Tesla’s newest production sedan, the Model Y, is an all-electric, mid-size SUV designed for maximum versatility and safety. Model Y will start at $45,690 for the Standard Range version and comes in Long Range, Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive, and Performance variants. The Model Y is being produced at Tesla’s Freemont, California facility was affected by a government-mandated COVID-19 shutdown which has caused some production delays. Tesla founder, Elon Musk, tweeted yesterday, July 12, 2020: “We have reduced pricing on Model Y LR dual motor & will offer a LR single motor Y in a few months, which improves affordability, while still keeping the product excellent.” A $39,000 Model Y will be available later this year.
Model Y is spacious enough to carry seven adults and their gear and offers at 316 mile range,
superior performance, and advanced technology. The high-efficiency power-train and ultra-responsive motors will provide 0-60 mph acceleration in as little as 3.5 seconds and a top speed of up to 150 mph, with excellent handling for any road condition. Model Y Standard Battery will have 230 miles of range, while Model Y Long Range will travel up to 300 miles on a single charge.
Inside, Model Y’s panoramic glass roof and high seating creates a feeling of spaciousness and offers an expansive view from every seat in the vehicle. The front trunk and split-folding second-row seats provide 66 cubic feet (1.9 cubic meters) of storage space. Like Model 3, Model Y requires no keys, but connects to your smartphone for seamless entry and exit, with a single 15-inch touchscreen interface inside for all the car’s controls. Model Y also connects with the Tesla Mobile app for unique, easy-to-access features like remote unlock, Summon, remote pre-conditioning, location tracking, Speed Limit Mode, and much more.
The Model Y is designed to be the safest mid-size SUV. Built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, the low center of gravity, rigid body structure, and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection. Its aerodynamic design and leading battery technology also making it highly efficient in terms of energy usage, meaning you can achieve better range with less energy than other EVs on the market. Model Y is also compatible with our current Supercharger network of over 16,000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as our new VSuperchargers, which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour.
