To say Tesla has been busy lately is a bit of an understatement. It finally opened orders for its long-awaited $35,000 Standard Range Model 3, it reversed a decision to shutter some of its showrooms, and it showed off its V3 Supercharging. So why not keep the news coming with the unveil its next car… err SUV, the Model Y?
With an estimated 300 mile range and current starting price of $42,700 (a 230 mile, $39,000 Standard will begin production in 2021), the Model Y buts up against offerings from Kia and Hyundai. But once you start stacking features into the vehicle, it starts bleeding into the range of Audi’s E-Tron and Jaguar’s I-Pace.
One thing it won’t have are those Falcon doors found on the Model X. They’ve been both polarizing to potential customers and created a headache for the company during manufacturing.
