Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production rather yet, and it’s already working to generate hype around the Model Y– the car that will complete the S3XY lineup. So far there have been very few details focusing on the strange model, but recently more has emerged, including the teaser image that was simply released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly investor conference. Initially slated to be underpinned by the exact 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 should be prepared for production by the end of the decade. Similar to the Model 3 is to the Model S, the Model Y should be a smaller and more fundamental option the Model X, providing Tesla’s famous AutoPilot, however without all of the other niceties found in the brand’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 typically discusses at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with deliveries happening 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 must 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 created and speculate a little on what we can get out of the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being developed on a brand-new platform pretty much unlocks for options 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 styles. Word has it that it will have the same Falcon doors like those found in the Model X and, if this teaser is any sign, Musk is hoping that side view electronic 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 launching in the next number of years.
2020 Tesla Model Y Interior
At this moment, 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 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 screen, being used as not only the control center for everything however the instrument cluster also. This also suggests the 2020 Tesla Model Y will also have a lackluster interior, to an extent with lots of flat areas and plastic trim. Standard features will likely consist of a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT occurs to authorize side view video cameras as opposed to side view mirrors, a little display screen might 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 performance is concerned, it’s rather 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 actually gradually phased out its smaller batteries, leaving its present 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 medical professional will buy when the time comes, however offered that the 2020 Tesla Model Y will feature an all-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 kind at 215 miles, but after launch, larger batteries using more range 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 or two, while leading speed will be somewhere 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 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 or so. With the alternative of larger battery crams in the future or possible technology choices, prices 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, but as the story usually goes over at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order duration with shipments happening by 2020 at the earliest.
