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 complete the S3XY lineup. So far there have been very few details revolving around the strange model, however just recently more has come to light, consisting of the teaser image that was simply launched at Tesla’s 2017 yearly shareholder conference. Initially slated to be underpinned by the same platform utilized 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 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 and more standard option the Model X, providing Tesla’s famous AutoPilot, but without all of the other niceties discovered 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 deliveries taking place by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would take on 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 look at the rendering we created and hypothesize a little on exactly what we can get out of the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being developed on a new platform basically opens the door for alternatives as far as style goes, so it’s quite most likely that we’ll get to see a new fascia style and new exterior lighting designs. 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 side view video 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 happening in some markets, so it’s not exactly out of the concern when this thing makes its debut in the next couple 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, 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 lack the bells and whistles found 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 screen, being used as not just the nerve center for whatever but the instrument cluster also. This also indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will also have a lackluster interior, to a level with lots of flat areas and plastic trim. Basic features will likely include a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT occurs to approve side view cams instead of profile mirrors, a little 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 whiskey.
2020 Tesla Model Y Engine
As far as efficiency is concerned, it’s quite 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 slowly phased out its smaller 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 cost effective model, so the 75 kWh battery pack seems to be exactly what the physician will purchase when the time comes, but provided 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 very same range as the Model 3 in its standard kind at 215 miles, however after launch, bigger batteries offering more range could be made available if it doesn’t make it too costly to be competitive. Expect a 0-to-60 mph time around six seconds or two, while top speed will be someplace around 130 mph.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Rates for 2020 Tesla Model Y is a truly huge deal, as it should fall into the budget friendly category 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 approximately. With the choice of bigger battery crams in the future or possible technology options, pricing might even go as high as $55,000 for a fully-specced model with more than 215 miles worth of range. The plan is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, however as the story normally discusses at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with shipments happening by 2020 at the earliest.
