With SUVs and crossovers gaining in popularity over sedans, the Model Y announcement is seen as an important one for Tesla to gain further market share and offer an “affordable” electric compact SUV for the masses, based on its Model 3 platform. Production of the Model Y is set to begin in 2020.
Tesla recently reversed its decision to close all of its retail stores, which subsequently also reversed a price drop on its higher Model S, Model X plus Autopilot add-ons. The existing discounted prices will remain until Monday, March 18, 2019.
