Elon Musk said he wants to market the Model Y as soon as possible Source:

At a meeting with the leadership of Tesla August 2, Executive Director Elon Musk said that the upcoming electric crossover Model Y will appear on the market sooner than planned. This is partly due to the fact that the new Model will be Y to use a similar platform on which to build the Model 3.

"once my management team would bring me back from all this madness, is scheduled to begin to use Y to Model the platform Model 3 for faster introduction of new models to market," — quoted Elon musk the portal the Verge.

The Source also said that the Mask still refuses to use the new model 12-volt battery as other models of Tesla, to reduce the number of transactions and speed up the production process. Most likely, the Model Y will borrow some features of other models. It is first and foremost about the doors "Falcon wings" that are used in an expensive crossover Model X. However, the use of the same platform on different models means more room to automate, accelerate and reduce production costs.

Tesla, it was necessary to release a new Model Y, if she wants to reach the goal of 1 million produced and sold cars in 2020. Previously, Musk has already noted that the Model Y is unlikely to see production before the end of 2019 – beginning of 2020. Therefore, recently the application can be considered as an indication that the company really wants to bring a new model on the market.

In the second quarter of this year, Tesla has set 22 026 electric cars Model S and Model X. the Total figure for the current year is 47 077 electric vehicles.
