After the Model S, the Model X, the Model 3 and the Semi, Tesla will launch the Model Y, a compact SUV that will share the architecture of the Model 3. While the production objectives of the Model S do not have have been fully achieved – but remain in the second half of the year – there is already talk of assembling this Model Y at the plant in Fremont, California.
