Late last night, Elon Musk and the Tesla crew finally unveiled the Model Y, a new crossover SUV that shares near-identical DNA to the Model 3 in terms of range and power. 

It's 10% bigger and will cost 10% more, with prices starting at $39,000 for the Standard Range model with 230 miles of drive charge, a top speed of 120 mph, and a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds. It also packs the same super-minimal interior as the Model 3 as well as its ability to instantly improve its software and capabilities as additional features pass regulatory approval.

The upgraded models will go into production first in fall of 2020 with the standard range model entering production in early 2021. The online configurator for the Model Y is already live, so head here if you've been ready and waiting to throw down a deposit.
