    I am relieved to not care about Model 3 depreciation two years from now.

    This is where I need Model 3 leasing to kick in .... just bridge me till the Y is available.

    Happy to put a deposit now on the Y - then let me lease a Model 3 month to month until it’s available - please?

    I wonder what '10% bigger' means. How much bigger is MS than M3?

    10% bigger likely by overall volume. Everyone expects the Model Y to be taller. It doesn't seem like a lot, so it will be interesting to see where that's distributed.

    The hatch really helps increasing volume utility.

    Some interesting tidbits from electrek:
    "Detailed specs and pricing information will be announced at the event next week and working Model Y prototypes will be available for test rides."
    and
    "Tesla has been debating making on a new platform or using the Model 3 platform over the past few years and it’s unclear where they have landed on the issue."
    I thought the Q4 letter said it would and have a huge percentage in common with the model 3?

    I don't know where Electrek is getting this-

    Tesla flip-flopped on building Model Y on it's own platform in the first half of 2017, but the issue was settled in August 2017 earnings call when Elon said his exec team had walked him back from over-engineering the Model Y and which would have severely pushed back it's schedule.

    The Model Y is built on the Model 3 platform. It share 76% of M3 parts. Elon most recent comments state that they still plan to substantially reduce wiring complexity with the "redundant flex circuit", which should reduce wiring from the Model 3's 1.5km down to ~100m.

    Give me a “tall” Model 3 - basically, like a CR-V is to a Civic - and we’re Golden here.

    Don’t over engineer the damned thing, just give me a commanding view of the road, some extra cargo space and our boy wonder Elon will conquer the world.

    10% would be $37,500. That would be BASE price. Without dual-motor or anything else. Whenever they’d eventually get to that. It took 2 years of Model 3 production for them to start building the base model.

    Yes, we should expect Tesla to reimburse 200,000 owners every time they reduce prices.

    So you're thinking 2021 for SR MY?

    i'm ok with RWD if it includes 3 row at that price... (one can dream).
