    First Teaser image and info from today's shareholder call.


    • Model Y will NOT share platform with model 3 but will be built on entirely new platform.
    • Gigafactory 1 will likely produce the battery packs for the car, but a new factory will be built for the vehicle production lines.
    •Tesla will get rid of the 12-volt battery architecture. It means no more lead-acid battery and a different way to power in-car electronics. Musk says that they will reduce the overall wiring significantly and simplify the production process.
    •While Model 3 production lines will be comparable to the best lines in the industry, the Model Y production line will be “something else”.
    • Going into production late 2019/early 2020.

      Will this be the sports coupe they were saying before?

      I believe this will be a mini SUV/Crossover of some sort.

          They wanted Model E but Ford owned the rights to that and was not interested in selling it.

            Are they ashamed of the looks?

              Fulfilling the backlog of Model 3 orders will be enough to keep the company busy. Not to mention the constant Q&A and improvements required to keep the car at the top of satisfactory surveys. They should be careful about spreading themselves too thinly.

              Speaking of production. When will the Model S be replaced or its production cease? I imagine the Model Y will make the Model S look like last decade's tech, right?
