Tesla to use entirely different vehicle architecture to build the Model Y: Musk
Making a surprise announcement about Tesla Motors’ next car, CEO Elon Musk declared that the electronic-car maker will no longer use completely different vehicle architecture to build the Model Y.
The billionaire entrepreneur and innovator made the surprise announcement during the company’s second-quarter earnings call on Wednesday.
According to the announcement, Musk said that Tesla would instead borrow vehicle architecture from the Model 3’s platform.
Speaking on the topic, Musk said, “Upon the council of my executive team to reel me back from the cliffs of insanity, the Model Y will, in fact, be using substantial carry over from Model 3 in order to bring it to market faster.”
The decision to use substantial carry over from Model 3 is expected to bring the next car to the market faster because it would make production a lot easier.
The Tesla Model Y will be a compact sports utility vehicle (SUV), which is slated to hit the market by 2020.
