Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production quite yet, and it’s already working to generate hype around the Model Y– the car that will complete the S3XY lineup. Up until now there have been very few information revolving around the mystical model, but recently more has come to light, consisting of the teaser image that was just released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly shareholder meeting. Originally slated to be underpinned by the very same platform utilized for the upcoming Model 3, it is now being said that the Model Y will get its own new platform that ought to be all set for production by the end of the decade. Much like the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y should be a smaller sized and more fundamental alternative the Model X, providing Tesla’s renowned AutoPilot, however without all the other niceties found in the brand name’s more costly models.
So, the strategy is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, but as the story generally goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with deliveries happening by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would deal with models like the BMW i3 and Mercedes B-Class, among others. 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 much better look at the rendering we produced and speculate a little on exactly what we can expect from the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being constructed on a brand-new platform practically unlocks for choices as far as design goes, so it’s quite likely that we’ll get to see a new fascia style and brand-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 sign, Musk is hoping that profile cameras 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 taking place in some markets, so it’s not precisely out of the question when this thing makes its launching in the next few years.
2020 Tesla Model Y Interior
At this moment, the interior is a mystery. In the past, we speculated that the Model Y would be based on the Model X as far as interior design goes, but this is a compact model and will likely be on the more cost effective side like the Model 3. As such, it will likely do not have the bells and whistles found 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 utilized as not just the control center for everything but the instrument cluster too. This likewise implies the 2020 Tesla Model Y will likewise have an uninspired interior, to a level with lots of flat spaces and plastic trim. Basic features will likely include a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT takes place to approve profile video cameras as opposed to side view mirrors, a small display screen could be integrated into the corners of the dash. For now, 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 efficiency is concerned, it’s quite 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 cost effective model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be exactly what the physician will buy when the time comes, however given the fact that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature a brand new platform, that’s really up in the air too. We expect it to have roughly the very same variety as the Model 3 in its basic form at 215 miles, however after launch, bigger batteries providing more variety could be made available if it doesn’t make it too expensive to be competitive. Expect a 0-to-60 mph time around six seconds approximately, while top speed will be somewhere around 130 miles per hour.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Prices for 2020 Tesla Model Y is an actually big deal, as it needs to fall into the budget-friendly classification much like the Model 3. With the Model 3 priced at $35,000, and this being an SUV, expect it to begin around $40,000 approximately. With the option of larger battery crams in the future or possible technology options, rates might 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, however as the story generally goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with deliveries occurring by 2020 at the earliest.
