Michael Harley said (about Elon Musk): “Tesla needs to widen its customer base from Elon and EV fans to mainstream consumers,” “The Model Y’s price and crossover design can do that, and if it enters the market soon enough, it will allow Tesla to keep pace with mainstream luxury brands like Audi, Jaguar and Volvo as they launch their own fleet of EV crossovers” External link

Jessica Caldwell said: "n> Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the Model Y crossover, a tall platform mate of the Model 3, that arrives in late 2020. Tesla. Elon Musk said Tesla will finally jump into the midsize crossover market with the Model Y, an electric SUV that looks a lot like an enlarged version of its top-selling Model 3 sedan, in late 2020 that's initially priced from $47,000. But unlike in the past, the battery-vehicle pioneer is going to face a range of competing crossovers. Musk, addressing an audience of loyal fans packed into the carmaker’s Los Angeles design studio, unveiled the new vehicle after a lengthy retelling of Tesla’s history and showing off all its models, from the original Roadster through the Tesla Semi. The addition of the crossover, smaller and cheaper than the current Model X, completes Tesla’s “sexy” themed lineup, he said. “It has the functionality of an SUV but will ride like a sports car,” Musk said. And as far range per charge, “expect true usable range of 300 miles”. Model Y prices will range from $39,000 for a base version due in 2021 to more than $60,000 for a performance-grade crossover. Tesla via Livestream. That range estimate appears to apply only to the $47,000 Long Range version of Model Y, while all-wheel-drive and performance versions will go 280 miles per charge and start at $51,000 and $60,000, respectively, based on a lineup chart Tesla showed at the event. A cheaper base version will start at $39,000 and offer 230 miles of range per charge, though it won’t arrive until early 2021, according to the chart. Although produced from the Model 3 platform, the roomier Model Y has 66 cubic feet of cabin space and will seat up to seven passengers, Musk said. While the pricing and specs are in line with details Musk tweeted earlier this month, he didn’t clarify where the vehicle will initially be built. During the company’s January 30 results call, he indicated that production at Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory was likely, though more recently Tesla has said that decision isn’t final. Musk’s track record for delivering vehicles on time and at the price promised has been mixed, so getting Model Y to market in about 18 months will be yet another test for the company. The debut is a brief respite for the colorful billionaire who’s been contending with new legal issues arising from last year’s settlement with the SEC over tweets about privatizing Tesla and a sudden reversal of his plan to shut down all Tesla’s stores as the company shifts to an online-only sales system. If Tesla executes to plan and delivers the Model Y on time, it will significantly benefit a young company that’s yet to post a profitable year. That’s because SUVs account for 49% of U.S. auto sales currently, with more than half of people buying them spending between $30,000 and $50,000, according to J.D. Power. Up to now, having only the bigger Model X with a starting price of about $80,000 and typically selling for more than $90,000, Tesla couldn't compete for that broader customer base. “Model Y represents Tesla’s biggest opportunity yet,” said Karl Brauer, executive publisher and analyst at Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader. “It’s price and body style should resonate with the majority of today’s carbuyers. This also makes the Model Y the most important vehicle in Tesla’s history. Every aspect of the Model Y, from design to launch to production, has the potential to improve – or damage – Tesla’s reputation with mainstream consumers”. Still, Model Y will arrive at a time when, unlike with Roadster in 2009 and Model S sedan in 2012, there will be direct competitors in the battery-powered crossover segment. Those range from Hyundai’s new electric Kona hatchback, priced from $36,450, to VW’s ID. Crozz SUV (due in 2022), Jaguar’s $69,500 I-PACE, the $74,700 Audi e-tron and numerous others. New competing products “will undoubtedly increase consumer acceptance of pure electric vehicles and grow the overall electric vehicle market but pose a major threat to Tesla’s ability to both sustain its market share performance at the top end of the market and replicate it at lower price points,” J.D. Power said. But unlike those rival vehicles, by the time it arrives the new Tesla won’t qualify for U.S. tax credits that helped defray the higher expense of its electric vehicles for years. “Every other Tesla has some kind of unique ‘wow’ factor, but the Model Y is essentially just a beefier, taller Model 3," External link
