Tesla Model Y starts at $47K in late 2020

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

We'll keep you updated on the latest.

The Tesla Model 3 was rated as the safest auto by the USA authorities, and since the Model Y is built on the same schematic (they share 75% of the parts), it is expected to be one of the safest cars when it comes.

Luckily for Tesla, many of its customers are also investors and surely they will appreciate the firm's apparent new commitment to boring but achievable profit-boosting.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled a cheaper electric crossover, the Model Y, in a bid to regain momentum after a rough start to the year.

The Model Y is available for preorder right now; that is if you're willing to part with a fully refundable $2,500 reservation fee. Th seven seat model is optional of course thanks to 66 cubic feet or 1.9 cube meter of cabin space matched with a panoramic glass roof. He also put all of Tesla's cars on stage.

I sat down to watch the Model Y unveiling tonight with a list of questions that I was hoping to get answers to from a business perspective.

Inside, the Model Y shares the Model 3's simplistic interior with a horizontal shelf-like dashboard and 15-inch touchscreen that houses almost all vehicle controls.

A choice of four powertrain configurations are likely to be offered, with Long Range, Dual Motor and Performance arriving first.

The compact SUV, which Musk compared to a larger version of the company's Model 3 sedan, will have a range of 300 miles, a 0.23 drag coefficient and the capability to increase in speed from 0 mph to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. With its extra get-up-and-go the Performance model will offer "only" 280 miles of range.

Tesla expects the higher-end versions to ship in fall 2020. It'll sticker for $52,200. Model Y is compatible with the current Supercharger network of more than 12,000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as the new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour.

The Model Y, which should appeal to buyers of vehicles such as the Mercedes GLA, BMW X2, or Lexus NX, will have a starting price of $39,000 for the standard range version.

Last but not least is the Dual Motor Performance model which produces the same 280 miles of range but again improves on performance, cutting the 0 to 60 mph time to just 3.5 seconds and bumping the top speed to 150 mph. It'll sticker for $40,200 including destination and delivery charges.

But now that Tesla has shown some stability in Model 3 production numbers, the Model Y will give the company a new challenge. He noted that none of us screamed during his mighty launch. The Model-Y has the same "sloping" bumper and grille design as Porsche's cars, despite the fact that Tesla moved away from the European company a while back.

"We are bring sexy back, quite literally", he said.

Musk said ramping up production of the Model 3 and dealing with controversies ranging from a securities fraud case to a marijuana brouhaha made for a rough year.
