2020 Tesla Model Y
Tesla hasn’t even put the model 3 into production quite 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 actually been few details revolving around the mystical model, but just recently more has emerged, including the teaser image that was simply released at Tesla’s 2017 yearly investor 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 must be prepared 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 fundamental alternative the Model X, providing Tesla’s renowned AutoPilot, however without all of the other niceties discovered in the brand’s more costly models.
So, the plan is for the Model Y to go on sale for the 2019 model year, but as the story generally discusses at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order duration with shipments taking place by 2020 at the earliest. The 2020 Tesla Model Y would deal with models like the BMW i3 and Mercedes B-Class, to name a few. We need to hear more about the Model Y when the Tesla Semi-Truck debuts in September. So, with that said, let’s take a much better look at the rendering we developed and hypothesize a little on what we can anticipate from the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
2020 Tesla Model Y Exterior
Being built on a brand-new platform basically unlocks for alternatives as far as design goes, so it’s quite most likely that we’ll get to see a new fascia style and brand-new exterior lighting designs. 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 cameras will be authorized by the time this thing goes into production. That’s right; this thing is devoid of any side view 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 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 design goes, but this is a compact model and will likely be on the more economical 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 rather bare as we’ve seen in Model 3 spy shots and prototypes, with the main, tablet-like screen, being used as not just the control center for everything but the instrument cluster also. This likewise indicates the 2020 Tesla Model Y will also have an uninspired interior, to a degree with great deals of flat spaces and plastic trim. Basic features will likely consist of a Wi-Fi hotspot, AutoPilot, and powered windows and seats. If the DOT takes place to approve profile cameras instead of side view mirrors, a little display screen could be incorporated 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 whiskey.
2020 Tesla Model Y Engine
As far as efficiency is worried, it’s quite 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 current lineup available with a 75 kWh, 90 kWh, or 100 kWh battery pack. This is slated to be a more budget friendly model, so the 75 kWh battery pack appears to be exactly what the physician will order 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 also. We anticipate it to have roughly the very same range as the Model 3 in its basic type at 215 miles, but after launch, bigger batteries using more range could be offered if it doesn’t make it too costly to be competitive. Anticipate a 0-to-60 mph time around 6 seconds or two, while top speed will be somewhere around 130 miles per hour.
2020 Tesla Model Y Release Date and Price
Pricing for 2020 Tesla Model Y is an actually big deal, as it ought to fall under the economical classification just 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 choice of bigger battery packs 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, but as the story typically reviews at Tesla, 2019 will likely be the pre-order period with shipments occurring by 2020 at the earliest.
