There is a more affordable variant of the Tesla Model Y available. Now starts at $39,990 ($2k price cut) for a RWD 244 mile version. Those in CA will get $1500 additional off at time of purchase bringing it to $38,490 from Clean Fuel Reward (no income limits).. Some may also be eligible for the $2000 CVRP rebate but there are income limits. For those out of CA your state may also have additional incentives, I believe NJ had $5000 off (expired for now but may return) and you aren't charged tax on an ev making it an even better deal. The 7 seat config has been released as a $3000 option.

It depends on your opinion of Tesla. This is an opportunity to pre-order early if you're in the market for a new car and really desire a highly capable electric vehicle, but don't need the range or AWD.

No, its not a deal but an announcement for a more affordable version of a popular car.

That is not a question. Just a crappy half truth.

Better shots of the 7 seat interior - https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-m...-pictures/
Looks pretty cramped to me. 244mi Range (EPA est.), and then what?

Would you trust this over tesla if you are shopping for driverless technology?
It's bolt on, can work with more cars and is open source. It's also a fraction of the price.

So yes.

Revenue – Expenses = Profit.
Again, gross profit and net profit mean different things in accounting.

Quote from coltrane69
:
All major car companies re-invest, all major car companies have R&D costs, all major car companies have employees, capital outlay, expansion costs, sales expenses, warranty costs etc.

All major car companies are absolutely not reinvesting to increase total vehicle production from 500,000 cars a year to 20 million cars a year in the next decade.

Tesla is.

The vast majority aren't designing (or building factories for) their own battery production either.

Tesla is.


So your fundamental premise fails right out of the gate.


Beyond that-But some are much better than others at various items you list.

VWs cost structure per car is terrible compared to Tesla.

That's why they lose almost $5000 for each ID.3 they sell, while Tesla has a 5-figure per car gross profit.

VWs own CEO just a few days ago published an open letter citing what bad shape VW and other legacy makers are on stuff like this...and that they need to fix it REAL SOON NOW if they want to stay in business.


Quote from coltrane69
:
you can't cherry pick what you think is "profit per vehicle"
I'm not.

Gross profit per vehicle is over $12,000 for Tesla.

It's negative for EVs with most other companies (and they tell you so).


PER VEHICLE profit and OVERALL COMPANY PROFIT are different things


Look up Amazons financials sometime.

Look how long they didn't turn any significant profit.

It wasn't because they were selling everything at a loss.

It was because they were hyper-scaling the company.

That's a thing Tesla is doing today. Legacy auto is not

I was interested in the Model Y, but that 3rd row looks tiny. What's the leg room look like?
Don't do it. I have seen a prototype with a 3rd row and it's made for 2 kids under 90pds and not for adults.

Not Tesla.

So yes.

It's also a fraction of the safety or capabilities- so no.

Test drove a model Y, absolutely hated my speed being on the corner of the central touchscreen and no carplay/android auto. Otherwise I'd have bought it.

Just because something can "seat" so many people doesn't mean it's designed to do so, and that applies to all cars. Even a much larger Honda Pilot claims to seat 7, but getting in the back is a whore and the people unfortunate enough to be put back there are going to hate you for it.

Elon says no more cars under 300mile range?!? Charge 2-3k more and make it a long range. My 2018 dual motor model 3 has lost 14% range so a Y standard edition losing 10% or more range within 2 to 3 years would really piss me off.
This is the reason i held off my Model Y order last September, ordered on a whim. Good thing they had me wait a month for the delivery and got some sense in me. Not willing to purchase an EV that will lose charge overtime, also would prefer a 500mile range (as announced in the Battery day which is a possibility). I do like the clean/economical/instant torque of an EV. So after not going through the Model Y reservation, went with a Chevy Bolt 3 year lease, after Costco deal and government incentives is about $80/month cost to me. That way I'm not stucked with an EV that would be outdated in a few years. Been driving leases on 2014 Leaf, 2017 Leaf and now 2020 Bolt. I'll purchase a Tesla when it's at 500mile range, FSD fully realized and comes standard.

Hyper scaling.. hmmm

Legacy auto is just trying to run a business where they sell a car for a profit, but it's ok for Tesla to lose money for every car they sell because they're hyperscaling to make 20,000,000 vehicles. Ok, makes sense.

Elon wanted me to personally thank you and all his other supporters, for being a part of the biggest go fund me campaign the world has ever seen. He appreciates your generosity and monetary donations to his cause. He told me in honor of your continued unwavering support, he's going to name a star after you. Congratulations Knightshade, You are now a star.

I can't speak for the Model Y, but we test drove the Model X and the 6-seat configuration appeared to be the best set up. 7-seater was just too cramp in the back for anything other than kids. I suspect the Model Y would be even more cramp as a 7-seater compared to the Model X.

I would definitely recommend any potential buyer to visit your nearest Tesla showroom and test drive before purchasing online.
