A slide used in Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s presentation to shareholders on Tuesday gave us a new look at the upcoming Model Y.
While the crossover SUV is expected to be built on the Model 3’s platform, a profile shot of the crossover SUV seems to show a bulkier, more aggressive styling. A high-aching front fender seems to extend into the doors and and large wheels seem to accommodate high-diameter wheels. Musk also quipped that the Model Y may not have a steering wheel.
A previous rendering of the Model Y showed the vehicle head-on, revealing a pretty typical crossover shape.
Tesla has released few details of the Model Y beyond the fact it will leverage Model 3 technology and production learnings. Investment in the Model Y program will only become significant in 2019. Musk said the car will be unveiled in March, but won’t hit roads until the first half of 2020.
During Tesla’s Q1 earnings call, Musk also made a bold prediction for the upcoming all-electric crossover. “I think Model Y is going to be a manufacturing revolution,” he said without offering more specifics.
Tesla has yet to announce where the Model Y will be produced.
