Tesla's next car, following the launch of the Model 3, will be the Model Y. The company has teased an image of the car and it shows a distinct lack of door wing mirrors.
The image was shown at Tesla's own Annual Shareholder Conference in California, and along with no door mirrors, it purports to a slightly more striking and angry design, compared to its sleek siblings.
It's thought that the Model Y will use cameras instead of the door mirrors. Cameras would likely be installed where the mirrors would normally be found, and they will show a live feed on screens inside the cabin.
As Autocar - who picked up the picture - states, laws currently require cars to be fitted with door wing mirrors. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has apparently said the Model Y won't be released until at least 2019, or maybe 2020, so there could be potential for the laws to be changed by then to accept the proposal.
The Model Y will be based on the same underpinnings as the upcoming Model 3, but will be fitted a much more advanced version of the company's Autopilot software, which can already control the car's steering, acceleration and brakes when on the motorway.
