5 Things We Hope To Learn About The Tesla Model Y

As Tesla plans to unveil the new Model Y tonight, we look at what we hope the latest EV will and will not be.

To think, Tesla’s only just recently come out of the woods following quasi-disastrous production madness of its anticipated Model 3 sedan and now, Elon’s about to put everyone through hell again with their new Tesla Model Y “affordable” compact SUV.

But seriously, what can go wrong? Right? Musk himself predicts that the Model Y will outpace Model 3 sales by 50% or even 100%! If I was a Tesla employee, I don’t know if I’d be excited or terrified…

While we wait for the 11pm EST (8pm PDT) conference, here are five things we hope to learn about the new Tesla Model Y:

Affordable version now

With the base Model 3 now available, we hope that Elon will announce that the Standard Range Model Y will also become available at the beginning of production.

All the Performance

This is somewhat obvious, but we pray that a Performance version will be part of the catalogue.

Normal doors please

We hope that designers will not reproduce the Model X’s gullwing doors. They look cool but are ultimately pointless.

A small instrument cluster

Last year, leaked images of an updated Model X and S circulated depicting a small instrument cluster above the steering column. Although we fully expect the Model Y’s dashboard will be identical to the Model 3’s, we’d like to see something like it in the Y.

Same engaging driving experience

Although Musk will surely state that the Model Y will be incredible to drive despite being roughly 10% bigger, we hope it will be just as amazing to drive as the Model 3. We were blown away by the 3 far more than what we experienced with the Model S and Model X.

One thing is certain and that is that the compact luxury electric SUV is in full bloom. Just a few weeks ago, we were acquainted with the new Audi Q4 e-tron which will arrive just ahead of the promised electric Porsche Macan (now possibly bearing a different name) and a compact version of the Mercedes EQB.
