Tesla Model Y revealed by Elon Musk – and the all-electric SUV isn’t cheap

ELON MUSK is trying to shake up the car market again with the reveal of the company’s new electric SUV, the Tesla Model Y.

The Tesla Model Y was unveiled at a launch event in California and pricing for the eco-friendly vehicle will start at $39,000 – but most models won’t be released until 2021.

The mid-sized sport utility vehicle will offer a 230-mile battery range and 66-feet of cargo space, though high-end versions of the cutting-edge motor could cost as much as $60,000.

These more expensive versions of the Model Y might ship as soon as 2020, according to the company, but Tesla’s auto-pilot software will incur an additional charge.

Tesla’s auto-pilot software and colours other than the standard black version of the vehicle are also set to incur an additional charge.

According to Musk, the Model Y: “Will be able to do basically anything by the end of this year, just with software upgrades.”

The electric SUV doesn’t come cheap

Previous Tesla cars such as the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model X have suffered production delays – with the Tesla Model 3 taking three years from launch to shipping.

But at the Model Y’s reveal, Musk promised that the new Tesla car will be manufactured faster to meet consumer demand.

He added that the Tesla Model Y would be produced at the company’s Gigafactory in Nevada.
