Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production rather yet, and it’s currently working to produce buzz around the Model Y– the car that will finish the S3XY lineup. Up until now there have been very few details revolving around the strange model, however recently more has emerged, including the teaser image that was just released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly investor meeting. Originally 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 should be ready for production by the end of the decade. Much like the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y ought to be a smaller and more basic alternative the Model X, providing Tesla’s renowned AutoPilot, but without all 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, however as the story normally goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order duration with deliveries occurring by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would tackle 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 much better take a look at the rendering we created and speculate a little on what we can get out of the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being built on a brand-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 brand-new exterior lighting styles. Word has it that it will have the same Falcon doors like those discovered in the Model X and, if this teaser is any sign, Musk is hoping that profile video cameras will be approved by the time this thing enters into production. That’s right; this thing is devoid of any profile mirrors. It’s already occurring 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 point, the interior is a secret. 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 affordable 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 models, with the primary, tablet-like display screen, being used as not only the control center for everything however the instrument cluster too. This also means the 2020 Tesla Model Y will likewise have a lackluster interior, to a level with great deals of flat spaces and plastic trim. Standard features will likely consist of a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT happens to authorize side view cams instead of profile mirrors, a little display screen could be incorporated into the corners of the dash. In the meantime, nevertheless, this is all speculation, so take it with a grain of salt and a shot of whiskey.
2020 Tesla Model Y Engine
As far as efficiency 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 option. As far as the battery itself goes, Tesla has actually slowly phased out its smaller batteries, leaving its existing lineup readily available with a 75 kWh, 90 kWh, or 100 kWh battery pack. This is slated to be a more inexpensive model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be exactly what the doctor will order when the time comes, however provided that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature an all-new platform, that’s really up in the air too. We anticipate it to have approximately the very same range as the Model 3 in its basic type at 215 miles, but after launch, bigger batteries using more variety could be offered if it does not make it too pricey to be competitive. Anticipate a 0-to-60 miles per hour time around six seconds approximately, while top 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 truly big deal, as it ought to fall under the affordable category similar to the Model 3. With the Model 3 priced at $35,000, and this being an SUV, anticipate it to start out around $40,000 or two. With the alternative of larger 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 variety. The plan 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 duration with deliveries happening by 2020 at the earliest.
