The Frightening Economics of the Tesla Model Y

The Tesla Model Y is in stealth mode as all 4 of Tesla's Gigfactories ramp production of the electric SUV/Crossover. Elon Musk has undersold the Model Y, the seemingly harmless vehicle, but with his expectations of 1.5 Million in sales, Model Y will crush the European automakers. New Gigacastings, the 4680 Battery Cell, a Paint Shop, and economies of scale, will allow Tesla to reduce the price of Model Y while offering exceptional quality. once the new Gigafactories open, it's game, set, match.

    Everybody else is going high and ultra-tensile strength steel and Tesla goes giga-shit and a novel crap alloy."The Steel Market Development Institute last month estimated OEMs revealed more than 65 vehicles containing advanced high-strength steel at 2018 auto shows nationwide, a report with ramifications for collision repair."

    Here is today’s other baffling science story: In its quest to save weight, Volkswagen is ripping aluminum out of plans and bills-of-material, to replace it - with steel. Not good old steel. They replace it with much better new steel. According to Reuters, “Volkswagen AG is using new high-strength steel to make cars lighter and comply with strict emissions rules, confounding forecasts that aluminum would be the metal of choice for reducing weight.” High tensile steel is up to six times stronger than conventional steel, and helped Volkswagen reduce the new Golf’s weight by about 100 kg, while also saving money. “Aluminum is about a third of the weight of conventional steel but costs three times as much,” says Reuters

    Insane either way."The single-piece casting for Model Y will replace around 70 stampings, extrusions and castings that currently make up the same fabricated assembly in the Model 3, on which much of the Model Y is based. Musk described the Model 3’s rear structure as “a patchwork quilt - it’s not great. The complexity in the body shop is insane,” he said."

    I have already appropriately dubbed it Humpty Fuckin' Dumbty.A couple inconveniently placed speed bumps,a two ton battery pack and junk."He said the current Tesla Model Y has “two of the biggest castings we’ve ever seen in a car. We’ve never seen them used in an automobile before of that size. There’s lots [of innovative aluminum applications] at Cadillac, BMW, Audi - they’ve all used castings. But nothing quite the size of this thing.” Munro also participated in the podcast in which Musk spoke of the coming single-piece casting. Moving to the “megacasting,” as Munro dubbed it, “definitely wins the prize,” he asserted. “That’s going to be the biggest casting for quite a while. Nobody’s exploring that.”

    Love my model Y LR AWD. It has precise handling, extreme acceleration, very roomy even for a tall guy like me. It costs about 3-4 times less to fuel than my wife's ICE car. The quiet power and regenerative braking is addictive and presents a luxury feel even with its modest interior. Tesla is so far ahead of the competition and is not resting on its laurels. They are opening additional service centers and adding more super chargers on a steady basis. With the new cast structures and new 46X80 batteries, they will be improving performance and reducing costs at the same time, unheard of with other auto producers.

    Tesla will in the future develop or buy a battery technology that will be revolutionary, that battery will overcome the issue of batteries getting too hot, it will be so safe that a liquid component can be drunk without any adverse effect. They may already have the beginning technology but not yet making it known. Possibly the adding of a new under $20,000 cost car will be announced because the battery will be less costly to produce and at high volume, allow that saving along will more advanced tooling this price point making an EV competitive with gas-powered cars. The truck for the general market will also use this new battery technology.

    To each their own. I owned one and glad I sold it. It was garbage. I would like to see the Y quality improved from Austin, as mine had many panels misaligned and the overall driving was ok--but the range still not good on std. the UI is garbage and a royal PIA--not useful, constantly have to touch/look at the screen, warning bells on stupid things, can't just reach down and do something--have to ask it to do something or navigate screens. I went to a body shop and saw what happens if rear ended. The one-piece rear will cause many of these to be totaled easily. They don't know how to fix them. The economics are changing on EV's because they are purposely reducing ICE capacity, increasing cost and Biden is doing all he can to make gas $8/gallon. I am all for alternate energy, but the focus on EV is curious, but understandable. Use of hydrogen via fuel cell/amonia is a far better replacement for gas. When you buy a Y, you are at Elon's mercy & it will be outdated in 6 months. After what I went through, I will never own a Tesla again. I'll pay $8/gal and drive an old Nissan until i can't fix it or wait for Xpeng, Nio's. My old leafs were better, more useful but the range/battery life did them in. you will be much happier in a camry.

    The end of ICE dominance will be when the cars cost the same or less to buy, are as repairable as ICE cars or more, and are able to charge within 300 seconds. However, all I see is an arms race of manufacturers making non-repairable cars with more and more batteries to give more range, more powerful motors to drag those batteries around, and bigger screens to justify the enormous price without the need for luxury materials. It's the same thing that happened in the early 1900's and ended EVs. If you say it won't happen again, Let me remind you EVs were 50% of the whole fleet back then.

Count Your Immigration, Paris-Accord, Democratic Party Blessings that People like Einstein and Elon Musk, IMMIGRANTS, came here "before You guys" made America Great Again. Making US a place to AVOID in pursuit of "A" Dream. AS IF (!) No one noticed that America was NOT "your land"...You are ALL Immigrants! Immigrants turned Hippocrates...alienating even Mexicans - who are the work force for the Country. Problem with the Authoritarian Republican attitude of worshipping a Fascists Trump Demagog is You no longer have a voice in the Government's Immigration, Climate Change or other policies through your wasted Vote for Republican Representatives; as they cower in fear of Your Demagod Master. Focused, not on any Policy that benefits US (because You take the rest of the Country down this Authoritarian Rule with You), but on not upsetting the Master. Their new job description addendum - boot, or other part, licker. In four years, how quick was He to follow the needs of the Uligarcial Class (Here and in Russia), adding trillions to the National Debt, giving tax breaks to the Rich, increasing the gap bet the Rich and Poor, isolating US from Foreign Immigration, strangling investment into Renewable Energy like Musk's Solar City...all in favor of his rich happy oil, coal, and gas friends. If not for "Immigrants" like Elon Musk, visionaries with a moral compass like AOC, and "just enough" Democrates to Vote Him out in 2020, our future would have forever been lost. The Great Experiment, kept alive through the deaths of hundreds of Millions in two World Wars, GIVEN AWAY so easily... Divide and Conquer! Use the Republican Vote to Vote in a Tyrant on the back of Freedom of Speech. Rather than the Dream of One Man, a Constituion Experiment, for a diverse People, United to be competitive against all who would want to trample on Us economically or otherwise - We would have become 2nd to China, and then third to India. The eloquently inscription for all Immigrants on Lady Liberty, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” replaced by the vile soup of Division feed by Fox News.... Thank goodness for Immigrants, that still believe in the American Dream... I'm jus sayin....

    I really don't think that the Model Y will crush European automakers, mainly because there is a much greater choice of EV's at lower price point and arguably better quality and finish (and yes this does really matter in certain markets) than the any of the Tesla range. Tesla remains an expensive EV choice - considerably more costly than they are in the USA. Currently the Zoe, was the top seller in 2020 and it looks as if the iD4 is topping the sales charts in Europe at the moment. Both are cheaper than the Model Y and price is arguably more important than clever engineering - the BMW i3 demonstrated that. Bear in mind that one of the top selling points of the Model 3 in the UK is the reliable charging infrastructure and this really was Tesla's masterstroke.

    Nice to see all these Model Y's being ordered. Yay Tesla stop prices. I haven't bought a new car in almost 20 years. I'll watch long term reliablity, wait for local repair shops to come on board and see long term battery degridation life. Maybe I'll pick up one of yours in a couple..🤷🏾‍♂️

    This great design with much fewer parts also has the great potential to become irrepairable in many more instances because of structural damage that cant be fixed without exchanging the whole one-piece design.

    The video narrator said twice that Tesla has not started deliveries of Model Y standard range. Model Y standard range vehicles were already offered in January 2021. They stopped offering them 3 weeks later. Luckily my wife got one at the $37,990 price. Also, narrator never states that ARK is a HUGE investor in Tesla stock and holds long positions. Hardly non-biased research.

    Here in the US, next vehicle for our family will be Model Y. Have had the order screen up for the last 3 months. Have been waiting for the infrastructure bill and EV tax credit to get passed before buying.

    I would love to see some more colors, especially a light green, blue, or Aqua blue/green.

    I have a model Y early version. Its color is white and white and white. The body is white, bumpers are another version of white, and the front trunk is yet a different version of white. Best car that I have ever owned.

    this video is awful. you seem to have very little understanding of the economics of OEM and the technology tesla uses. at about 3 mins you talk about how it reduces mass 10% yet this only results in a 14% improvement (which is debatable) regardless its a linear relationship and normal incremental improvement. im not going to waste my time typing too much but it just gets worse from here. panasonics own documents show they wont even be prototyping the 4680 until middle of next year, if they can make it work. if they can make it work which is also debatable panasonic has agreed to licence to anyone else. in other words tesla has no IP. its just more elon vapourware. this guy is a first class con man. that is all. the real OEMs have arrived and they know how to build cars economically not by juicing numbers with ZEV credits which will evapourate now they have arrived. seriously you are a fanboi and in a cult. its sad. i was too until his fraudulent acquisition of Solarcity. you need to see with your own eyes. i cannot convince you that you are cult member. please do better. this video is an embarrassment.

    Instead of prices dropping like everyone keeps talking about, they just keep going up. If he would produce a nicely equipped model Y and sell it for $40K, this is when things would blow up for him way more than they already are. People would flock to get his product.

    What is the carbon footprint of a Tesla plant after sourcing raw materials, the cost of transforming them, transporting them, find and employing people, the cost of maintaining a facility, maintaining the workforce; healthcare, transportation, feeding, housing, advertising...wouldn't it be better if we just all "stayed at home"? Forget about cars at all. If you want to save the planet just don't move.

    No it won't crush the European competitors. Europeans like smaller cars, like the Renault Zoe. Probably the Model 3 will stay the best-selling Tesla in Europe.

    I read all of these comments about how great the electric vehicle is, but coming from a semi-rural citizen of eastern NC, there are just too many miles and not enough charging capacity infrastructure, especially for the quantity of people who are forced to rent living accommodations, because of the lack of affordable housing to purchase. That doesn't factor in the higher utility costs of electricity, because of the many small-town municipalities who've developed a monopoly as the sole provider.

    I've got a model Y. Best car I've owned and I have owned a lot of cars. ICE models are going the way of the horse and buggy, though most people just don't know it yet. EVs in general (I previously owned a Nissan Leaf), and especially Teslas, are so far superior it is mind-blowing.

    Apparently you didn't notice how I said ICE models meaning cars. Of course internal combustion isn't going anywhere, only an imbicile would misinterpret what I said as meaning that. Go buy an EV then try to tell me ICE cars aren't doomed.
