If history is any guide, Tesla’s enigmatic executive won’t just pull a sheet off of the 2020 Model Y and be done with it — there’s bound to be a few surprises. (And if you’re listening, Elon, we’ve got a list of a few things we’d like updates on…)
In case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, the forthcoming Model Y is expected to be heavily based on thesedan seen above. Vis-a-vis the company’s entry-level electric offering, that the Model Y will be about 10 percent larger, cost about 10 percent more, and feature slightly less range. There’s a whole lot of other blanks to be filled in, of course, including on-sale date, performance specs, and, oh, yeah… how it looks.
Tesla fans, auto enthusiasts and investors — bull and bear alike — will all be watching the livestream intently. We’re even guessing a few late-night lights will be on. There are lots of questions yet to be answered about the Model Y, and plenty of questions about the state of the embattled automaker in general. We’ll know more later tonight starting at 8 p.m.
