Tesla Model Y

Best quotes I've seen so far

Quote:
It has the face of a Model 3 and the ass of a Kardashian
Quote:
It looks like a Model 3 and a Prius had a baby
I'm not on the market for a compact SUV, but I don't actually hate the way it looks. It's a slightly bigger, fatter Model 3. A little heavier, slower, and more expansive, but you get more space.

Elon said he expects to sell more of them than the S and 3 combined.

And.. made a joke that Ford killed Sex (by taking the 'e', forcing him to use 3)

more of Aztek then a SUV guess that is what the big one is like too and I think they tried to play the Aztek off as a SUV.

I’m really surprised that they didn’t do this before the 3.

Oh yay, all the ugliness of a model 3, with the same dumb interior, but now on stilts. And with a taller greenhouse, because that was really what was missing to make the 3 look truly awkward.

I believe it'll sell like gangbusters, but ... yuck.

I mean...it's fine? It's hardly an SUV. It's more like a slightly bloated hatchback. Is it attractive? Not especially, though the Model 3 has kind of grown on me from every angle except dead on rear.

It's conservatism in design choices is precisely what Tesla needs. It should be easier to build than the X. And in a world where Audi still hasn't launched the e-tron (someday soon!) and Jag is offering an i-Pace that has less range from 20 kwh more battery, the specs are pretty hard to beat.
