SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Tesla Inc unveiled its Model Y electric sports utility vehicle on Thursday evening in California, promising a much-awaited crossover that will face competition from European car makers rolling out their own electric rivals.

Chief Executive Elon Musk said the compact SUV, built on the same platform as the Model 3, would first debut in a long-range version with a range of 300 miles (482 km) priced at $47,000.

A standard version, to be available sometime in 2021, would cost $39,000, with a 230-mile range. The vehicles can be configured to include 7 seats for an additional $3,000.

After the event, Tesla's website included a page to "design and order" the more expensive, long range version of the vehicle with rear-wheel drive, available next year. Ordering the car requires a $2,500 refundable deposit.

This is a pretty good price range for an all-electric high-tech SUV. But with many other automakers electrifying their model lines, it's now a race to see who can get their product out there quicker. One thing that Tesla still seems to do better is range, but there are cheaper EVs from Kia/Hyundai that get over 200 miles.

And I still think the PHEV market should be explored more for those who have range anxiety... best of both worlds until pure EVs really come down in price.

Agreed...that new Volvo is interesting to me.   They are electrifying their entire fleet.

Volkswagen is coming fast with its electric cars too.   

I now realize why Tesla made such a big impact...there was such a missing segment of the market for all-electric vehicle...the 40 mile golf carts and the psuedo electric cars were not great choices.

My $2500 is in for a Y. My HOV sticker will expire by end of 2021 so I might sell my 3 and upgrade to a Y. I've always been fond of hatchbacks.

The Model Y panoramic glass roof seems like a "cooker". Wonder if it will come with some kind of shading mechanism.

I think the Model S can be set up with jump seats and become a 6 seater, can't it?

Does this look like a model 3 hatchback to anyone else?  How are those 3rd row passengers going to fit in this thing.  Built for kids I guess.

It precisely is a 3 hatchback. It's leveraging most of the same production line and tech to push out faster.
