Tesla's expansion strategy to be led by Model Y

Share

After Elon Musk revealed the upcoming Tesla Motors Model 3 past year, a new video has been floating in the surfaced over the weekend. The based model of Model S P100D just showed everyone that if you have less weight in the vehicle, then you can get more power as it accelerated from 0-60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds. As a matter of fact, Tesla revealed a year ago that it could see between 500,000 and a million examples of the Model Y being sold annually. Over the weekend, Unplugged Performance posted an even crisper video of Tesla's Model 3 out in the wild.

The Tesla Model Y is part of the company's plans to increase its yearly vehicle production. Future plans for Tesla then consist of a new pickup model - set to battle the likes of the Ford F-150 - as well as the development of a semi-trailer for full-size commercial duties.

Elon Musk had already stated that the feature may be included with the upcoming model 3 and may not be very costly. Apparently, this is to allow the vehicle to offer a completely autonomous form of driving.

Hoping to win the FA Cup a seventh time in his 21-year reign, Wenger could yet end one of his most hard seasons with silverware. The Sun have also revealed how Lincoln staff "stunned" Arsenal officials with one rather unusual request after the match.

So far, there is no formal announcement yet as to when Tesla will unveil the new Tesla Y Model.

The arrival of the SUV, along with its first mainstream auto, the Model 3, are tipped to finally push Tesla into profit. It is projected that the Model Y might possibly the most successful vehicle that would come out from Tesla.

Earlier today, Autocar released an interesting render which imagines what a Model Y might look like. The compact sedan is now scheduled to enter production in the second half of 2017, but the automaker has a substantial number of orders to fulfill before extra capacity is created to produce other models, including the existing Model S and Model X. The pace of scaling up production is one of the biggest current challenges for the automaker.
