Tesla unveils its Model Y crossover

Tesla Reveals Model Y ‘Baby SUV’ Tonight: How To Watch Live

10 per cent bigger than the Model 3, the Y can fit up to seven people and has 66 cubic feet of cargo space.

Tesla Inc's Model Y electric sports utility vehicle is pictured in this undated handout photo released on March 14, 2019.

Musk said more detailed specs and pricing will be available at the Thursday reveal event.

The event was streamed live online, which meant that we all got to have a front row seat to Elon Musk's dumb sex jokes that were sprinkled among a retrospective on each Tesla model to date.

The Tesla Model Y will be based on the Model 3. The base version, which will be slower and have a shorter range, will come in at $39,000, with an availability of 2021.

Tesla Reveals Model Y ‘Baby SUV’ Tonight: How To Watch Live

Tesla Inc unveiled its Model Y electric sports utility vehicle on Thursday evening in California, promising a much-awaited crossover that will face competition from European auto makers rolling out their own electric rivals. The faster charging speed will also allow Supercharger V3 locations to accommodate more vehicles per hour; a capability that will be beneficial to Model Y owners considering the estimated demand for the all-electric SUV. So despite Elon tweeting the Model Y would have them, yeah, no. Its exteriors boast of a similar fascia as seen on the Model 3.

"With the same sleek, minimalist dashboard of the Model 3 that does away with the business of instrument clusters so prevalent in traditional vehicles, replaced with the quintessential 15" tablet display, it retains the cool futuristic edge that Tesla has over its competitors. The Model Y, according to Musk, will be capable of 0-60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.

Tesla says that the Model Y will be about 10 percent larger than the Model 3 as well, and we'll guestimate around a 10 percent hit to efficiency. The Model Y targets young family buyers with the SUV being bigger than the Model 3.

The last time Tesla unveiled a new vehicle was the Model 3 in 2016 - and the company didn't start shipping the cars until the very end of 2017, with many customers waiting well into 2018 for their cars.

As soon as Musk's speech wrapped up, the Model Y was listed on the official Tesla website.
