Elon Musk has finalised Tesla Model Y: This is what all we know So Far
Elon Musk has been in to development and iterations of its software for the 3 cars that it sells. But apart from that into development has been another Car. The Tesla Model Y. The design for which has been finalised just recently.
Tesla’s high-tech lineup will soon feature a new Model Y SUV, offering an all-electric rival to the likes of the Audi Q5. The recent leaks show what this semi-autonomous little brother to the Model X could look like when it goes on sale in 2018.
The new #Tesla Model Y is expected to borrow the larger Model X’s jelly mould styling cues but lose the eye-catching ‘falcon wing’ doors. Its front bumper should sport a sharp, single-fanged Tesla grille while a similar set of headlights to the larger Model X should make an appearance, too.
Like its bigger brother, a set of thick black sills and wheel arch trims should exaggerate the Model Y’s imposing proportions but a set of large alloy wheels and low-profile tyres will probably restrict it to on-road use only.
Tesla at present has its Tesla Model 3, Model S, Model X available to public. Next year the Tesla Semi would go into production. Semi is the all electric truck revealed by Tesla last year. After that Tesla has its #Roadster which is its premium car revealed with Semi and is world’s fastest production car.
Which is already producing at its maximum capacity. It is stated that the reveal for Model Y would happen next year. And It would start shipping in 2020. Tesla would need to develop lots of logistics accomplish this. They have a huge lot of bookings for there Roadster and it is not possible that Gigafactory in Nevada holds it.
They have already been invested to bring up a production facility in #Shanghai, they have already started the paper work and budgeting. But it shall still take lot of time for #factory to set up and then training employees for finally starting #production not before 2020.
Even though the design has been finalised but still it may face lot of delays for starting of production. Moreover Tesla is also designing a pickup truck, Elon Musk has already asked people what features they would like to see in pick up truck made by Tesla.
