    With the Model 3 about a year away from delivery, I was wondering when we'll start getting some information about the Model Y. Do you think it will be similar in timing of the X to the S? Could the first announcement come with the Model 3 part 3. I personally think not, Tesla not wanting to take away from the M3. I'm guessing in the Spring of 2018. After about 6 months of deliveries on the Model 3. Maybe delivery of the Model Y in 2019?

    It was reported some time ago they were working on Y at the same time as Model 3 however it's been slated for introduction a bit later. My guess is shortly after Model 3 goes into production. Elon said it best during the last financials call: why would they try and sell something else they can't even produce yet. That's why they've been very quiet about Model 3 since the first reveal. They didn't expect to get this many reservations so they had to move production ramp up by 2 years so why make it worse by introducing a variant until the first one it out.

    At least that's what I'd be doing if I was involved. I know there's pent up demand in the US for a CUV variant but Tesla has limited resources and they have to stay focussed on Model 3.

    I'm thinking they will do a model Y reveal sometime between the part 3 of the model 3 and delivery of the model 3.

    Soooooo.... maybe in July/August next year.

    Just an absolute guess ;)

    He did mention that he would be revealing the pickup and semi next year so that would move the model Y reveal up a bit.

    So much to do in the next 9-12 months! I would also load up on TSLA. An excellent growth period coming and it's cheap.

    So... did you? Are you just talking, or did you buy some TSLA?

    I finally bought some a few months ago after the Model 3 reveal. Even if they miss their production ramp-up goals, I think they'll eventually get there. At that point, they are a major auto manufacturer with a very desirable product lineup, and I think the stock makes a large jump.

    @garsh , agree... I wish I could... so... since I don't have any available funds now... by talking so much about T≡SLA in recent months, I was able to induce my rather well off (now retired) German best friend to invest some of his 'play money' into TSLA... that's all I could do to get him to support the brand...! He could buy a Model S P100D & pay it cash if he so wanted... but he's a die hard Daimler fan so for him is the 'EQ'... by Mercedes!! :p

    Yeah, I didn't go crazy. If Tesla goes under, my retirement plans don't change. :cool:

    I just feel that they will succeed, and the stock price will eventually reflect that, long term. It's not often that I feel that I have researched a public company to have an opinion on how they will do in the future. Since I feel I do, I decided to put a little cash there. Otherwise, I just invest in index funds.

    Exactly my thoughts. Put in a few thousand €. Commit myself some more.
    If it takes a jump the gain will be very nice. If it doesn't, the loss is not so big.
