Elon Musk unveils the Tesla Model Y

Cars
Great outfit. [BLANK_AUDIO] Hey. [BLANK_AUDIO] I like the shoes. Yes. [BLANK_AUDIO] Yeah. [LAUGH] Well, everyone welcome to the Tesla design studio where we've held many [INAUDIBLE] buildings before. Hopefully you guys will have a really great time tonight. I think I'm noticing so many cameras in my entire life. [APPLAUSE] There's camera's everywhere. So we made the original road road step, the model S, the model X the model 3, and then we also then made the new generation road star, she'll bring in maybe it's over there. [BLANK_AUDIO] [APPLAUSE] Sweet. [INAUDIBLE] please. [LAUGH] Sure. Yeah my man. [APPLAUSE] And then the semi. [APPLAUSE] [BLANK_AUDIO] Actually, the Tesla Semi drove nonstop here all the way from the Bay Area. [BLANK_AUDIO] So that Tesla Semi A 500 mile range electric semi. I learned actually only after naming the thing that semi has two meanings. [LAUGH] So the solar roof and power wall. So this is definitely gonna be the year of the solar roof and power wall. Because of extreme challenges with the model three production we have to basically allocate all resources to model three production because otherwise we're gonna die. And so basically it was pretty tight. I was like, it was a hard one. I would say like 2018 was probably felt like aging five years in one. Honestly, it was really intense. [LAUGH] [APPLAUSE] So thank you for supporting Tesla through this difficult period. Thank you. [APPLAUSE] Yeah. [APPLAUSE] [INAUDIBLE] Now that Model 3 production is going pretty well, we can finally allocate [UNKNOWN] attention to the solar roof as well as the solar retrofit I'm pretty excited about both of the solar tile roof and the solar [UNKNOWN] and power wall. Part of the reason we couldn't also make power walls was we couldn't make enough cells. We had to allocate cells to the car, or to the power wall. It was like well we've gotta make the cars. So then power wall got cell starved, basically. But, 2019, we are now gonna ramp it up. So Powerpack is kinda like our industrial-strength battery storage system. And we did the biggest battery storage system in the world in Australia. [APPLAUSE] Yeah, that was really super cool. And then we're doing one that's roughly A gigawatt hour scale in California. Just so in southern California right nearby, we're building a gigawatt-hour scale power pack. And we expect this to ultimately be really critical for transitioning the world to sustainable energy. Obviously, you have to have sustainable energy production and sustainable energy consumption. So it's the stable energy production need. The solar panels, plus the battery, cuz the sun doesn't shine at night, and then those electric cars. You know electric vehicles are general, yeah. So, but I mean the real exciting thing is with solo plus battery plus electric vehicles we have a fully sustainable future. This is a future you can Feel really excited and optimistic about it. I think that really matters. [Applause.] In two thousand ten we had zero superchargers, so there was no, you couldn't really drive long distances with an electric car, in twenty ten. So it was like, we better have some high power charges, otherwise it's gonna be extremely inconvenient to drive long distances. So built into the model S was a high voltage DC bypass directly to the pack so you can just sort of mainline power rating right into the park and then we still get, then Nobody was building high powered chargers. They're like, okay, we better build these high powered chargers, cuz nobody is building them, and so we went from zero superchargers to building a global network of superchargers, yeah. [APPLAUSE] Yeah, so- [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] It's pretty nurdy each one of those is a super charging site. So super charging team Tesla did an incredible job building a global network of super chargers that allow you to travel to massive section of the world, basically anywhere in North America. Almost anywhere in Europe, most places in China, north Gobi Desert yet, but most places. We'll cover the Gobi Desert, we'll get there. And I was just wondering like if, where will Tesla be in ten years. [SOUND] [LAUGH] [LAUGH] Mars. [LAUGH] Exactly. We wil be driving a Tesla on Mars. [APPLAUSE] I think we actually could. [APPLAUSE] Okay, Tesla will be on Mars in ten years. I think it will, it will. [LAUGH] So after that extended history lesson, [LAUGH] What about the actual reason you came? Okay, there's a missing car. [LAUGH] It's starts with a Y, ends with a Y, and that's Y in the middle. Bring out the model Y. All right, yeah. [APPLAUSE] It's a little bit. [AUDIENCE SCREAMS AND APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] [LAUGH] [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, [BLANK_AUDIO] The Model Y Yeah [APPLAUSE] Yeah. So, like the three, it will be extremely safe. So that the, you may know the Model 3 has the lowest probability of injury of any car ever tested by the U.S. government. They Model Y, we expect, will have a similar result. Five stars in every category. With the battery pack alone low in the floor, it's gonna have a very low center of gravity. It has the functionality of an SUV, but it will ride like a sports car. So this thing will be really tight in corners. And we expect it will be the safest mid-sized SUV in the world by far. And at Tesla, we actually always design with safety as the number-one goal. It's like, like people think, okay, performance. Sure, but safety first. This is actually by far the most important thing. But it's also gonna be, have incredible performance. So expect it to have three-and-a-half seconds, zero to 60. Yeah, good. And very left center of gravity, so great handling. It's testing out at a 0.23 drag coefficient, which is extremely good for an SUV. And in terms of range, fair amount. [APPLAUSE] So we expect to have an actual true usable range of 300 miles, so yeah. Hell yeah. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] From an interior standpoint it has a panoramic glass roof. And by the way, after I'm done here, you guys will be able to come up and check out the car. [APPLAUSE] So it's gonna have a panoramic glass roof. It really feels just like the Model 3. If you're in the car, it just feels you can see the sky. [BLANK_AUDIO] Seats seven, 66 cubic feet, obviously autopilot and all that, and as I've said publicly, we expect it to be feature complete with self driving sometime later this year. And then as we prove out the safety with billions of miles and kilometers, we will, from our standpoint, feel it's like safe enough to not pay attention and then get the regulatory approval sometime thereafter. But the cool thing is, feature complete. Like, it'll be able to do basically anything. By the end of this year, just with software upgrades, which is pretty cool, so. [APPLAUSE] So, let's see, Model Y lineup. Okay, there you go. So, yeah. The basically long-range one we expect to be about $47,000. And then sometime in 2021, we'll have the sort of standard version, which will have a $39,000 price point. So, yeah. [APPLAUSE] No, the seven seats are optional. Yeah. [INAUDIBLE] You mean the lift cage? [INAUDIBLE] Yeah, okay. I mean you never know we might do better than this, but we should be able to meet those schedules. So I think it's going to be really compelling, I'm like more confident that it will be of any mid size SUV it will be the one you want. And yeah, I think it will probably sell, I think it will probably do more model wise than XM3 combined, most likely. [cheering] [APPLAUSE] [LAUGH] So there you have the sexy presentation. [APPLAUSE] So all right, so thank you all all for coming. Both those of you who are here and those of you who are watching, thank you very much for your support over the years. It's been Hell of a ride, and- We love you. [LAUGH] I love you, too, I love you, too. We are bringing sexy back quite literally. All right. Thank you. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC] [MUSIC]
