PostHeaderIcon The Tesla Model Y Will Make its Debut Much Sooner Than Expected

Now that the Tesla Model 3 is officially rolling off of the line and the first 30 owners have taken delivery, it’s time to turn our attention to something else – the Tesla Model Y. It’s not only the model that will complete the S3XY lineup that Elon Musk has boasted about for so long, but also promises to be an affordable all-electric crossover for those who can’t necessarily afford the larger Model X. Up until now, the plan was for the Model Y to be built on an entirely new platform that would make it different from every other vehicle in Tesla’s lineup and it would also ditch the 12-volt battery architecture in an attempt to simplify the production process (no 12-volt system means less wiring to install by hand.) But, as it usually goes with the automotive industry, things can change overnight, and during Musk’s August 2nd earnings call, he admitted that he was being overly ambitious and would, indeed, bring the Model Y to market faster by using the same architecture as that of the Model 3.

Obviously, by deciding to use the same underpinnings as the Model 3, Tesla will cut back on its research and development costs and time spent considerably. And, that smaller crossover that was originally slated for production in late 2019 or early 2020 could, potentially, go into production by mid-to-late 2018 if things go well.
It’s still quite possible that the Model Y will ditch that 12-volt system, which would make it the first Tesla model to do so, and rumor even has it that it might get those falcon-wing doors from the Model X. In the first half of 2017, Tesla managed to ship 47,000 vehicles, which isn’t bad but is still a far cry from meeting Musk’s goal of delivering 1 million cars by 2020. As such, the Model Y – and the Model 3, for that matter – are absolutely paramount to hitting that goal. If the Model Y can make it into production faster by borrowing DNA from the new Model 3, it will give Tesla a much better position to meet that extremely ambitious goal.
