Musk has confirmed that the brand’s upcoming compact crossover will be called the Model Y and will be based on the upcoming Model 3 platform. “Model Y (compact SUV) off Model 3 chassis,” tweeted Musk. The Model 3 will be the brand’s first high-volume offering and is expected to launch in 2017, so expect the Model Y sometime after that.
Tesla plans driverless buses that can be summoned by the press of a button and can drop you off right at your front door. Along with an all-electric heavy-duty semi-truck, Tesla’s new minibus is said to be ready to debut next year.
Telsa is working on a pickup truck which will eventually spawn a cargo van to compete with the Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter.
Some good guessing by @Jalopnik. The Tesla Minibus will be built on a Model X chassis. People density potential is surprisingly high.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 29, 2016
