Tesla has issued up an official teaser of its next new model. The electric carmaker released the above image of the Model Y crossover, which will debut on March 14th at Tesla’s design studio in California.
In typical teaser fashion, the image does not tell us a lot about the Model Y. We can see from the headlight graphic that the front end appears to have a significant influence from the Model 3 sedan, which comes as little surprise given the two are slated to share significant amounts of hardware.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has stated the Model 3 and Model Y will share approximately 75 percent of their parts, this after Musk–at one point–stated they would be on different platforms entirely. The shared bones are undoubtedly an effort to reduce development costs, while shared powertrains will reduce manufacturing complexity.
Musk has also stated the Model Y will be about 10 percent larger than the Model 3 and, equally, cost about 10 percent more than the sedan, which (finally) starts at $35,000.
Expect to hear more about the upcoming Tesla Model Y on the 14th.
