After the S, the X, the 3, here is the Y for a Tesla S3XY range. Medium size SUV (in the USA), the 2020 Model Y is positioned as a Model 3 with more minivan spirit.

Aesthetically, it is a Model 3 whose central part would have been blown to inflate and give more interior space. To accentuate the interior volume effect, it is even available with a huge panoramic roof. The back is reworked as Tesla Model X.
But here, no useless stuff like the gullwing wings back of the Model X. Note anyway flush handles (but not electric as on the Model S). The car is obviously connected. You can unlock it from your phone, locate it, preheat it, set a speed limiter, and more. Inside, it’s sobla , sober, dominated by the huge 15-inch tablet (landscape position) that sits in the center.
