And it is that after a few weeks in which even Elon Musk himself added suspense and humor to the presentation of this new Tesla Model Y with the union of the initials of all his cars -S3XY, Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y- we already have the newly released Model Y.
This is a car that would be to put it somehow the older brother of the Tesla Model 3 And it is that after so many years talking about this new car, yesterday it finally became official. The bad thing is that like all the cars that are presented in Tesla is the delivery time for them, in this case it is not different from the rest of the models and it will be available from next year 2020, but not at the beginning, no, at the end of the year or even early 2021 in the US.

480 km of autonomy and 7 seats for this new Tesla SUV
This is the cover letter for this Model Y. With a range of 480 km and 7 seats we can say that this is truly a spectacular electric SUV in every way. Those present at the launch of the car last morning were not disappointed and this is like all Tesla cars, a great car. The truth is that Elon Musk has charisma and knows how to present his products really well, but above all what he knows is how to keep the secret of the design of this new vehicle of the brand.
On the other hand, it is important to mention that Musk himself has assured that Model 3 and this new Model Y share 75% of the components so we are facing a larger version in every way but with a design line and accessories equal to the previous model, which makes the price of this car somewhat lower than many even expected. The interior of this car is really the same (with more space) than the one we have in the Model 3, in this way we can see how the glass roof offers an impressive feeling of spaciousness, the center console has more space or the dashboard with the Huge center screen looks great.
Design and performance of the Model Y
Seen from the outside, this new Tesla Model Y seems to us a car with lines really the same as the Model 3, obviously it will be necessary to see it in person or even side by side, but in general they are quite similar. This does not mean that it is not a "neck-breaker" car in terms of design., yes, the kind that make you turn your neck to the maximum to follow it when it is running. In addition, the colors that it has that are the same as for the rest of the versions make them very striking. In short, the design is spectacular.
If we focus on the benefits of this Model Y, we realize that the configuration we have available on the Tesla website It is exactly the same as we have for the Model 3. The model with the best finishes will have about 450 kilometers of autonomy and a maximum speed of 250 km / h thanks to its dual motor. In the most basic model, the autonomy offered by Tesla is reduced to 370 km and its maximum speed will reach the not inconsiderable 200 km / h. All of these are figures offered by the manufacturer but as you already know, all of this will depend on many external factors such as ambient temperature, whether we drive through the city, highway or highway, speeds, etc ...
Tesla Model Y Price
Undoubtedly we have reached the key point of this presentation and of the new Model Y. The truth is that the Tesla are not vehicles that we can consider "accessible" for all users and we know that the services offered by Tesla with its superchargers, guarantees or the after-sales service without taking into account the quality of the software and hardware, make the price skyrocket in all its models. The California-based firm is doing a very good job in recent years and it is true that The Model 3 and this Model Y have much more affordable prices than the Model S or Model X.
The launch price of the simplest version of this Model Y will start at $ 39.000, while with all the extras that the user can imagine placing in the new car will make the price of these reach 60.000 dollars. These prices surely end up being higher in the rest of Europe if we count taxes and others. In short, today 40.000 euros are not an affordable price for most of us but those who want to buy a Tesla already know that what this brand offers will not be found in others.
