Is This The Tesla We've All Been Waiting For?

Unveiled in March 2019, the production of the Tesla Model Y started in January 2020 at its Fermont plant and the deliveries started in mid-March 2020. While Tesla has another SUV in its lineup, like the bigger crossover SUV, the Tesla Model X with a starting price of $85,000. This price tag makes the car unaffordable for most buyers (almost all, baring a few with a six-digit salary). Tesla attains its majority sales from Model 3 and Model S sedans.

Safety
The latest model from Tesla is designed to be the safest vehicle in its class with large crumple zones, low center of gravity, and a rigid body structure. It has cameras mounted on the rear, side, and at the front of the car for an autopilot that provides 360o visibility. Ultrasonic sensors that detect cars nearby, prevent potential collisions, and assist in parking.

Interior
The car has a giant 15-inch touch-screen that receives regular over-the-air updates for better performance, features, and functionality. The Extensive Glass Sunroof provides UV protection and makes the cabin feel airier. The Tesla Model Y typically seats 5 people in 2 rows. Tesla has also hinted at a 7 seater version of the Model Y. There is a possibility that the company could launch a 3rd-row seating optional upgrade which will make the Model Y more practical.

Varients
This is Tesla’s relatively affordable family crossover SUV and the price of this model could be around $46,000 for the base level. The company offers this model in 2 varients
     Long-range model
This model can travel up to 316 miles on a single charge. It has a top speed of 135 mph with a 0-60 mph timing of 4.8 seconds. The price of this model could be around $53,000

     Performance model
This model can travel up to 315 miles on a single charge. It has a top speed of 145 mph with a 0-60 mph timing of 3.5 seconds. That’s when a car enters the sports car territory. The price of this model could be around $61,000

Supercharging capability is also available for both the models which give the car a range of 158 miles with charging for just 15 mins. Looking at the size of the car and considering the fact that it’s an all-wheel-drive crossover SUV which is as long as the BMW X3, getting that timing from a family car is quite impressive!
