Tesla Model Why?

Is this supposed to be a crossover or have they even admitted that much yet? It looks like a cross between the 3 and the X and the only other things they have indicated so far is that they do not know where they plan on building it (so the factory might not exist yet) and it does not have mirrors: https://jalopnik.com/the-tesla-model...ops-1826599630

Compact cross-over is what sticks in my head. But people talk so much about what Tesla and Elon are doing .. not sure if it was a rumor or a quote or a press release.

It was likely a tweet?

You’d think that Tesla would concentrate on filling orders that it has for the 3(even at a loss) before expanding to a crossover... but of course, a crossover would be much more profitable than a sedan, soooo...

New models don't just appear like mushrooms after a rain. There's a long lead time for RnD. Even if they're still gearing up their current new model, the next model BETTER be in the works or they would stuck with a several year gap after it is profitable where they won't be able to compete in the CUV market.

Likewise, designers are different than production engineers. After the new model goes from one step to the next, they don't just fire the whole design group because they're not needed...

I'm cool with a Tesla crossover. If they put falcon wing doors on it, I'm out, though.

The Model Y is to the Model X - what the Model 3 is to the Model S.

Unfortunately, they are talking about putting Falcon doors on the Model Y. Which nixes any roof racks, and complicates the production - and the structure.
