Tesla CEO Elon Musk couldn’t help but admire the company’s upcoming Model Y crossover in an earlier conference call, according to foreign media. And it’s worth noting that Musk said the car could be ready for production as early as next summer, so consumers will probably be able to get there sooner than expected.

If Tesla can launch the Model Y on time this time, its sales performance will be very interesting. It’s fair to say that Tesla itself has very high expectations, and Musk recently said the Model Y would easily become Tesla’s most popular model. “I actually recently piloted the Model Y release candidate, and I think it’s going to be amazing and definitely very popular.” I think it’s probably going to — that’s just my opinion — that’s more than the Model S, X and 3 combined in sales. “
