Tesla has published a final teaser of the upcoming Model Y before the vehicle premieres at 8pm PDT / 11pm EST.
The electric automaker has released a grand total of three Model Y teaser images over the past couple of years, two of which showed the SUV from the front and one which offered a front three-quarter view. This particular teaser video, published on Twitter, offers us our first rear three-quarter view of the SUV.
Unfortunately, the car is covered in a black sheet but that doesn’t mean we can’t see a number of important styling details. First and foremost, it’s clear that the Model Y is almost identical in shape to the Model X with a voluptuous rear-end and a rear window that stretches right to the vehicle’s rear fascia. Like the Model X, there also appears to be a small spoiler.
A separate teaser recently released provided a glimpse of the Model Y’s front fascia. It appears quite similar to the Model 3 with larger headlights than the Model S and Model X.
The Tesla Model Y will be unveiled at 8pm PDT (11pm EST) tonight at Tesla’s Los Angeles Design Studio.
Underpinning the ‘baby’ SUV will be the same platform as the Tesla Model 3 and according to some, the Model Y will share roughly 75 per cent of its parts with its sedan sibling. As is typical of Tesla models, the Model Y will be sold in a number of guises with different electric motor configurations and various sizes of battery packs. Elon Musk says its range will be roughly 10 per cent less than equivalent Model 3 variants.
