Seven-seat Tesla Model Y revealed with 300-mile range

Seven-seat Tesla Model Y revealed with 300-mile range

The company itself is known for ups and downs, which would better suit a roller coaster than a vehicle. Tesla says the Y "has the functionality of an SUV, but rides like a sports car"; that extends to having a third row of seats optionally available, the seven-seat Y available from 2021.

Still, the Model Y, like all Tesla's models, has already seen pre-production delays. He added that he believes the Model Y could account for up to 20% of Tesla's total sales within the next three years and could ultimately boost the company's financial performance. It is also the cheapest vehicle that the firm has produced costing from $35,000. Model Y crossover electric vehicle during an unveiling event in Hawthorne, California, U.S., on Friday, March 15, 2019. The new Model Y may also help Tesla shift its lineup toward the tastes of USA consumers, who are increasingly ditching sedans for bigger crossovers and SUVs. Ordering the auto requires a $2500 (R36 250) refundable deposit.

In October, Musk said "significant progress" had been made on the Model Y and that he had approved the prototype for production in 2020. The slowest Model Y, the Standard, will hit 60 in 5.9 seconds and have a top speed of 120 miles per hour, while Performance buyers can expect to be able to achieve 150 miles per hour. The top speed for this variant is 120 miles per hour. The Model Y Performance, with the Long Range and Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive variants to follow. The Standard Range is good for 230 miles, while the Long Range can hit 300 miles on a full charge. Sure enough, it looks a lot closer to the Model 3 we're used to seeing now than some might have hoped for.

Musk has been under fire in recent months for his behavior, his picking fights with the SEC, and the production challenges that have faced Tesla, but taking a step back, it is hard even for the more cynical among us not to be genuinely impressed with what Musk and Tesla have achieved. Elon Musk has claimed all Teslas may be able to fully drive themselves by the end of this year, and do so while you nap by the end of 2020.

Ex-White House counsel Ty Cobb calls Robert Mueller ‘American hero’
The unusually strong statement further claimed that "the Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the president ". Nor was Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr Mueller as special counsel.

Tesla's dual-motor system uses computers to control the traction sent to the rear and front wheels, allowing for better handling and traction control. The Models S and X share just 30 percent of their parts.

Tesla's online configurator reveals five available paint options: Black, Midnight Silver Metallic (US$1,500), Deep Blue Metallic (US$1,500), Pearl White Multi-Coat (US$2,000) and Red Multi-Coat (US$2,500). "You can choose wheel sizes from 18" to 20" for the auto.

The high-end models are scheduled to launch next fall, with the standard version following in the spring of 2021.

The event at Tesla's Design Studio was very quick, with most of Musk's stage time centering around a retrospective of the company's accomplishments since 2008.
