In Los Angeles, Tesla CEO Elon Musk showed off a prototype version of the Model Y, the fourth mass-produced vehicle that the electric car maker will bring to market. As expected, the vehicle will be a larger SUV take on the Model 3, much like the Model X was the larger, SUV version of the Model S. The Model Y could achieve 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.5 seconds. The 480 km, long-range version of the vehicle will go into production in Fall 2020 with an MSRP of 47,000 USD. The 370 km standard version will cost 37,000 USD and go into production in spring 2021, according to Musk. The Y will seat seven people with 1.9 m2 of storage space.
