2020 Tesla Model Y Vs 2019 Tesla Model X
The 2020 Tesla Model Y is here, promising all the tricks and tech that the California brand can muster, but in a small, yet practical package. But the question is this - how does it stack up against the Tesla Model X SUV? To find out, we compared the two in terms of their exterior design, interior design, and powertrain specs.
Everyone’s Going Electric, Including James Bond Himself
As good as he is at foiling international criminals from their evil schemes, not even James Bond himself can stop the onslaught of electrification in the auto industry. Proof of that lies in the next Bond film where 007’s ride-of-choice will be the Aston Martin Rapide E. The British automaker’s first-ever electric car joins a long list of Aston Martin models to appear in a James Bond film. The yet-to-be-titled Bond movie — it’s working title is Bond 25 — is scheduled to release in April 2020. It’s the 25th movie in the long-standing franchise, so you can expect it to have no shortage of surprises, including the array of gadgets and weapons that will be included in the Rapide E’s arsenal.
First Reviews of the 2020 Kia Soul Are Overwhelming Positive
The Kia Soul is a car that looks tall and boxy, but it doesn’t really look like an SUV. It melds excellent practicality with a good drive and quirky looks to attract buyers, and the all-new 2020 Soul continues this tradition, only it does it better in every single area. 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
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
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
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.
Did Anyone See Tesla’s Pickup Truck Being Teased At The Tesla Model Y Launch?
Elon Musk is crazy. Elon Musk has no chill. Elon Musk is a frickin’ genius! While the whole world was eagerly watching the Tesla Model Y’s unveil, no one realized that the Model Y actually had company. Musk finally had to pull the bird out of the cage on his own. Elon Musk revealed that when the credits were rolling after the webcast was over, Tesla sneakily pushed in a teaser image of the long-awaited Tesla pickup truck. Did you grab a look of it? Neither did we, until now.
Is the 2020 Tesla Model Y Just a Model 3 Hatchback?
Tesla just dropped the new 2020 Model Y, completing its S3XY lineup with a compact-crossover complement to its existing Model S midsize sedan, Model X SUV, and Model 3 compact sedan. However, some are questioning whether or not the new Y is truly a crossover, rather than simply a Model 3 hatchback. We take a look and decide for ourselves.
2020 Tesla Model Y - Quirks and Features
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
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.
This 2020 Tesla Roadster Shooting Brake Has My Mind Firing on All Cylinders
There’s no denying that Tesla has come a long way since it threw a battery pack and a badge on a Lotus and called in the Tesla Roadster. The brand now has four models in its range with a pickup truck and a semi on the way, potential range has nearly doubled compared to the original roadster, and Tesla is on the horizon of finding some pretty stiff competition in a segment it once had a dominating stronghold on. A decade after the original Roadster debuted, Elon Musk presented us with what is, essentially, the second-gen Roadster. This time around, however, it holds the title of being Tesla’s most aggressive-looking model and even delivers supercar-like performance with the caveat that it also comes with a supercar-like price in its best form. So, while the original Tesla Roadster has broken the record by traveling more than any other car in human history (Elon Musk’s roadster that was sent into space), the new roadster is breaking its own records. Even with figures like 7,376 pound-feet of torque, 620 miles per charge, or 0-to-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, we’re never truly happy and always want more. And, that’s exactly why this rendering of the Tesla Roadster as a shooting brake as tickled our interest in a way that few renderings ever do. It’s a forbidden fruit and ever seeing one is a long shot, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream, right?
In Case You Missed it, Here’s The Full Debut of the 2020 Tesla Model Y
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. If that’s where you were and you don’t feel like sifting through potentially thousands of videos on Youtube, we’ve put together two videos just for you. 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. If you watch from the beginning, you’ll get a cool history lesson, but that’s about it. Of course, if you’re like me and don’t have a lot of time, then you might want to check out the second video that’s posted below. We’ve broken the debut down into less than four minutes so you can watch the whole thing without wasting any significant time of your life. Go ahead and check them out below!
Bugatti’s Next New Model Could Be an All-Electric Daily Driver
Hot on the heels of unveiling the world’s most expensive new car, Bugatti is already looking towards its next project, and it might not be what most people expect. A new hypercar is seen as the default answer to any queries about a new Bugatti, but this proposed model doesn’t fall under that classification. Instead of a hypercar, Bugatti is looking to introduce a second and far more affordable model to its lineup, one that is characterized as a best-in-segment daily driver. More importantly, it’s an electric vehicle. There’s still no timetable for this proposed model, in large part because Bugatti’s big wigs have yet to make a decision on the car. If it does get the green light, don’t expect this Bugatti to feature Chiron-level power. It’s still going to be fast and powerful, but it will also put premium importance on luxury and comfort. Could this be the time that we finally see Bugatti dust off the Galibier name and bring it to life?
Elon Musk Debuts the 2020 Tesla Model Y With 230-300 Miles of Range and an Entry Price of $39,000
Tesla has unveiled the final entry in its S3XY all-electric lineup - the 2020 Model Y! Revealed in a live stream event broadcast from Hawthorne, California, the Model Y offers impressive performance and surprising practicality, including a top speed up to 150 mph and optional seating for seven. Read on for all the early specs.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y Is About to Debut, Watch It Live With Us!
There seems to be no shortage of controversy and scandal surrounding Tesla these days. But honestly, at this point that’s just par for the course. So, rather than pumping the brakes, it’s full speed ahead with yet another debut. Say hello to the 2020 Tesla Model Y, a more-affordable compact crossover that looks to bring all-electric practicality to the masses.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y Might Help to Introduce New Battery Technology
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.
What Kind of Performance Can We Expect From the 2020 Tesla Model Y?
If the 2020 Tesla Model Y Is a Success, How Will Tesla Handle Production?
When Tesla debuted the Model 3 compact sedan back in 2016, it managed to accumulate some 400,000 pre-orders in just a matter of weeks. And while most automakers would salivate at the mere thought of generating that kind of demand, Tesla struggled to ramp up production to fill all those orders. Now, with the imminent arrival of the 2020 Tesla Model Y, the brand’s new high-volume compact crossover, it looks as though Tesla might have a much easier time keeping its promises.
The Volkswagen I.D. EV Will Launch This Year as the Next-Gen Golf Gets Shelved Until 2020
The Volkswagen Golf is a true automotive phenomenon so when there’s a new one on the way; you can bet everyone is eagerly waiting for it. We’ve already seen mules out on the open road, but the now-2021 Volkswagen Golf 8 won’t be here until next year as Volkswagen prepares to unveil the first model from itsI.D. family of EVs that is slated to become a hit.
The German giant from Wolfsburg has been dropping hints on the 2021 Golf for a while now, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see the refreshed version of the best-selling car in Europe. Why? Well, Volkswagen needs extra time to fix some last-minute things on the Golf, and this would push the release date well past what was originally planned, namely to have the car at the Frankfurt Auto Show. A launch event on the eve of the holiday season isn’t what Volkswagen wants for the Golf, apparently.
What Else Will Elon Musk Surprise Us With at the Model Y Debut
The top story this week is the highly anticipated arrival of the Tesla Model Y crossover. That happens at the automaker’s L.A. Design Studio on Thursday, March 14. Expect news feeds from all over the Internet to be about the upcoming Model Y. But if you know Tesla, specifically CEO Elon Musk, the Model Y’s debut won’t be the only thing we’ll be talking about in the coming days. Musk has made a habit of using dedicated Tesla events as platforms for unexpected surprises. We don’t expect anything to be different when the Model Y finally takes center stage in its own debut. The question, though, is what kind of surprise does Musk have up its sleeve? Well, we have a few ideas in mind, one of which involves Tesla’s plans for its future commercial vehicles.
