‘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).
