Tesla video teases mystery model, Roadster accelerationby Justin King
Apparently a bit taller than the Model 3 in the rear, the veiled vehicle could be the Model Y.
Tesla has released a 2018 promo video highlighting many of the company's current and future products, including a mystery vehicle that could be the Model Y.
Appearing at 15 seconds into the video, the partially shrouded car looks to be similar to the Model 3 in overall size but with a bit more height behind the rear seats.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently promised the Model Y will represent a "manufacturing revolution." The company has decided to use the Model 3's platform architecture to avoid more trouble on the assembly line.
Musk also admitted that the most ambitious Model Y production target of late 2019 will likely be pushed to early 2020, presumably accommodating a delay in ramping up Model 3 output to full volume.
With no more room in Fremont, the automaker says the Model Y will be built at a different location.
