Does the Tesla Model Y make the Model 3 a Model 'Why?'

Tesla Reveals Model Y ‘Baby SUV’ Tonight: How To Watch Live

Tesla Inc is Elon Musk's attempt to commercialize electric vehicles.

The model comes in four versions: Standard Range, Long Range, Performance, and Dual Motor AWD.

As Jalopnik correctly highlights, the Model Y shares a lot in common with the mainstream Model 3 sedan (about 75 percent of its components are the same) so if you liked the look and feel of that vehicle, you'll probably feel right at home here.

Still, Tesla stock did rise ahead of Thursday night's Model Y unveiling. The "Long Range" version of the rear-wheel drive is listed at 47,000 dollars, the twin-engine four-wheel drive version with "Longe Range" battery costs 51,000 dollars (with performance package: $60,000).

At the cheaper end of the scale, the Standard Range Model Y will cost $39,000 and can travel 230 miles on one charge. It would sell for $39,000.

Global climate strike begins, with students skipping school to protest
Greta Thunberg , in August past year , became the face of a "school strike" outside the Swedish parliament building. Last month, lawmakers in the northern Swiss canton of Basel symbolically declared a "climate emergency".

'My guess as to when we would think it is safe for somebody to essentially fall asleep and wake up at their destination? Built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, the low centre of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection, the company added. Tesla's founder, Elon Musk, said that he expects the vehicle to be fully autonomous when it is released in 2021. Especially when you consider the price difference between the 3 and the Y is as slim as $2,000, the Model 3 seems unnecessary, even obsolete with the launch of the Y crossover.

On Tesla.com, you can already build and order a Long Range Model Y, with $2,500 down, today-which is one of the key differences versus Model 3, where the $1,000 merely secured a spot to be able to build a auto later. Jeffery Osborne, managing director at Cowan, felt that the Model Y SUV was reveal did not live up to expectations.

The all-new electric SUV is built on the same platform as adopted in the case of Tesla's best-selling Model 3. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made plenty of lofty promises about the potential of these cameras, ultrasonic sensors, radar, and specialized computer, but there's still much to be delivered on that front.

At the high-end of the spectrum is the Performance Model-Y that has a $64,000 price tag and accelerates to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.

Press information noted that the Y "is also compatible with our current Supercharger network of more than 12,000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as our new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour". Musk gave no new details about where the Model Y would be produced at Thursday's event. Remember, the Model 3 was first shown three years ago next month and there's still no firm date when deliveries will commence Down Under. If the Model Y does away with Tesla's trademark consumer-pleasing uniqueness without improving its efficiency with investor capital, the Model Y could signal the beginning of the end of an automaker that will make a fascinating case study for generations. not with a bang, but with a whimper. The Model Y Standard Range will be built starting in early 2021 for North America and early 2022 for Europe and China.
