What to expect from the Tesla Model Y electric crossover?

The official presentation of the new Tesla model, the all-electric Tesla Model Y crossover, will be held on March 14 this year. Official data on the new product is still very small.

Tesla Model Y is one of the most anticipated new products in 2019. At the moment, about this electric vehicle is almost unknown. The press service of the brand published several teasers, and the company’s founder and CEO Elon Musk, through his accounts in social networks, hinted at a couple of details.

Well-known foreign blogger Sean Mitchell decided to put together all the facts about this car that already exist on the Internet. So, what can we say about the Tesla Model Y crossover?

The official presentation will be held March 14 at Tesla’s design studio in Los Angeles, the cost of the new product, like its size, will be 10% higher than that of the Model 3 sedan (pictured above). The crossover will have three rows of seats (this raises questions – the size of the machine is not very large), and its mass production will be established at Gigafactory 1 (most of the components and assemblies), as well as in China. Conveyors will start at the end of 2020.

According to representatives of Tesla, the Model Y crossover will be based on the Model 3 sedan. This will significantly reduce development costs, which means that the Model Y will cost between $ 40,000 for the all-wheel drive version. According to insiders, batteries with different capacities will be offered, allowing you to travel a full charge from 321 km to 442.57. The crossover will receive the same 15-inch touch screen, panoramic roof and door handles, like the Model 3 sedan. The novelty is unlikely to get air suspension.
