Tesla gets ready to launch the most important car in its line-up
Feb 4, 2019
Tesla announced that it's gearing up for the launch of the Model Y. CEO Elon Musk said that the company plans to start production in 2020 and that he hopes the Model Y will become the company's best-selling model in the United States and challenge the Toyota Rav 4 for the title of the best-selling SUV in the country. The SUV market has become increasingly popular in the last few years, with companies like General Motors, Fiat Crysler, and Ford announcing their plans to phase out sedan production in the United States and focus on the profitable SUV segment. Tesla launched its Model X SUV in 2015 but has failed to catch on and was too difficult to make.
