Over the last couple of weeks we’ve seen some TeslaCam footage and spy shots of a prototype Tesla Model Y driving on the streets of California near Tesla HQ. Now comes a new picture of a carrier truck with several Model Y’s that was spotted near Tesla’s Fremont factory in California.
These latest pictures reveal some new details not previously seen on the Model Y. First, there is a new wheel design on these Model Y’s. Previously, the Model Y prototypes that were seen on the road had what appeared to be the Model 3 aero wheels. These new wheels appear to have split spokes and are silver in colour. Another difference is that the black prototype seen previously had no chrome trim around the windows, a welcomed change for many from the Model 3 (no more chrome delete). But the chrome trim seems to have reappeared on these Model Y’s.
Since these vehicles were spotted near Tesla’s factory in Fremont California, this could indicate these are closer to production versions of the Model Y than previously seen. The Model Y is slated for a fall 2020 release. Pre-orders can be made now on the Tesla website, with the base model starting at $66,290CDN, and the Performance version priced at $84,290CDN.
