12 months ago, Elon musk introduced the Model Y to the world. It was a subtle introdcution to the world. Some have said that the model Y reveal was a less impressive introduction of any Tesla before and after. The question is why? Could it be due to the similarities with Model 3 taking 75% of the parts that the Model 3 has? Maybe, but I think there may be a greater theory.
SUV market is huge globally and as such Tesla understands, to compete you have to be part of the field. How do you do this easily and ahead of time? You use what you have already designed and make it incrementally better.
So, the Model Y is born.
Since then we have had little insight into the vehicle or its timeline until Tesla announced that deliveries would start in March. Today is the 14th March and the first deliveries have already started according to recent reports.
You tube, Twitter, Facebook and many more social media accounts are all a fluster over the model Y. Any Tesla fan would be anxious to see the new car on the road because the rumors are suggesting that this will be the best-selling vehicle from Tesla yet.
One thing that had not been anticipated by anyone was the outbreak of a modern Pandemic that is impacting global population, markets, companies and above all else production of things.
This pandemic is real, not a myth and not to be underestimated. There is going to be impact. I have a health background and know the impact this disease can do, and I also know that what China did with Social distancing is going to be the only way forward until we find a treatment.
The impact that is yet to be realized is the impact to production. If Model Y is a shining light at the beginning of the year 2020 for Tesla and yet they are about to find it difficult to meet expectation due to unforeseen circumstances.
Will it sell like expected? Will it continue to wow the general public when they are closed behind self-imposed and then governmental restrictions to move. In the short term I think deliveries will slow and the world will possibly take time to reflect on the important things in life.
Hopefully they will realize that the world needs change to be able to survive and enjoy the best of life. They will also realize that if they are confined to home that there are a lot of people online who want to share their story about amazing cars called Tesla’s and hopefully, they will think they are amazing and wants to buy one. So, they will order online. Here’s Hoping.
Tesla will survive and the Model Y will thrive and grow and become the juggernaut that everyone thinks it should be. The pandemic will recede, and a vaccine will be developed, and the world will move forward with sadness and sorrow. It will be looking for ways to make the sunshine brighter and the people smile larger than before the pandemic occurred.
Let’s hope Tesla and Model Y help to heal the damage.
