Default Tesla Model Y - A new Crossover

After adding the Model X and announcing a late 2017 launch for the Model 3, Tesla's fourth model will enter a new, yet uncrowded, segment - An All-Electric Crossover.

Quote:
The Model Y, which has already been confirmed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a tweet last year, would be based on the Model 3, but priced above it, mirroring the Model X's relationship to the Model S.

Musk's promises Tesla truck and compact SUV,

Those additions would allow the business to have models in nearly every segment, and neither would be below the Model 3 in the lineup.

Elon Musk's vision,

Quote:
All Tesla models will eventually be fully autonomous and that will revolutionize the way we move. The first step will be making the tech resistant to failure by building multiple backups into the system.Someday, “you will be able to summon your Tesla from pretty much anywhere,” and at that point everyone will be part of his or her own ride sharing company. When you’re not using it, the car will generate income for you as part of Tesla’s driverless fleet.

Elon Musk confirms the Compact SUV from Tesla as Model Y and will be on the Model 3 Chassis.

He said that Tesla "should be inconsistent in our naming conventions after Model Y". That would appear to signal an end to the 'S3XY' nomenclature that has brought us the Model S, Model 3 (so called because Ford owns the rights to the Model E name), Model X and, soon, Model Y.

Tesla could reveal all-new Model Y SUV this month or will we see more of Model 3?

So, that completes the lineup now. S 3 X Y!

And I wonder which alphabet can they use for the next model. An electric cargo van, a minibus and a pick-up truck are in the offing.

Here is a rendering on the Model Y from Autocar.
