    From seeing the images I believe the model Y will have a big front window like the model x

    Since the Model Y will have a hatch, I think there's only two options-
    1. The front window will go 2/3 (like the X), with the hatch taking up the back 1/3
    2. Like the Panoramic Model S it will be front window 1/3, centre 1/3, and hatch 1/3

    The front window on the X is very expensive and nothing like it will be on the Y. I expect the front windshield will be much like the 3.

    The 3 has door pockets, which the S does not.

    What would be the difference between the model 3 rear glass vs a model Y front glass that looks like the model x

    I don't think having just 1 door on each side is a good idea. In inclement weather, if a door is open, the whole interior will get wind, rain, snow,... blown in. Also, what if the person(s) in the 2nd row don't want to be exposed to the outside when the front row person gets in and out?

    Does not look like it will fit a 3rd row. Hope the hatch is powered.

    Nah, that’s a Gen 2 Prius.

    You were expecting it to look like anything other than a small X?

    I was hoping it would have a longer roof line before sloping. Like the CR-V, Rav 4, or CX-5. I'm still waiting to see the real deal but I don't think I'll get 3rd row. Still others will jump on this allowing for a larger used X market.

    I was hoping Tesla would have something akin to the Autocar design. This is just a Model 3 wagon. I’m guessing it’ll have maybe 0.75-1 inch higher ground clearance than the Model 3. What a waste of an opportunity to do something cool and fun. The bean counters have hit Tesla!

    They are releasing their version of what is the most popular type of consumer car in the country. This isn't the place to do crazy.

    I do have to say that hopefully it has something fairly unique because otherwise this does seem lazy.

    I made this earlier today and then didn't post it because I didn't want to be pessimistic. But after reading this thread, apparently I'm not the first to have these evil thoughts. I'm nervous my faith in Franz will be broken.

    Oh gosh. That shape does look dangerously close to the Prius. Aztek not as much. But let’s hope it looks beautiful.

    Certainly it'll be a Tesla -- one huge screen complete with fart noises -- but it won't come stock with 35'' off-road tires or air rockets. Crazy is for the Roadster and, from the sound of Elon's tweets, the truck. (Which may or may not be a good idea, but that's for another thread.)
