One step up in the range will be the Tesla Model Y Dual Motor AWD.

While the body at first appears to be about the size of a large premium hatchback, it does in fact have a 7 seater option, plus 1.9 metres cubed of cargo space.

With that big of trivia out of the way, the Model Y is expected to be largely based on the Model 3.

"It feels like the Model 3", Musk said, noting the similar panoramic glass roof and dashboard design. It wasn't until last month that Tesla announced it would take orders for the $35,000 version, which has a shorter range. Thanks to a pair of powerful electric motors, this model will have a 280 mile (450 km) range, a 150 miles per hour (241 km/h) top speed and accelerate to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 3.5 seconds.

That plan - later scrapped - ushered in a period of turmoil at the company, from Musk's public battles with regulators, a flurry of securities lawsuits, cost cutting and layoffs.

The vehicle is created to use a lot of the same parts as the Model 3 (Musk put the number at 75 percent in an earnings call earlier this year) so ramping up production shouldn't be as hard. For anyone who questioned why the Model Y was unveiled now, this is your answer.

As Tesla CEO Elon Musk said, "We are bringing sexy back quite literally", with the midsize SUV Y completing the Tesla line of Models S, 3, and X. "There was a time when electric cars seemed very stupid and it wasn't that long ago", Musk told the audience. Musk gave no new details about where the Model Y would be produced at Thursday's event.

Tesla, per usual, loves boasting about acceleration and the Model Y certainly is no slouch.

Another shot of the Model Y can be seen below. Suppliers were originally told that production would start on the vehicle in November 2019, sources told Reuters a year ago. The Model Y will be offered in four configurations along with a Standard Range Model set to arrive later, by Spring of 2021 prior to which three different variants will be on offer from Fall of 2020. Tesla said it hopes to build 2,000 Model Ys per week by September 2020.
