Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production rather yet, and it’s currently working to create buzz around the Model Y– the car that will complete the S3XY lineup. Up until now there have actually been few information revolving around the mystical model, but just recently more has emerged, consisting of the teaser image that was just released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly investor conference. Initially slated to be underpinned by the same platform utilized for the upcoming Model 3, it is now being said that the Model Y will get its own new platform that needs to be ready for production by the end of the decade. Much like the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y must be a smaller sized and more standard alternative the Model X, providing Tesla’s renowned AutoPilot, however without all the other niceties discovered in the brand name’s more expensive models.
So, the strategy is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, but as the story generally reviews at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with deliveries occurring by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would deal with models like the BMW i3 and Mercedes B-Class, to name a few. We should hear more about the Model Y when the Tesla Semi-Truck debuts in September. So, with that said, let’s take a much better take a look at the rendering we produced and speculate a little on exactly what we can anticipate from the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being built on a new platform practically unlocks for alternatives as far as design goes, so it’s quite most likely that we’ll get to see a new fascia style and new exterior lighting designs. Word has it that it will have the exact same Falcon doors like those discovered in the Model X and, if this teaser is any indicator, Musk is hoping that profile video cameras will be approved by the time this thing enters into production. That’s right; this thing is devoid of any side view mirrors. It’s already occurring in some markets, so it’s not precisely out of the concern when this thing makes its launching in the next couple of years.
2020 Tesla Model Y Interior
At this point, the interior is a mystery. In the past, we speculated that the Model Y would be based upon the Model X as far as interior design goes, but this is a compact model and will likely be on the more economical side like the Model 3. As such, it will likely do not have the bells and whistles found in cars like the Model S and Model X. The interior will likely be rather bare as we’ve seen in Model 3 spy shots and prototypes, with the main, tablet-like display, being utilized as not only the control center for everything but the instrument cluster too. This likewise indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will likewise have an uninspired interior, to a degree with lots of flat spaces and plastic trim. Basic features will likely consist of a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT happens to authorize profile cams rather than side view mirrors, a little display screen could be incorporated into the corners of the dash. In the meantime, nevertheless, this is all speculation, so take it with a grain of salt and a shot of bourbon.
2020 Tesla Model Y Engine
As far as efficiency is concerned, it’s quite likely that the base model will come basic with rear-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive will be a choice. As far as the battery itself goes, Tesla has slowly phased out its smaller sized batteries, leaving its current lineup readily available with a 75 kWh, 90 kWh, or 100 kWh battery pack. This is slated to be a more inexpensive model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be exactly what the physician will buy when the time comes, however provided that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature an all-new platform, that’s really up in the air also. We anticipate it to have roughly the very same range as the Model 3 in its standard form at 215 miles, but after launch, larger batteries offering more range could be made available if it doesn’t make it too expensive to be competitive. Anticipate a 0-to-60 miles per hour time around six seconds or two, while leading speed will be somewhere around 130 miles per hour.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Prices for 2020 Tesla Model Y is an actually big offer, as it needs to fall under the affordable classification just like the Model 3. With the Model 3 priced at $35,000, and this being an SUV, anticipate it to begin around $40,000 or so. With the option of bigger battery packs in the future or possible technology choices, rates might even go as high as $55,000 for a fully-specced model with more than 215 miles worth of variety. The strategy is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, however as the story usually goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with shipments happening by 2020 at the earliest.
