Tesla Unveils Model Y

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

Last night, at the grand unveiling of what's set to be the fourth auto in the automaker's electric line-up, Tesla CEO Elon Musk referred to the Model Y as a "midsize SUV"; others, meanwhile, have argued that it's actually a compact SUV.

In terms of performance, the flagship Model Y boasts a range of 280 miles (450 km), a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. The Long Range model gets you to 300 and a slightly faster 0-60 time of 5.5 seconds, while the Performance model is the hot model while still offering a 280-mile range.

The all-electric, mid-size SUV will start at $39,000 for the standard range version, which the company said can go 230 miles (370 kilometers) on a single charge.

Last year, Elon Musk jovially tweeted that we can expect the Tesla Model Y in mid-March. Top speed is 209 km/h, and Musk also assures that it "ride [s] like a sports auto... really tight in corners".

The long-range Model Y with a range of 300 miles, is set to arrive in the fall of 2020 and will come with a price tag of $47,000.

The Model Y is priced at $39k, for the standard range variant, and goes up to $75k for the 7-seater AWD Performance variant with Full Self-Driving capability.

Tesla unveiled its Model Y, promising a much-awaited crossover that will face competition from European automakers rolling out their own electric rivals.

"We are bring sexy back, quite literally", he said.

In October, Musk said "significant progress" had been made on the Model Y and that he had approved the prototype for production in 2020.

He spoke publicly Tuesday for the first time since January and his recent shutdown for the remainder of the season. Bosh eventually retired due to blood clotting issues, but many other athletes have continued to compete.

But now that Tesla has revealed its Model Y it's worth considering the lead time between reveal and delivery into showrooms here in Australia.

The Model Y will also feature a panoramic glass roof, although it will not have the gullwing doors that were previously seen on the Model X.

Still, Musk said the Model Y could outsell the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 combined.

Tesla is inching closer to launching its next vehicle - the Model Y crossover - but the company has not yet chosen a site at which to build it just months ahead of the planned start of production, . Finally, there's the Model Y Performance ($60,000) that keeps the same 280-mile range, but will hit 60 miles per hour from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds.

As Jalopnik correctly highlights, the Model Y shares a lot in common with the mainstream Model 3 sedan (about 75 percent of its components are the same) so if you liked the look and feel of that vehicle, you'll probably feel right at home here.

Tesla is hoping there will pent-up demand for the Model Y, almost four years after Musk first began touting the company's plans to make an SUV. The increased commonality should make the Model Y easier to integrate into current assembly processes and make it somewhat less expensive to produce.

Now it has revealed its much-anticipated electric SUV, the Model Y. "Now we've made about 550,000 cars".
