Tesla has released the highly anticipated model Y and unfortunately my fears have been realized. The vehicle looks like a bloated model 3 and has virtualy all parts in common with the model. While I understand the decision from bussines perspective it is quite underwhelming from design point of view. They could have easily used this opportunity to slightly updated the interior design instead of using the same model 3 interior that is rather unatractive.
So here is a proposal for the model Y. It has slightly higher ground clearance and longer rear overhang which gives it a more SUV like proportions. I do not dislike the current design, while not that much different than the 3 they could just call it model 3 Plus, add it to their lineup and continue developing the Y further. The competition will be ramping up after this year and Tesla will have to keep up with the styling offerings from the upcoming OEM entries in the field.
