I like the looks of it in the videos on the Tesla page, especially in the blue.

1. The MY should have been the M3 at the $35K price point THREE YEARS AGO!!!!!!
2. At the actual delivery date, i.e. probably 2021, the marketplace will be super competitive for the MY.
3. The bigger issue for Tesla in 2021 will most likely be its impending Chapter 7, if it even makes it to 2021.

Again, what viable manufacturing company announces a product with a 2+ year delivery date, notwithstanding their extremely
poor past record?

Many auto makers struggle financially over an extended period of time. It’s not uncommon for a traditional builder to reveal their future products a couple years from availability. Last time I checked, Tesla wasn’t exactly welcome at the Auto Show to display their future goods.

Underwhelming.

In many ways, this is what the Model X should have been.

I wonder if people will be less inclined to play the reservation game this time around. Once they got cranking on the model 3 it really wasn't that long until the serious buyers got their cars (of course the short-range people are still waiting). Bumping the reservation fee up to $2,500 will separate the wheat from the chaff though.

With the Y being 75% the same as the 3 that makes production and supplier problems so much easier than the previous cars. As well they will be making the 3 (and the Y) in China next year for added profit. 75% is a big deal.

I'm excited about it. May not buy one, but I find it meets my needs well. The Chrysler Portal minivan is another car that I'm excited about. Competition should be good. https://cleantechnica.com/2018/09/18/ch ... roduction/

Tesla's never really had supplier problems, with exception when it can't pay it suppliers.

Most OEMs don't provide specific model details, then scam potential buyers by asking for reservation deposits to generate
needed cash flow, and then bait-and-switch reservations to more costly model variations, i.e. Tesla, an example of a real
low-life company!
