Elon Musk has announced that the newest member of the Tesla family, the Model Y, will be revealed on March 14 at the company’s LA design studio. This is reportedly an all-electric crossover, serving as a "higher and bigger version of the Model 3" with a hatchback. "Model Y, being an SUV, is about 10% bigger than Model 3, so will cost about 10% more & have slightly less range for same battery."

Musk said that it will look a lot like Model 3 and it will not have Falcon Wing doors -- something that he previously wanted with Model Y. Tesla has been debating making on a new platform or using the Model 3 platform over the past few years and it’s unclear where they have landed on the issue. Detailed specs and pricing information will be announced at the event next week and working Model Y prototypes will be available for test rides.
