Tesla has gradually built up its car lineup over the years. We’ve since seen the company introduce a proper sedan, the Model S, and the Model X crossover. As the company gears up to start producing its first mass-market electric car, the Model 3, it’s also going to reveal some Model Y details in the coming week. This has been confirmed by none other than Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Not much is known about the Model Y at this point in time. It was previously expected that this might be an all-electric truck from Tesla but the latest reports suggest that the Model Y might actually be a crossover version of the Model 3.
Musk has previously mentioned that the Model Y won’t be coming out at least for a few years so there’s ample time for the company to start the hype machine for this vehicle before it actually shows it off.
In a private Twitter conversation with Ars Technica, Musk hinted that the company is going to talk more about the much-rumored Model Y next week.
Now we don’t know how much Tesla is going to reveal about this car at this point in time but it should be interesting to see what it’s planning to do in the future.
Tesla will obviously be focusing much of its energy to the Model 3. It’s planning to start volume production of the $35,000 electric car by the summer this year so that deliveries can begin as planned.
