The Tesla Model 3 is no longer a secret, so it’s time to speculate about how Tesla’s next vehicles will look.
Considering how many preorders the Tesla Model 3 has garnered since it debuted, we wouldn’t expect the Tesla Model Y to make an appearance anytime soon as the American automaker concentrates on ramping up production for its entry-level sedan. Still, the Tesla Model Y is in the pipeline and will likely be built on the same chassis as the upcoming Model 3.
The Model Y is expected to be an entry-level crossover from Tesla, though not much is known about the model.
Last year CEO Elon Musk did tweet that the Model X’s falcon-wing doors will find their way to another model. Since we have seen the Tesla Model 3 and it doesn’t have falcon-wing doors, a safe bet would be the Model Y. That tweet however was deleted and now that it’s become common knowledge how troublesome the falcon-wing doors were to implement on the Model X, we wouldn’t be surprised if Musk backtracks on that statement.
Given how popular crossovers are in the U.S., an entry-level model priced around $45,000 could be another big hit for Tesla. But first the brand will need to meet expectations with the Model 3.
