Tesla Model Y: What We Know

  • The Tesla Model Y will start at $39,000

The event at the electric auto company's Los Angeles design studio will give the public a first look at the vehicle, a hybrid between a auto and an SUV. Elon Musk says its range will be roughly 10 per cent less than equivalent Model 3 variants.

Its launch will complete the company founder's joke of having a "sexy" range of cars.

Underpinning the "baby" SUV will be the same platform as the Tesla Model 3 and according to some, the Model Y will share roughly 75 per cent of its parts with its sedan sibling.

Musk said more detailed specs and pricing will be available at the Thursday reveal event.

Tesla says that the Model Y will be about 10 percent larger than the Model 3 as well, and we'll guestimate around a 10 percent hit to efficiency. The heavier Model Y, however, will have less range because of its increased weight and size. As is typical of Tesla models, the Model Y will be sold in a number of guises with different electric motor configurations and various sizes of battery packs. The Model Y will enter the fray at a time when crossovers are an incredibly hot segment of the entire global automotive market, and US demand for the Model 3 compact sedan is starting to taper off. It has a sleek tapered front-end with the larger rear and height of a compact crossover/SUV.

China's customs authority has lifted its suspension on imports of Tesla's Model 3, an official in the authority's news department told Reuters on Thursday. So despite Elon tweeting the Model Y would have them, yeah, no. Tesla said it hopes to build 2,000 Model Ys per week by September 2020.
