    I would be interested especially if it shows other cars around it to get a sense of the size and ground clearance.

    Thanks for the video! I think the size is perfect with a blend of the Model 3 and Model X together.

    This car is gonna sell like hotcakes!

    That would be a first!

    :set snark_mode=off

    Very nice. I would actually be more interested in this than the 3. If Model 3 can have walk up/away keyfobs then I'll presume the Y will, too. I'll get used to the lack of IC.

    I am going to get one of these when they come out! I have a model 3 and a family so the model Y will be perfect for me. Does anyone know when they are likely to hit the UK?
