Tesla Model Y Comes Into View Thanks To New Render

Tesla Model Y

JUN 13 2017 BY JEFF PEREZ 24

The lineup is beginning to look pretty S3XY!

Tesla hasn’t even officially debuted its new Model 3 sedan in full, but already fans of the brand are anxious to see the next-in-line Model Y. Expected to make its debut sometime in 2019, rendering artists at Peisert Design have visualized the upcoming small SUV a few years early.

Using the lone teaser image we saw just a few days ago, artists were able to vaguely piece together the upcoming Tesla. Borrowing a number of cues from the current lineup – including the “surgeon mask” front grille found on the Model 3 – the Model Y rendering fits right in with the current crop of Tesla vehicles.

Musk promises that the Model Y will be manufactured in a “way that a car has never been built before,” meaning it will have a unique platform all its own apart from the Model 3, as well as its own dedicated factory. Musk estimates that the Model Y will eventually outsell the Model 3.

“I am really excited about Model Y. It’s, there’s been some criticism, like we should sort of derive it from the Model 3 platform. But I think actually we made a mistake in trying to derive the Model X from the Model S platform,” said Musk at the annual shareholders meeting. “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.”

Things like price, performance details, and availability remain a mystery. Expect the Model Y to have a similar price tag and performance options to the Model 3, which will make its debut later this year with a starting price of under $35,000.

It looks like all they did was try to graft the Model 3 front end onto the Model Y rendering, creating an awkward looking appearance. I think the actual Model Y will have unique lighting assemblies better suited for an SUV, much like Model X is shaped differently than Model S.

Model Y: Space, Volume, Towing, Range, Off-Road Clearance, etc. All these are items we will want to know!

Of course, car seat fit and flexibility, accessory power sockets (5V USB, 12V, & 120V), interior lighting, etc., are all interesting extras to deal with, too!

Yes, Style is important, but let’s not get too tricky-Dickey with things like, only comes with Falcon Wing Doors, offer them as a upgraded package option, with more conventional doors on the base model. (Just my thoughts of the day!)

WOW. Well not really. More like yuck.

Ya, ya I know its just some person’s opinion on what it might look like but it is close to the current design language.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the pickup has a more traditional look, since I’m not really interested in any of these four anyway.

Holy crap, that’s an ugly rendering.

Meh, not S3XY. Trick is to get some of the chunky looks people like so much in SUVs into the design without messing up aerodynamics/range/design language too much. SUVs are about looking sporty in an outdoorsy sort of way, something that’s missing in Model X. I don’t think some sort of overblown hatchback will capture the people’s imagination.

Can’t spell UGLY without a “y”. I doubt it will look like that.

It is someone’s guess, based on a very iffy rendering from Tesla.

We’ll see what it looks like – when Tesla shows us.

In the lineup, why is the Model 3 taller/bigger than the Model S?

Hopefully they will learn from the Model X design mistakes and make a proper SUV with real utility.

Remember Y will have its own platform and Musk will not let that opportunity go unused!

I expect it to be much higher than X, mainly due to ground clearance. Also longer than 3.

Appreciate the effort but the Model 3 and Model Y don’t look right.

Beautiful. Not like S, X, and even 3, which are typically American : boring and conservative.
