It's a shame they didn't have their usual camera gear, I would have liked to see more driving/action shots from more angles. Either way, it looks very compelling. I'm not sure if, for me personally, it's worth the premium over the 3, but for many/maybe most people, I would say that yes it is.
Those huge turbine wheels are lovely
If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.

I'm fine with the central screen, but would love it if higher trim versions got a HUD to complement it.
The Model 3 and Model Y are more cost sensitive than Tesla's two bigger/more expensive models, and probably could not rationalize the investment required for completely new interiors in RHD markets. The central iPad and symmetrical dashboard saves a lot of money.
I don't think the Model Y is any better or worse than any of those other vehicles, from a styling perspective.
The German brands, however, at least offer regular "square-backed" versions of all their fastback SUVs.
Since Tesla already has the Model X as a fastback, it might have been nice to make Model Y with a more conventional SUV profile.
This would have helped distinguish it from the 3 and X visually.
There are alternatives to buying a Tesla, at this point, yet the Model 3 is still one of the best selling cars (EV or otherwise) in the US.
Other cars, EV and otherwise, are adopting the Tesla "big a$$ Tablet" layout.
I am not saying that I like the central tablet located gauges at all, but I think it might more of a concern for car enthusiasts vs the everyday car buying public.
