I was really hoping it would be more of a 'traditional' shaped CUV than a coupe thing.

Of course style is personal so to each their own. Will see tonight what it really looks like I guess.

Do you think there's going to be an angry mob of new Model 3 owners who will bitch and moan about this new Y-model being announce weeks after their $35k Model 3 invoice was processed?

News


Three wild years after the introduction of the Tesla Model 3, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has finally introduced its long-promised crossover sibling, the Tesla Model Y.

After painfully joking and meandering his way through the history of the Tesla model lineup—at one point joking that the lineup is now “Semi SEXY” with evidently no love for the Roadster—as well as the rest of the company’s history, Musk finally got to the point and showed us the Model Y.

The Model 3, But Bigger
As Elon promised when he announced the reveal date of the Model Y, the new crossover is approximately 10 percent bigger in size, and will be priced to cost about 10 percent more than the Model 3. In the company’s final 2018 update, it mentioned the Model Y would share a platform and about 75 percent of its components with the 3.

Like the Model 3, Musk claims the Model Y should get five-star safety ratings. It also gets the same self-driving hardware that’s standard on all Model 3s, which can be unlocked and upgraded as the technology becomes more capable.

What’s New?
Here’s the Model Y lineup that was announced tonight:
  • Standard Range model will get 230 miles of range with a top speed of 120 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds, with a starting price of $39,000.
  • The Long Range model will get 300 miles of range with a top speed of 130 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.5 seconds and a starting price of $47,000.
  • The Dual Motor AWD model will get 280 miles of range with a top speed of 135 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.8 seconds and a starting price of $51,000.
  • The Dual Motor Performance model will also get 280 miles of range, with a top speed of 150 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.5 seconds and a starting price of $60,000.

When Will It Actually Go Into Production?
Most trims of the Model Y will go into production in Fall of 2020, with the “entry-level” Standard Range model going into production later, in the Spring of 2021.

According to a CNBC report earlier this month, Tesla was debating exactly where it wants to build the Model Y. According to the report, the company was considering combining Model S and X production into one line at the Fremont, California factory, or allocating space for production in the Gigafactory near Reno, Nevada.

In January, Musk tweeted that affordable versions of the Model 3 and Y would be produced in the new Shanghai Gigafactory to serve the Chinese market, with higher cost versions produced exclusively in the U.S. In a letter to shareholders back in February, Tesla claimed the Model Y would go into production by the end of next year.

“There was a time when everyone thought electric cars were stupid, and it wasn’t that long ago,” Elon Musk said at the start of tonight’s presentation. And he’s right. The company has come a long way, and pushed the entire industry even further.

The Tesla Model Y also finally completes the lineup’s unfortunately dumb naming acronym. Congrats, Elon. You did it. Mission accomplished.

It is less hideous than the X. That last shot of the blue one makes it look like a Cars cartoon version of the 3.

Missing from that Jalopnik blurb and the photos is this. 3rd row will be optional.

Jesus Christ these are the most generic looking cars. Front and mid of a model 3, back of an X with a 3rd row.

Riveting!

Let’s see if Elon can keep true to the 2021 production date of more than just a handful of cars.

It’s definitely a unifying design.

I actually like this more than the others, minus the Roadster. 7-seats is impressive.

4:28 he mentions it's a true hatchback with rear lift gate, but no one was allowed to open the trunks.

This doesn't show the opening, but does show the rear seats folded down.

The Best part of this Model Y mini SUV/Crossover: NO STUPID HAWK WING PASSENGER DOORS!! I like the size. It looks far more proportioned than the model X.

I do have to agree that with the exception of the Model S, this is the best looking Tesla to date.

So the 3rd row is not rear facing like Model S ... the floor must be really low with that roofline.

Is the belt line retardedly high or did they get a little person test driver? Also a fast back sedan is not a great people carrier. They should have gone straight back with the roof and raised the rear passenger area to fit more batteries.

MKBHD (YouTube video I posted) isn't exactly short. He noted the third row not having any room (a la BRZ/86), but said nothing about inadequacies with the front passenger seat.

I was complaining about the piss poor visibility out of the cabin. The side windows start at the driver's chin and only get higher as they go back. The A-pillars also look suitably chunky enough to block a sizeable SUV from view. The pillars in our Mazda 3 are half that size, and they will sure as hell keep you from seeing a mid size vehicle. The belt line on the Mazda 3 is also about 4-5 inches lower and visibility is hampered by it being even that high.

Electronic warning sensors and cameras are a nice assist, but they are still just an assisting feature and not a good reason to engage in piss poor cabin design in regards minimal blind spots.
