Tesla Model Y prototype seen for the first time



A few months after launching the Tesla Model Y, a prototype of the new electric crossover has now been spotted in the wild for the first time.


In March, Tesla showed the Model Y, a new electric crossover based on the Model 3 platform, to the public for the first time.

It gave test rides to attendees at the event in Los Angeles.

The vehicle was also briefly displayed at Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto and its factories in order for more employees to get the chance to see the new car in person.

Now a Model Y working prototype was also spotted on the road for the first time.

Chargepoint shared an image of the Model Y earlier this week:
We have previously seen this Model S modified as a crane vehicle earlier this year.

Tesla was using it to film the Tesla Corsa event at the Buttonwillow test track:

It likely means that Tesla was filming some promotional material with the Model Y prototype.

When Tesla unveiled Model Y earlier this year, the automaker said that the electric crossover will start at $39,000 and have a range of up 300 miles.

The company has since modified its pricing structure and the lowest version currently available to order on its website starts at $48,000.
