Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production rather yet, and it’s already working to produce buzz around the Model Y– the car that will finish the S3XY lineup. Up until now there have actually been very few information revolving around the mysterious model, but recently more has emerged, consisting of the teaser image that was just released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly investor meeting. Originally slated to be underpinned by the very same platform used for the upcoming Model 3, it is now being stated that the Model Y will get its own brand-new platform that needs to be prepared for production by the end of the decade. Much like the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y need to be a smaller sized and more standard alternative the Model X, offering up Tesla’s famous AutoPilot, however without all of the other niceties found in the brand’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 usually reviews at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with shipments occurring by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would take on models like the BMW i3 and Mercedes B-Class, among others. We need to hear more about the Model Y when the Tesla Semi-Truck debuts in September. So, with that stated, let’s take a better look at the rendering we produced and speculate a little on exactly what we can get out of the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being built on a new platform pretty much opens the door for alternatives as far as design goes, so it’s quite likely that we’ll get to see a brand-new fascia design and new exterior lighting styles. Word has it that it will have the exact same Falcon doors like those found in the Model X and, if this teaser is any indication, Musk is hoping that profile cams will be authorized by the time this thing goes into production. That’s right; this thing is void of any profile 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 number of years.
2020 Tesla Model Y Interior
At this point, 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, but this is a compact model and will likely be on the more inexpensive side like the Model 3. As such, it will likely do not have 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 main, tablet-like display, being utilized as not just the control center for everything but the instrument cluster also. This likewise indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will also have a lackluster interior, to an extent with great deals 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 takes place to authorize profile cameras as opposed to side view mirrors, a small display screen might be integrated into the corners of the dash. For now, nevertheless, 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 efficiency is worried, it’s rather most likely that the base model will come standard with rear-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive will be an option. As far as the battery itself goes, Tesla has gradually phased out its smaller batteries, leaving its present 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 exactly what the doctor will purchase when the time comes, however given the fact that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature a brand new platform, that’s actually up in the air too. We anticipate it to have approximately the same variety as the Model 3 in its basic type at 215 miles, but after launch, larger batteries offering more variety could be offered if it does not make it too costly to be competitive. Anticipate a 0-to-60 miles per hour time around six seconds or so, while top speed will be someplace around 130 mph.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Prices for 2020 Tesla Model Y is a really big deal, as it needs to fall into the inexpensive classification just like the Model 3. With the Model 3 priced at $35,000, and this being an SUV, expect it to begin around $40,000 or so. With the choice of larger battery crams in the future or possible technology options, prices might even go as high as $55,000 for a fully-specced model with more than 215 miles worth of range. The strategy is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, however as the story normally goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with shipments occurring by 2020 at the earliest.
