The car was exactly what I expected — a slightly larger Model 3 with a hatchback and optional third row seating. I actually really like it! I love almost everything about the Model 3, but in general I prefer hatchbacks and a slightly higher seating position, so the Model Y looks just right. If I could afford it I'd order one, but the Model 3 will have to do for now. 😄
But I agree the presentation was...odd. It started out great with a nice leisurely stroll through Tesla memory lane. Elon seemed happy, almost bubbly. Then they finally brought out the Model Y and Elon gave some quick specs, barely said anything nice about it, and said good night.
I got the impression Elon really doesn't care about this car except in a business sense. It looks like it'll be a great car and will sell well, but there's nothing really new or exciting about it, so maybe he's just not as interested as he has been in Tesla's other models.
Tesla is being really cagey about the hatchback, too. It was barely mentioned in the presentation, wasn't demonstrated, and there are no clear pictures of it on the website. They were similarly cagey about the Model 3's trunk when it was revealed, and later made some design tweaks to it. I wonder if they're still planning to do the same to the Model Y.
