    First teaser of Tesla Model Y

    Tesla Model Y Teaser Released, Deliveries Anticipated By 2019
    by Jay Cole

    From Tuesday’s Tesla shareholder meeting we got our first look at the company’s Model Y compact SUV…more or less.

    The cloudy teaser shot foreshadows the company’s next offering, after the Model 3 heads into production next month.
    More here.
    Model Y is the smaller CUV below the Model X.

    I'm sure it's on the way, but I view this teaser as Tesla's "look over here!!" for when Model 3's launch doesn't go smoothly.

    That's the first thing that came to mind when I saw this on another site a couple of days ago. First the teaser of an electric semi, and now the Model Y. Hmmm? Could be nothing, but color me skeptical. Where is news of the first 3's about to come off the line? Late July they said which is fast approaching.

    IMO Tesla should have focused on high end cars. The Model S is a beautiful car and really could make a lot of profit if they offered bespoke versions for the well heeled buyer. I just don't see Tesla turning much of a profit on the Model 3, but I could very well be wrong.

    It's a smaller X, color me shocked. Looks vaguely like an Infiniti.

    If you know anything about Elon Musk, you know aiming for the moon isn't enough for him (literally and figuratively). Tesla wouldn't exist for something as plebeian as quick profitability selling small numbers of high-end cars. They have a much bigger vision. I honestly don't know if they'll succeed as a company or not, but I applaud them for trying. IMO, it's good that there are still at least some American companies that are willing to take risks for a bigger long-term payoff rather than settling for the highest profit next quarter.

    In light of how things are really going I suspect that the date will get pushed back.
