Tesla unveils Model Y

Tesla unveils Model Y

As far as a release date is concerned, the Model Y is slated to become available sometime in early 2020. The Model 3 Long Range could get around 280 miles per charge.

Tesla Model Y joins the company lineup that now consists of the Model 3, Model S and Model X in the passenger vehicle range along with the second generation Tesla Roadster and Tesla Semi.

The Y will be what the Tesla Model 3 was to the Tesla Model S: a more affordable, accessible version of a luxury vehicle. Tesla will announce the Model Y's features plus pricing, as well as offering test drives for those in attendance.

After years of speculation, and months of teasing, Tesla late on Thursday night finally unveiled the Model Y. Though the Model Y didn't engender as much excitement as, say, the Model 3, Tesla's newest crossover vehicle does bring a lot to the table.

The Model Y can be ordered here and requires a $2,5000 deposit.

The unveiling of Model Y went pretty quickly, and was light on details.

Tesla will tonight unveil its attempt to break into the fast-growing "crossover" auto segment, revealing the highly anticipated Model Y.

Still, the company expects the Model Y to do well.

"With the same sleek, minimalist dashboard of the Model 3 that does away with the business of instrument clusters so prevalent in traditional vehicles, replaced with the quintessential 15" tablet display, it retains the cool futuristic edge that Tesla has over its competitors. Tesla would "most likely" build the Model Y at Tesla's battery factory in Nevada, he said at the time.

Chief Executive Elon Musk said the compact SUV, built on the same platform as the Model 3, would first debut in a long-range version with a range of 300 miles (482 km) priced at $47,000.

It has a panoramic glass roof keeping it in common with the Model 3, adding to the feeling of space.

At the end of his presentation, Musk claimed that the Model Y would probably sell more "than X and 3 combined". Two weeks later it made a decision to keep more stores open than anticipated (and bump up prices), as well as announce the new V3 Supercharger.
