Tesla Model Y To Be Unveiled March 14th

Elon Musk tweeted yesterday afternoon the that the Model Y SUV will break cover for the first time at the L.A. Design Studio on March 14th.

The Tesla Model Y is projected to become an even hotter sales item than the “affordable” Model 3 sedan. With segment-busting volume, the Model 3 did extremely well in 2018 once Tesla got all, or most, of the production issues sorted out.

What we know about the Model Y, and what Musk confirmed, is that, although based on the Model 3, it will be 10% bigger, and will cost roughly 10% more. We’re guessing it will also be heavier which, altogether, explain why it is said that autonomy ranges will be shorter for a same battery.

As we love to speculate, this would indicate that the base Standard Range Model Y will probably retail for just shy of $40,000 USD, or about $53,000 CDN, before incentives. This same Standard Range Model Y’s range will probably drop to just over 200 miles or 320 km from 221 miles or 354 km.

Musk goes on to say that all specifications along with prices and rides will be made available on the 14th. We have to hand it to Musk: He knows how to keep momentum going and keep his competition on its toes. Just last week he had guessing what he meant when he said “some Tesla news” was coming on Thursday.
