Los Angeles - The Tesla Model Y was unveiled on Thursday March 14, 2019 at the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne! During the 'S3XY' presentation, Elon Musk reviewed the key highlights of Tesla's current projects, such as Gigafactory 3, and ended it with the Model Y Unveiling.
The Model Y is the long-promised crossover version of the Model 3, and while some might not be fans yet, we think it will grow on many all the way up to release next year.
Everything that has been promised about this vehicle is true. It shares 75% of its parts with the Model 3 including all its wheel options. It offers 10% more space with minimal affect on range compared to the Model 3.
Below is the Model Y line up with a break down on each trim.
Visually, the Model Y resembles many design cues of the Model 3. It's slightly higher like a crossover should be and allows seating for up to 7 with a $3000 Third Row Option.
The most notable Model Y specs are:
- up to 300 miles of range
- 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds
- 0.23 drag coefficient
The starting price will be $39,000 for a Standard Range Model Y with a 5-seat configuration. The Long Range Single Motor, Dual Motor, and Performance have an estimated delivery date of Fall 2020 while the Standard Range is expected in Spring 2021.
European and China deliveries will begin sometime in 2021.
The Model Y Online Design Studio was launched just after the unveiling allowing for pre-orders with the standard $2,500 deposit.
