Tesla is set to debut a compact sports utility vehicle that’s expected to see demand of almost 1 million units annually and become the company’s top-selling vehicle.
Update: Tesla sent invitations to attend the forthcoming Tesla Model Y unveiling event, providing fans a better look in the highly-anticipated all-electric crossover.
Visitors to Tesla’s website who click “Model Y” will be redirected to a landing page that shows an image, first teased by CEO Elon Musk through Tesla’s 2017 Shareholder Meeting. By adjusting the light balance on Tesla’s Model Y teaser image, we can see a slight resemblance to the Model 3, and that the vehicle is derived from.
Tooling for Tesla Model Y will start this year, according to the company’s fourth quarter and 2018 full year upgrade letter.
With 75% of Model Y’s parts being shared with the Model 3, Tesla expects to have the ability to hit volume production at the end of 2020 from Gigafactory 1 in Sparks, Nevada.
A livestream of the Tesla Model Y unveiling event will start at 8 pm PDT.
