Take my money!
I am relieved to not care about Model 3 depreciation two years from now.
Will keep the 3 and trade in the S for a Y. Sweet.
Mods: we need a Model Y forum now please.
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."
"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.
Sure enough, straight from the Q4 earnings letter:
"Since Model Y will be built on the Model 3 platform and is designed to share about 75% of its components with Model 3, the cost of the Model Y production line should be substantially lower than the Model 3 line in Fremont, and the production ramp should also be faster."
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.
Elon tweeted "cost about 10% more & have slightly less range for same battery"
so just 38k?? really
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.
I wonder if Elon will set a goal on 3/14 (Pi day!)
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).
