Eight Tesla Model Y stories

October 2015 - December 2016

‘Tesla Model Y’ is not an official name yet, but that’s what Tesla officials have been referring to when talking about a crossover all-electric vehicle built on the same third generation platform as the Tesla Model 3. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the vehicle will feature ‘Falcon Wing’ doors like the Model X.

The vehicle is expected to be very similar to the Model 3 and feature similar options as the Model 3, like the Model S is similar to the Model X.

Tesla has yet to unveil the Model Y, but the company is reportedly in advanced stages of the development of the vehicle and it should be unveiled soon. It is expected to hit production shortly after the Model 3 (around 2018).

2016 was my first full-time year at Electrek covering clean-tech and primarily electric vehicles. It undoubtedly was a great and exciting year for EVs with several automakers announcing new upcoming vehicles, some of them even committing to volume production and governments setting more ambitious goals for electric vehicle adoption.

It obviously means that the next few years will be even more exciting in the segment and our coverage will inevitably become broader than mainly Tesla and a few EVs. Here we take a look at what’s on the roadmap for the next 3 years in the electric vehicle world with 10 new electric cars. expand full story

Tesla has long been a 1-car company. From when it first started production of the Roadster in 2008 to the end of the program and the start of Model S production in 2012 — and finally to last year when Tesla started delivering the Model X. The automaker has only been really producing two different models in volume for the past few months and it’s a significant accomplishment for a new automaker.

Other most recent American auto startups, like Fisker Automotive and DeLorean, all folded before they could bring a second car to market. Now Tesla plans to go from being a two-car company to have over half a dozen vehicles on the market by the end of the decade. expand full story

When Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the Model Y, the automaker’s upcoming compact SUV, will feature Falcon Wing doors, like the Model X, it divided Tesla enthusiasts. Some were already in love with the feature on the Model X, but others had serious reservations.

That was in October 2015, months before the Model X hit the market in any significant numbers. I expected those reservations to mostly go away after the Model X started going out to customers, but it looks like that wasn’t the case.

I was reading the comments on our last article on the Model Y and I was quite surprised by the number of comments pleading for Tesla to drop the Falcon Wings for the Model Y. expand full story

Elon Musk has been on a quest to bring ‘S3XY’ back with Tesla’s vehicle naming convention. First with the Model S, ‘S’ for sedan, and Model X, ‘X’ for the look of the Falcon Wing doors, and now with the upcoming Model 3 and Y.

But now it looks like Telsa might drop the ‘Model’ plus ‘letter’ naming scheme after the Model Y completes the ‘S3XY’ vehicle lineup, according to Elon Musk. expand full story

The Model Y is the second vehicle Tesla plans to release on its third generation platform – with the Model 3 being the first. There’s no official timeline for when the automaker plans to bring it to market, but it is expected to follow not too far behind the Model 3, which set for a release in late 2017.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted last year that the Model Y will have Falcon Wing doors like the Model X, which leads us to beleive the Model Y will be a crossover or small SUV version of the Model 3. expand full story
