The Tesla Model Y is one of the next brand cars to hit the market. According to the Tesla UK website, production is expected to start in early 2021, meaning there is still some time to see one of these on the road.
However, a Tesla Model Y prototype was caught on the road and with totally different rims from what we have on the market from Elon Musk's company.
Elon Musk says they "devoted a lot of their time to these rims"
Elon Musk stated that these rims were not simple to manufacture and one understands the reason. Apart from being elegant they are totally out of the ordinary.
We can compare the new Tesla rims to airplane turbines. They have a slight curve in the metal as they approach the center.
Rims were unveiled in 2016 but not yet launched
It was in 2016 that we first saw these rims, more precisely in the Model 3 presentation. However, the presentation was in a prototype that was not for testing. That is, it is possible that the rims were not yet 100% but that Elon Musk wanted to still reveal this beauty.
Tesla Model Y could arrive with these rims
Although Tesla doesn't usually wait to bring new products to market, I fully believe the wheels will be unveiled alongside the Model Y launch.
The wheel design credit was given to Joonas Vartola who no longer belongs to the company and who in 2016 decided to be an independent designer.
Tesla Model Y will arrive for 59 thousand euros
This Tesla Model Y will not be a cheap car. On Tesla's website we have a car that is valued at 59 thousand euros. A considerable difference to the 47 thousand dollars (42 thousand euros) requested in the United States of America.
Note that it is only pre-sale at this time, the long range. The standard range model was valued at $ 39,000 or $ 34,000 at current direct exchange rates.
Hopefully the value will drop when the car officially leaves the market. This disparity of values is seriously considerable.
