As we all know, the lines between vehicle classes are completely blurred these days.
While the Tesla Model 3 may be the best thing that ever happened to Tesla, the new American automaker is still struggling, as expected. Perhaps a small crossover or even a pickup truck should have come first? We ask this since the SUV and truck segment in the U.S. is immense, to say the least.
More Tesla Model Y News:
Tesla talked about a Model Y crossover for some time before it finally revealed the concept vehicle. Early on, CEO Elon Musk shared that it would be on an all-new platform. However, over time, the story changed. When the Model Y debuted it came as essentially a raised and enlarged Model 3.
Let’s not discount this plan right away, however, since almost every legacy automaker currently builds crossovers on one or more of its car platforms. However, according to Musk, the Model Y is about 75 percent Model 3. Even the cars’ look and body style are so much the same that some people have trouble differentiating between the two.
