The Tesla fan base is growing every day mostly due to the huge popularity of their yet unreleased Model 3 affordable sedan. And since we already know this one could spawn a crossover version, here’s a digital artists’ interpretation.
RM Car Design’s Remco Meulendijk has decided to test the waters and bring forth a possible interpretation of the upcoming crossover – dubbed Model Y. This is to go along with the idea that Tesla is aiming to create a “S3XY” arrangement out of its model lineup. The Model 3 based crossover has an evolutionary design – but comes with its own take on the sporty front end thanks to bigger air intakes and even more chrome trim. The side profile is about the same and the digital artist enhanced the crossover stance by using plastic body cladding, a stylish roofline, and a nicely integrated tailgate.
With the possible crossover based on the Model 3, the powertrain should naturally be the same. This means enough performance and a good range. There are still lots of details shrouded in mystery but we know the Model 3 can do 0-60 miles per hour in less than six seconds and will be able to go with a full battery for up to 215 miles. The Model Y should be pretty close to these figures – though its increased weight might subtly affect them negatively – just like is the case with the Model S and Model X duo.
