2020 Tesla Model Y
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 finish the S3XY lineup. So far there have been very few information revolving around the strange model, however recently more has actually emerged, including the teaser image that was just released at Tesla’s 2017 annual investor meeting. Initially slated to be underpinned by the same platform used for the upcoming Model 3, it is now being stated that the Model Y will get its own new platform that needs to be prepared for production by the end of the decade. Just like the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y must be a smaller sized and more standard option the Model X, offering up Tesla’s renowned AutoPilot, but without all the other niceties found in the brand name’s more expensive models.
So, the plan is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, however as the story generally reviews at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period 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 should hear more about the Model Y when the Tesla Semi-Truck debuts in September. So, with that said, let’s take a better take a look at the rendering we produced and hypothesize a little on what we can anticipate from the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being developed on a brand-new platform pretty much opens the door for choices as far as style goes, so it’s rather most likely that we’ll get to see a brand-new fascia design and brand-new exterior lighting designs. Word has it that it will have the very same Falcon doors like those discovered 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 enters into production. That’s right; this thing is void of any profile mirrors. It’s currently happening in some markets, so it’s not precisely out of the concern when this thing makes its debut 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 upon the Model X as far as interior decoration goes, however this is a compact model and will likely be on the more budget friendly 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 rather bare as we’ve seen in Model 3 spy shots and prototypes, with the primary, tablet-like display screen, being used as not only the nerve center for everything however the instrument cluster too. This likewise indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will also have an uninspired interior, to an extent with lots of flat spaces and plastic trim. Standard features will likely include a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT happens to authorize profile cams rather than profile mirrors, a small display screen could be incorporated 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 performance is concerned, it’s rather most likely that the base model will come basic 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 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 budget-friendly model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be exactly what the medical professional will order when the time comes, however given the fact that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature an all-new platform, that’s actually up in the air as well. We anticipate it to have roughly the same variety as the Model 3 in its basic kind at 215 miles, but after launch, bigger batteries offering more range might be made available if it doesn’t make it too expensive to be competitive. Expect a 0-to-60 miles per hour time around six seconds approximately, while leading speed will be someplace around 130 miles per hour.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Rates for 2020 Tesla Model Y is a really big offer, as it should fall into the affordable category just like the Model 3. With the Model 3 priced at $35,000, and this being an SUV, expect it to start around $40,000 or two. With the option of bigger battery packs 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 typically discusses at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order duration with deliveries happening by 2020 at the earliest.
