With great hype presented by the US electric car maker Tesla in Los Angeles, the new Model Y. The SUV, based on the current bearer of hope Model 3 will be the next decisive step in the conquest of the mass market and the companies from Tech billionaire Elon Musk is finally on the breaking out of the luxury niche. But it is, as is so often the case with Tesla: that sounds promising, is associated with high risks and question marks. Is: Tesla is already with its existing product range immensely in the Stress and is under massive pressure.
The solemn presentation of the Model Y in Los Angeles, however, is a home game for Elon Musk: The Tesla boss is greeted with thunderous applause, as he entert the Right Said Fred Song "I'm too sexy" on stage. Is adopted, he followed like a rock star with "Elon, Elon, Elon!"-Chants. No wonder: The Event in Tesla's Design Studios are charged in addition to some journalists, almost only Fans of the entrepreneur.

Musk is clearly impressed by the great euphoria of his Person, away from even hüftsteifen dance steps and appears to be rather like a Guru in the circle of his Disciples as like a stressed Top managers. Before the 47-Year-old to the presentation of the Model Y comes, he will deliver the followers is a short version of the unique success story of Tesla's: "eleven years Ago we have manufactured in the truest sense of the word, a single car and in a year it will be a Million."
Then, the new SUV is driving on the stage, to be produced by 2020, and according to Musk, everything will surpass what it has ever been in demand for Tesla cars: "We are likely to build more Model Y as the Model S, X and 3 together". Already in January, Tesla CEO had said that the demand for the new car could be twice as high as the Model 3. Seen in this way, the Model Y would be even Tesla's so far the most important vehicle.
there are with the Model X is actually a Tesla SUV. But this is an expensive luxury vehicle with gull-wing doors, a status symbol for the rich clientele, in the Musk of his outlandish ideas had more or less free-running and not particularly on the cost stayed. The Model is Y now almost everyone version to follow. The new car is coming, according to Musk in autumn 2020 on the road.

It is quite a clever Plan, a SUV variant based on the Model 3. Because already with this car, Tesla had triggered such a large Hype that the "iPhone on wheels" was spoken, because some of the Analyst had confidence in the car have a similar revolutionary innovation like Apple's first Smartphone Generation. While vehicles like the Model 3 are actually not even in the Trend. Instead of mid-size sedans town site boom car - and not just in the USA, where SUVs and Pick-ups make up the majority of new car purchases. The Model Y would be just right.
in Addition, it should be largely made up of the same Parts as the Model 3 is manufactured, which facilitates the production and the cost, unlike the extravagant Model X - under control. However, gone are the days in which the auto industry, Tesla left as a pioneer in the market, the box for E-cars. The long-established manufacturer bubbles in the face of Tesla's are Made for hunting, also well-established heavyweights BMW, Audi, Daimler wants to bring electric SUVs on the market, but rather in the luxury Segment.
sound So promising Musks large projects, often for fear that Tesla could take over. The Model 3 brought the company to the Limit, Musk spoke repeatedly of a "production hell" and acknowledged that the company was in the meantime, shortly before the Bankruptcy. The production has started to finally travel, but the pressure is barely low. To save money, within a few months, two large notice round, last Musk decided to close many Tesla stores, and to shift sales entirely to the Internet. A little later it was said that there would be more stores than initially planned.The Model is Y of Tesla in a handout photo: Tesla Motors/Reuters
in Addition, it is not so, as the enterprising entrepreneur would already have enough Stress. So Musk, who runs Tesla, also the space company SpaceX and the Tunneling company Boring Company supplies a continuous dispute with the U.S. securities and exchange Commission and lawsuits, a number of Investors on the neck. The SEC calls due to Musks intense activity on Twitter, the investors allegedly sometimes misleading guide to further judicial consequences. In the previous year, there had been a comparison that Musk, among other things, the chief post in the Tesla-Board of Directors at a cost, which is the parent of the Board of Directors.
