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.

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.
