    I'm personally not a big fan of how it looks. Almost like a perverted Model 3. Model 3 is perfect in size.

    Well it's meant to be a Large Car... I mean Crossover! At least wait until you see it live before passing your final judgement.

    Agreed... I think you read they both share the same "platform". That may translate into sharing the exact same wheelbase & track, but in order to fit that third row, I'm guessing the Model 3's platform required a stretch of at least an inch or two in both dimensions... we'll see soon enough.

    This is a very good first effort. I couldn't help but notice that the wheel size changes between the two GIFs. This makes me suspect that the wheelbase for the Y is actually longer and that one shouldn't scale to make the center of the wheels align, but to pick one wheel (say the front), and scale to make the wheel (sans tire) be the same.

    Okay, so here are a few more samples of perfectly aligning the diameter of the front 20" wheel of a Model PY and P3 from Tesla's renderings. With all things being equal (which they probably aren't) it appears the Y is significantly larger in all dimensions, including the wheelbase as suspected. It is after all, a Crossover or CUV. The track width is harder to tell but it too is probably larger as well. (To see better and differentiate the two, please click onto the pix to ENLARGE, thanks!)

    That's exactly what I did. The rear wheel (sans tire) is perfectly matched for size and position, and the rest fell into place however it did.

    Using comparison between the Model S and Model X,
    I wonder how much efficiency penalty the Model Y would have compared to the Model 3?

    Tesla Model S, 3, X takes on Audi e-tron in Autobahn range and efficiency test

    Note: I'm still puzzle about switching to the Model Y from the Model 3 just for getting a hatchback,
    while I don't need an SUV.
