Tesla Model Y
 
The Model Y is set to be revealed next week, unless someone slips the cover early...

Different headlights to the 3, that's for sure.
It has a face. But... White mirrors?

For only $1000 extra, you can get body color matched mirrors.

Speaking of mirrors, it would be nice if Musk pushed state and federal laws to allow cameras instead of mirrors. Eliminating them will go a long way towards improving the range of these EVs.

On second thought the above picture may not be the Model Y but a clever PhotoShop job of a Model X...

Paste the 3's bumper and non-grille, done?

It would be strange if Tesla used the same style headlights as the X, but fractionally smaller as the car is more narrow, while each model had unique headlights up to now?
And even then, why not the 3's headlights?
So I don't know. Ah well, in 6 days we will know.

The model Y will be built in Gigafactory 1 by... robots?

It did not work with the Model 3. You cannot experiment too much if you are desperate to raise the output at the same time.
But time has moved on and lessons have been learned. The Model Y offers a clean slate with less pressure.
This could be interesting.

Still - white mirrors?

Giga 1 is here in RENO? There's room for the line, but he still has to build and empty some of it. Wonder where the people to work it come from.

Since paying off the last bond in cash, where is needed investment cash coming from?

Production would start somewhere next year at the earliest, so there's still time for all of that.
Some of the robots used in the first attempt to robotize the Model 3 production line should be available, with upgrades.

30-something states already don't require outside mirrors, but since the FMVSS do, you have to have them to sell a car here. Stupid.

That's almost certainly a photoshop. The teaser pick on Tesla's site doesn't match any of it's lines.

Not sure. It could still be a Windows Paint job... ;)

The Model Y page announces a 14 march livestream of the unveiling.
