The Tesla manufacturer is working on the all-new all-electric SUV which will represent the smaller and less expensive version of the Tesla Model X. It is the newest 2021 Tesla Model Y which should be presented sometime during next year. As first, it was said that the Model Y would be underpinned with the same platform used in the Model 3, but now, it seems that it will receive the entirely new architecture.
2021 Tesla Model Y powertrain
The brand-new 2021 Tesla Model Y will arrive as an all-electric vehicle as expected. It is not yet confirmed, the Model Y will most likely be powered by the same or similar powertrain as the Model S and Model X. So, the current lineup comes with several battery packs including a 75 kWh, 90 kWh, and 100 kWh battery pack, and it is possible that the Model Y will also be available with the same batteries. As for the range, the Model Y is expected to feature the similar numbers as the Model 3 which comes with a range of 215 miles.
2021 Tesla Model Y Design of exterior and interior
Of all, according to the latest news, the all-new 2021 Tesla Model Y will ride on the entirely new platform instead of the Model 3, 12-volt battery architecture which was the first plan. Of course, this means that it will no longer use a lead-acid battery.When it comes to the exterior design of the 2021 Tesla Model Y, there is still no official information except the teaser photo which has been recently revealed. The Model Y should be a bit wider or at least it could seem wider.It is very likely that the Model Y could also receive some similar interior design as the Model X. But, since the Model Y should be less expensive, its cabin will probably be simpler and might lack in some features. In the terms of design, the Model Y should look like the cabin of the Model 3 with the same design of the dashboard and tablet-like screen.
2021 Tesla Model Y Release date and price
The new 2021 Tesla Model Y should be presented sometime in the first half of 2021. Its price should be close to the price of the Model 3 which starts at around $35,000.
