In the automotive industry, there are electric cars and then there is Tesla. Get what am saying?
Let’s give credit where it’s due, what Tesla has done to the EV market is not only conspicuous but also immensely credible. More than any other player, Tesla has enabled the conversation and the competition to thrive.
The recent announcement by CEO Elon Musk that the Tesla Model Y, a new compact SUV will be coming around in 2020 just helps to make things a little merrier and juicer. But it the Model Y is visibly a build up from the Model 3 sedan that has been around for some time.
They share quite a lot of similarities with size being the main distinguishing characteristic with the latter being just a little bigger. The long-range Model Y offers enough room to seat 7 and has a range of 300 miles.
The performance version of the vehicle is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. This will be the company’s fifth car ever to hit the road, and it’s the company’s second attempt at a mass-market electric vehicle.
Tesla says the car will retail for $47,000 and should be around in the fall of 2020. Musk describes the Model Y summarily saying, “It has the functionality of an SUV, but it will ride like a sports car. So this thing will be really tight on corners.”
