The 2020 Tesla Model Y is a premium all-electric crossover/SUV that shares its fundamental structure with the Model 3 sedan.

Like many small crossover vehicles, the Model Y has family-friendly functionality via reclining rear seats, a roomy cargo area and a hatchback design.
Model Y’s current $54,190 base price is high when compared to luxury compact SUV competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Lexus. Tesla says a $40,000 base-level Model Y will arrive in 2021.
