Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production rather yet, and it’s already working to create hype around the Model Y– the car that will complete the S3XY lineup. Up until now there have actually been few details revolving around the strange model, however recently more has come to light, including the teaser image that was simply launched at Tesla’s 2017 annual shareholder conference. Originally slated to be underpinned by the very same platform utilized for the upcoming Model 3, it is now being stated that the Model Y will get its own new platform that should be all set 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 option the Model X, providing Tesla’s well known AutoPilot, but without all of the other niceties found in the brand name’s more costly models.
So, the plan is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, however as the story usually discusses at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order duration with shipments taking place 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 ought to hear more about the Model Y when the Tesla Semi-Truck debuts in September. So, with that stated, let’s take a better take a look at the rendering we produced and speculate a little on what we can anticipate from the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being built on a new platform basically unlocks for options as far as style goes, so it’s rather most likely that we’ll get to see a brand-new fascia style and new exterior lighting styles. 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 side view cameras will be approved by the time this thing goes into production. That’s right; this thing is devoid of any side view mirrors. It’s already happening in some markets, so it’s not precisely out of the question when this thing makes its debut in the next few years.
2020 Tesla Model Y Interior
At this moment, the interior is a mystery. In the past, we hypothesized that the Model Y would be based on the Model X as far as interior decoration goes, however this is a compact model and will likely be on the more cost effective side like the Model 3. As such, it will likely lack the bells and whistles discovered in cars like the Model S and Model X. The interior will likely be quite bare as we’ve seen in Model 3 spy shots and prototypes, with the primary, tablet-like screen, being utilized as not just the control center for everything however the instrument cluster too. This likewise indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will likewise have an uninspired interior, to an extent 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 occurs to authorize side view cameras instead of side view mirrors, a small display screen might be incorporated into the corners of the dash. In the meantime, however, this is all speculation, so take it with a grain of salt and a shot of scotch.
2020 Tesla Model Y Engine
As far as performance is concerned, it’s quite most likely that the base model will come standard with rear-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive will be an alternative. As far as the battery itself goes, Tesla has actually gradually phased out its smaller batteries, leaving its existing lineup offered with a 75 kWh, 90 kWh, or 100 kWh battery pack. This is slated to be a more affordable model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be what the doctor will buy when the time comes, but offered that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature a brand new platform, that’s actually up in the air as well. We anticipate it to have roughly the same range as the Model 3 in its basic kind at 215 miles, however after launch, larger batteries providing more range might be provided if it does not make it too expensive to be competitive. Anticipate a 0-to-60 miles per hour time around 6 seconds or so, while leading speed will be somewhere around 130 mph.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Pricing for 2020 Tesla Model Y is a really huge offer, as it must fall into the cost effective 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 options, prices could 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, but as the story typically reviews at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with deliveries taking place by 2020 at the earliest.
