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.

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.

Tesla Model Y to lead ambitious range expansion plans -The upcoming compact SUV, which is based on the forthcoming Model 3, could become the firm’s biggest seller.

The rumoured Model Y will, like the Model 3, be far more affordable than Tesla’s current offerings.

Tesla Model Y - A new  Crossover-tesla_model_y_leada.jpg

Quote:
The starting price of the Model 3 is likely to be around $37,000 (£30,000), with the Model Y expected to be slightly more expensive. However, Tesla founder Elon Musk thinks the transaction prices of the new compact Teslas will be rather higher, at around £34,000 for the Model 3 and perhaps £37,000 for the Model Y, because buyers will be keen to add cost options to their vehicles.
Quote:
The Model Y is unlikely to be unveiled until some time next year, with production set to follow late in the year. Little in the way of specification has been released, but it’s likely to have the same tophinged ‘falcon wing’ rear doors as the bigger Model X SUV.
Tesla cars will be equipped with as many as eight cameras, giving a 360deg view of the surrounding roadscape, as well as 12 ultrasonic sensors and an unspecified ‘new’ forward-facing radar that works in the worst conditions. Existing radar systems can be fooled by heavy rain and fog.

Elon Musk confirms the small SUV will sit below Model X in range - but might not arrive until 2020.
Quote:
Allowing the brand to compete its 'S, 3, X, Y' model designation, the Model Y finally completes that line-up. It's thought that there will be further new Teslas on the way after that, including a new electric minibus and a pick-up truck
Quote:
It's expected to be inspired by the Model X's design, but it may ditch the complex 'falcon-wing' folding doors for conventional items in order to bring the price down. No further details have been outlined

Tesla Model Y - the electric Crossover is coming in late 2019/20 built on a new platform. The vehicle will feature ‘Falcon Wing’ doors like the Model X, which has been controversial among Tesla enthusiasts.

Musk describes the vehicle as key to Tesla’s achieving its goal of 1 million cars per year in 2020.

Quote:
Elon Musk confirmed that the vehicle will be built on a new platform, which is a change in Tesla’s plans since the company had previously disclosed plans to build the vehicle on the same platform as the Model 3.

The CEO mentioned a big change coming with the new platform: Tesla will get rid of the 12-volt battery architecture. It means no more lead-acid battery and a different way to power in-car electronics. Musk says that they will reduce the overall wiring significantly and simplify the production process.
Quote:
Less wiring harness means easier automation in the production process and Musk plans a completely different – more automated – production line for the Model Y. He said that the Model 3 production lines will be comparable to the best lines in the industry while the Model Y line will be “something else”.

Quote:
Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday revealed new details about the company’s planned Model Y electric SUV due in 2019, including this teaser shot.

The Model Y will be a small SUV similar in size to the Model 3 due in July. It will also feature falcon wing doors like the larger Model X and target vehicles like BMW’s electric X3 and Mercedes-Benz’s EQC due in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Tesla Model Y is fast tracked, now will use the Model 3 platform for an early release.

Quote:
the Model Y will share more components with the Model 3, which is just now entering production.
Quote:
it would make sense to try to bring the vehicle to market faster since SUV is the fastest growing vehicle segment and Tesla should aim to release a more affordable all-electric vehicle in it.
Unfortunately, Musk didn’t update the timeline, but it could come quite soon since the timeline for the new architecture was “late 2019 to 2020” and now it should be sooner.

Tesla Model Y Will Require Only 328 Feet Of Wiring : E Musk Link

Quote:
the upcoming Model Y will require merely 328 feet of wiring in its construction, which is nothing short of impressive. By comparison, the Tesla Model 3 has 5,000 feet of wiring, whereas the Model S requires approximately 10,000 feet.
Quote:
The main reason Tesla would push the envelope with the Model Y in this particular way is that less wiring means less manufacturing-related costs. And speaking of manufacturing, less wiring translates to less time on the assembly line. Whichever way you look at this matter, Tesla is betting on simplification
