Tonight, Elon Musk will take the stage at Tesla's design studio in Hawthorne, California, to uncover model Y, the electric car's latest model. So far we don't know much about Y, beyond the basics. It will be a small SUV. It will of course be completely electric. And it will be Tesla's fourth model currently on sale, and complete what we are going to call four sexies – it's Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y. (Ford owns the copyright to the name Model E, So, the & # 39; s had to do.]
At the event, Musk will lay out the car's specifications, special features and design highlights. Tesla will also offer test tours in the car, but previous experiences say that the participants are not behind the wheel itself ̵
Adding an SUV to their lineup is a logical next step for Tesla, which is constantly establishing itself as a mass automator and diverging new battery-powered challenges from its more established competitors. Car buyers, especially in America, are so keen on SUVs, that both Ford and GM have recently announced that they will no longer build cars to the US, and instead focus on SUVs, crossovers and pickup trucks. As the young car manufacturer seems to bring in new customers, it is smart to give people what they want.
This process started more than ten years ago with the Roadster, a two-seat sports car, that used to prove that electric cars can offer compelling performance. (It stopped building the car in 2012, but is preparing a revolutionary model to arrive next year.) Model S sedan followed, and then Model X, a seven-seat SUV. They were luxury cars, often selling for $ 100,000 or more.
As changed by Model 3, the little sedan that Tesla had promised for years as the car that would bring electric driving to the masses. It took Tesla a couple of years to work through "production hell" and come to a point where it could sell the car for the long-promised $ 35,000 prize, as it only reached last month. And Tesla comes from two quarters where it made profits, a rare company for the company.
So now it feels like the perfect time for Musk to introduce his new baby, one intended to expand Tesla's appeal to even more customers. 19659007] Looking at
Model Y reveals is scheduled to start at 8:00 am Pacific Time tonight, although Musk has a habit of kicking things a little late.
As with previous events, Tesla will live live on this on his website. You can find it at https://livestream.tesla.com/, although the page prompts visitors to sign up with their name, email address and phone number, promising to send an invitation to watch "in the hours leading up to the event "And if you can cope with the wait (or don't want to quit after midnight or later, depending on your time zone), it will probably put the whole thing on its YouTube page afterwards.
