The Model Y show is over, but Elon Musk tries to keep a sense of tension by pointing out another novelty. Now he has posted a secret picture of a new "cyberpunk truck". One can guess what it is. The tip of the fan varies from truck bed to loading area.
Here is the net's attempt to derive the entire truck shape from the teaser image.
Almost incidentally, Elon Musk previously said that electric trucks on Twitter would be released at the end of the year.
No, not at the end of the year.

In early 2018, Tesla's boss suggested that pickup trucks would be "futuristic," "cyberpunk-like" and have six seats.
Tesla's exciting project – but "normal" electric cars are more important in their share. The decision to create a buy signal on the chart was a remarkable success for the Y model. But most analysts respond critically. "Model Y can be modeled on Model 3." Fear of Morgan Stanley. It is not 10% more expensive than Model 3. Many people can postpone the purchase of Model 3 and wait for the new Tesla Model Y. Cowen is "disappointed" because the night does not bring a real surprise. The event did not create fresh happiness for the Tesla brand and "one more thing" was missing.
Bernstein "worries" when Musk is actually mass-produced by the end of 2020. Goldman Sachs sees the total order intake for Model Y as 200 to 400,000. That would be less than the million Musk promised. But there are also bulls. Macquarie believes "the most important car in Tesla history" and expects "strong demand".
We reported the following: A nice car like Model 3. But the problem begins. For cost reasons, Elon Musk gave up Model Y on the big trash. With performance and fun design, you can find hundreds of thousands of buyers. But Tesla set the bar very high. According to Elon Musk, the model Y is more expensive, but the mini SUV expects sales figures that are significantly higher than the model 3-7 digit values. Google Trends data shows that happiness is much lower than the 2016 Model 3 event. Many press articles will be released in the next few days, but attention is still ahead. Even if the trend data is compared before the event is shown, the interest in Model 3 will double the interest of the model in 2016 -Y- Revelation.
The reaction of the network and the reporters on the scene are positive – but not happy. The image reporter (Tweeter) calls the Model Y the Tesla "the most car-free" car ever. Model Y will be successful – but Elon Musk needs a big success in order to leave behind recent sales weaknesses. Investors are still waiting to see if the expectation for Model Y sales will finally be enough to break the $ 320 to $ 330 mark.
My first impression #ModelYSUV version @Tesla # Model3 , Probably the coldest of the four models. But there is something more useful. And still impressive with the Tesla drive. In addition, the response of the fan in the hallway was somewhat suppressed. @autobild pic.twitter.com/k7U8QqWOvQ

We reported tonight: CET At 4 o'clock, Elon Musk unveiled a new model Y. Here is the first picture. Franz von Holzhausen's design is as pleasing and streamlined as usual (cw: 0.23). It was announced by Elon Musk, but due to its proximity to Model 3, there was no apparent surprise. But there are two innovative innovations that customers have not anticipated. Model Y is available in 7 seats. In addition, a range of up to 300 miles (480 kilometers) is available at the top of the quotation. The basic version (370 km) will be released in the spring of 2021 and will cost $ 39,000. However, the long-range version (480 km range) will be sold for $ 47,000 in the fall of 2020, according to Musk. The first response to the audience's model Y is mostly positive. However, one or the other criticism criticizes the great similarity with Model 3.
The biggest problem is how many Tesla models Y can sell. Previously, CEOs predicted that Model 3 would reach 700,000 to 800,000 a year, or maybe 500,000 in the event of a recession. Elon Musk is currently supporting such statements by the SEC investigation. For the Y model, according to the previous statement, demand is about twice that of about one million cars a year.
You do not have to be a prophet to guess. Most commands are performed by the Y model. However, while the Model 3 2016 is virtually unmatched, the Tesla Model Y should now compete. Crucial to operational success is that Tesla will be an efficient vehicle manufacturer.
