The 2020 Tesla Model Y Debut Was Surprisingly Tame

The 2020 Tesla Model Y Debut Was Surprisingly Tame

No surprise debut of some future model, no crazy new features, nothing unexpected… no fun?

The 2020 Tesla Model Y has arrived, making its grand entrance in a live event broadcast from Tesla’s design studio in Hawthorne, California. However, the debut really didn’t bring anything terribly surprising, despite widespread predictions to the contrary. In fact, the whole thing was more like a history lesson than a typical Tesla debut event. But why?

All-new Kia Soul review roundup within

The car debuted at the 2018 Lost Angeles Auto Show, and it is just now starting to hit showrooms.

Visual Comparison: 2020 Tesla Model Y vs. 2019 Tesla Model 3

Visual Comparison: 2020 Tesla Model Y vs. 2019 Tesla Model 3

Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y Are Too Similar For A Reason

Tesla’s obsession with simplistic futuristic design is perhaps best captured in almost terrifyingly similar stature of its two most important cars - the Tesla Model 3 and the recently revealed Tesla Model Y. Unraveled secrets of the new mid-size electric crossover led the world almost unanimously settle on the fact that the new Model Y is essentially an ideal conjugation between the reasonable Model 3 and the lush Model X.

While the design cleverly infiltrates the new mid-size crossover into the world of more expensive coupe-looking propositions on the market, it also resoundingly accepts all the styling cleverness of Tesla’s cheapest model. The Tesla Model Y differs from the Model 3 in what seems to be a few minor details, but it is clear that all of them matter a lot. I explored all the design minutiae between the Tesla Model 3 and the Tesla Model X for you, and it becomes clear - the Tesla Model Y is the smartest thing Tesla ever did. And that because almost nothing is entirely new.

One of The 2020 Tesla Model Y's Biggest Rivals, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Arrives in 2020

One of The 2020 Tesla Model Y’s Biggest Rivals, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Arrives in 2020

I can’t wait for the Tesla Model Y - Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo staredown!

Just as Tesla continues to bask in the attention generated by the Model Y’s unveiling, Porsche is looking to steal the California-based automaker’s thunder by announcing a very important detail about its own all-electric crossover, the Taycan Cross Turismo. None other than Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume, disclosed in Porsche’s annual sustainability report that the Taycan Cross Turismo will launch at the end of 2020. The announcement refutes earlier rumors indicating that the Taycan Cross Turismo isn’t scheduled to arrive until late 2021. Could this accelerated timetable have anything to do with Tesla’s launch of the Model Y last week? Porsche won’t admit to it, but it does feel like where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Wall Street is Largely Bearish on The Tesla Model Y

Concerns remains surrounding Tesla even after the Model Y’s launch

The Tesla Model Y finally arrived last week amid much hype and anticipation for Tesla’s latest product. But, just as there are people who were excited about the Model Y’s arrival, there, too, are those who weren’t very impressed by Tesla’s new ride. Count Wall Street in the latter group as Tesla’s shares dropped by almost five percent at the market’s close last Friday, sparking concerns that there remains a lot of questions regarding Tesla’s production future and the prospect of the Model Y competing against the Model 3.

2019 Jeep Compass Hybrid

The aggressive, carefree butch SUV is now environment-friendly at heart

The Compass has been in Jeep’s stable for around 13 years now. It was unveiled as a concept at the 2002 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Although revealed as a two-door concept, the Compass was ultimately launched as a four-door crossover four years after it made its world premiere in Detroit. Five years into production, Jeep decided to give the Compass a face that resonated with the Grand Cherokee. Soon, the Compass started receiving its own identity as with many off-road features and packages available. In 2017, the second-generation of the Compass was launched, and it replaced its predecessor, as well as the Jeep Patriot. It will not be the worst thing to say that even though it could not garner big numbers for the automaker from 2007 to 2017, there was consistent growth in the sales figures. However, 2018 turned out to be the breakthrough year for the Jeep Compass. Jeep sold 171,167 examples of the Compass in 2018, an increase of 87,914 from 83,253 copies it sold in 2017. That’s more than 100-percent growth! Carrying over its rich form from last year, the Compass came to Switzerland with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The Compass did not come alone; the Renegade accompanied it with the same mill under its hood. It’s like two brothers wearing the same clothes to go to a party. That’s cute.

2020 Tesla Model Y - Quirks and Features

Everything Important About The 2020 Tesla Model Y

The most anticipated electric mid-size crossover, the 2020 Tesla Model Y, was finally revealed at the dedicated event in Hawthorne, California, Thursday night. It immediately took the Internet by storm to reinvigorate a whole new variety of potential electric vehicle buyers. With the reveal of the new mid-sized crossover, the most ubiquitous and recognizable Tesla, the Model S, is threatened to lose that imaginary title to the new Tesla Model Y. Elon Musk, who showcased the new Tesla, predicted the Model Y’s demand to be double that of the Tesla Model 3. And that one is the best selling luxury sedan in the U.S.

However, the 2020 Tesla Model Y may not be as revolutionary, or even evolutionary, as some of us have hoped. Despite the Model Y’s clear similarities to the Model 3, the new electric crossover is quite exciting, and I’m here to give you all the astounding facts about it.

The 2020 Tesla Model Y Represents a Turning Point for The Future of Tesla

The 2020 Tesla Model Y Represents a Turning Point for The Future of Tesla

The Model Y’s debut shows that Tesla has graduated to mainstream brand status

Tesla finally unveiled the Model Y. It was a long time in the making, but now that it’s here, we can start saving up our hard-earned money and wait for the Model Y to arrive so we can pluck down some cash to buy one. But before that time comes — it might take a while because it’s Tesla — there’s something about the Model Y that struck us beyond all the bells and whistles that Tesla is famous for. Like the Model 3, the Model Y didn’t generate the same type of buzz as the Model S and Model X did when they made their respective debuts. This isn’t an indictment on the Model 3 and Model Y. It’s a realization that Tesla has become more than just a boutique brand with ambitious promises of game-changing technologies. It’s become a mainstream brand.

We have a shortened version that last just four minutes!

At this point, you probably already know that the 2020 Tesla Model Y has been revealed. Some have praised it for being what it is while others have been disappointed by the fact that it’s more of a Model 3 hatchback than a true-to-life crossover. Be that as it may, Elon Musk chose a weird time to show off the Model Y, with the event kicking off at 8pm PDT, meaning a good portion of the world was in dreamland when the event took place.

The first video that you’ll see below is the full video of the Model Y’s launch – it runs nearly 34 minutes with the debut taking place right around the 27-minute mark.

The 2020 Tesla Model Y Might Help to Introduce New Battery Technology

The 2020 Tesla Model Y Might Help to Introduce New Battery Technology

Are quicker charge times and more range on the horizon?

Without a doubt, the biggest hurdle to widespread EV adoption is the current battery technology standard, specifically range-per-charge and the time it takes to top off at the plug. At the end of the day, cars are all about convenience, and if it takes too long to get from A to B, it doesn’t really matter how good a car looks or how quick it’ll hit 60 mph. For now, Tesla’s Supercharger system will provide 170 miles in about 30 minutes - not bad for an EV, but nowhere near the kind of miles-per-minute you get with internal combustion and a gas pump. Electric vehicle battery technology needs a level up, and the debut of the 2020 Tesla Model Y could provide a perfect opportunity for exactly that.
