China lifts Tesla Model 3 import suspension

Tesla Model Y

A Standard Range version goes for 230 miles between charges, while the Dual Motor AWD and Performance get 280 miles of range per charge. The vehicles can be configured to include 7 seats for an additional $3,000.

With that big of trivia out of the way, the Model Y is expected to be largely based on the Model 3.

Musk also said the Model Y will be powered by the same battery as the Model 3. Ordering the vehicle requires a $2,500 refundable deposit. Even with the reduced range, Tesla is predicting demand to be perhaps 50 percent higher for the Model Y than the Model 3 owing to the former's crossover body style.

Model Y Lineup
Elon Musk set to unveil Tesla's latest passenger vehicle tonight in Los Angeles

Tesla will begin taking orders for the Model Y shortly after Thursday's reveal.

The Model Y could accelerate from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.

That plan - later scrapped - ushered in an ongoing period of turmoil at the company, from Musk's public battles with regulators, a flurry of securities lawsuits, cost cutting and layoffs across the company.

Petrol stocks fell by 5.8 million barrels, compared to analysts' forecasts in a 2.5 million barrel survey at Reuters. USA crude oil production also dipped, falling by 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 12 million bpd.


The vehicle is created to use a lot of the same parts as the Model 3 (Musk put the number at 75 percent in an earnings call earlier this year) so ramping up production shouldn't be as hard. But last week, Tesla reversed course and said it would leave many stores open and raised prices back by about 3 percent. "There was a time when electric cars seemed very stupid and it wasn't that long ago", Musk told the audience.

Musk has promised an easier production ramp of the Model Y as it shares about three-quarters of its parts with the Model 3 and would need only half the capital expenditures of the sedan.

A lot is known about the Model Y thanks to the loose lips of CEO Elon Musk talking about it over the past three years.

Teams will be required to designate players as a pitcher or position player before each player's first day on the active roster. The agreement will also limit September call-ups to 28, instead of the current maximum of 40 allowed under the current policy.


Tesla will ultimately offer the Model Y in four configurations.

A side look at the Model Y. Suppliers were originally told production would start in November 2019, sources told Reuters previous year.

But now that Tesla has shown some stability in Model 3 production numbers, the Model Y will give the company a new challenge. In January, he said Tesla had ordered the tooling needed to build the vehicle.
