveals Model Y ‘Baby SUV’ Tonight: How To Watch Live
The CEO also remarked that the Model Y could achieve 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, and he added that the vehicle would have a very low center of gravity, as is common in most electric vehicles with batteries under their floor. The Model X - revealed in prototype form back in 2012, and in production from 2015 - is referred to by the company as an SUV.
Built on the Model 3 " s platform, it's the fifth vehicle from Tesla since the Roadster kicked things off in 2008.
Tesla Model Y
"The biggest surprise was Model Y initial shipments will begin in the fall of 2020, a year later than we had anticipated". We await the inevitable trio of Models B, O, and I for a real "90s nostalgia moment".
The Model Y was unveiled on a livestream event held by the pioneering EV maker, in the most anticipated unveilings of a vehicle since, well, the "mass-market" Model 3 that was unveiled three years ago and has sold almost 150,000 models since. The market is going insane for crossovers, particularly mid-sized crossovers, and that is right where the Model Y fits. Another $4k gets the Dual Motor Y, with the Performance topping the range at $60k. The Model Y Performance, with the Long Range and Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive variants to follow. However, the Standard Range won't make an appearance until Spring 2021. There will be three more models.
Still, Musk said the Model Y could outsell the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 combined. With its extra get-up-and-go the Performance model will offer "only" 280 miles of range. However, it will snap to 60 in just 4.8 seconds and carry on all the way to 135mph. Especially when you consider the price difference between the 3 and the Y is as slim as $2,000, the Model 3 seems unnecessary, even obsolete with the launch of the Y crossover. But as its name suggests, you do get an incredibly quick compact crossover. Another pressing concern is federal tax credits, which are phasing out for Tesla this year.
"Because of extreme challenges with the Model 3 production, we have to basically allocate all resources to Model 3 production, because otherwise we're going to die", Musk said with a chuckle, eliciting laughs from the crowd. Two additional seats can be had for an additional $3,000 starting from 2021.
The Model-Y comes in four options, and each is designed with a specific user in mind.
Musk also said the Model Y will be powered by the same battery as the Model 3. If the Model Y does away with Tesla's trademark consumer-pleasing uniqueness without improving its efficiency with investor capital, the Model Y could signal the beginning of the end of an automaker that will make a fascinating case study for generations. not with a bang, but with a whimper. Deliveries for the compact crossover won't start until the autumn of 2020.
