The only official Tesla Model Y image released to date is dark and shows little of the electric CUV, but that hasn't stopped various renderers from taking stabs at dreaming up what the Y would look like if we could shed a bit more light on the image.
Model Y Rendering Via Auto Express
This latest render (see cropped image - or full image here) comes to us courtesy of Auto Express.
This particular render sure looks a lot like Model 3 meet Model X. Auto Express states:
"Our exclusive image previews how the car could look when it arrives in 2019. If Tesla adopts a ‘Russian doll’ approach to the Model Y’s design, we expect it to mimic the Model X SUV’s form and function in a smaller package – maybe even down to the ‘Falcon wing’-style doors, which Musk has previously promised. Fresh design cues from the Model 3 such as the flat, grille-free front end could also define the new car."
There's definitely a commonality to Tesla's design, so this take on the Y probably isn't too far off.
As for when we'll see the Model Y in production, tesla CEO Elon Musk previously stated:
…we are aiming for that to hit the roads in 2019 approximately. And probably the demand for Model Y will exceed the demand for Model 3.”
However, that was back when Musk wanted the Y to have its own platform. Now Tesla is saying the Y will comes based on a Model 3 platform, so there's a chance the timeline will be moved up.
