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

The fifth Tesla EV-after the original Roadster, the Model S, the Model X, and the Model 3-will share its wheelbase, chassis, and powertrain options with the brand's current smallest model, the Model 3 sedan.

Still, the Model Y, like all Tesla's models, has already seen pre-production delays. Before the Standard Range model arrives, however, customers will have three different variants to choose from all of which will launch in Fall 2020.

With the Model Y, Tesla has finally unveiled the last vehicle in its "S3XY "roadmap". As the name implies, this variant will focus on maximizing range and be able to cover 300 miles (482 km) on a single charge. But once you start stacking features into the vehicle, it starts bleeding into the range of Audi's E-Tron and Jaguar's I-Pace. Moving on to the all-wheel drive configurations, expect to pay roughly $51,000 for the Long Range trim and $63,800 for the Performance trim. It will have a top speed of 135 miles per hour (217 km/h) and deal with the 0-60 miles per hour sprint in 4.8 seconds.

The Model Y could accelerate from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. It has been priced from $60,000.

Analysts said that with the Model Y, Tesla look to dig its claws into the profitable compact SUV segment, which grew by 12.6 percent to 3.5 million SUVs sold in 2018.

Tesla Inc will unveil 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. As a crossover, it's slightly larger, and will be offered as a three-row vehicle, seating seven, though two-row version will be offered as well. The Model Y will also be pricier than the Model 3 by 10 percent, giving it a sticker price of about $40,000. The Model Y has 66 cu ft of cargo space.
