The fourth model from Tesla, the Tesla Model Y, was revealed in March 2019 and completes Tesla’s ‘S3XY’ line-up, joining the current Model S, Model 3, and Model X.
The compact SUV will share around 75% of its components with the Model 3 and therefore expected to have a similar electric range, as well as performance. The similarities between the Model 3 and Model Y are also expected to result in a similar price. Whilst prices are not yet confirmed, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has advised that as the Model Y will be “about 10% larger” than the Model 3, it will cost “about 10% more & have slightly less range for same battery”.
The latest provisional specs for the Tesla Model Y are as follows:
Tesla Model Y
Performance AWD - £TBC / 3.5s 0-60mph / 298 range (WLTP est.)
Long Range AWD - £TBC / 4.8 0-60mph / 314 range (WLTP est.)
Long Range - £TBC / 5.5s 0-60mph / 336 range (WLTP est.)
Tesla Model 3
Standard Range Plus - £42,990 / 5.3s 0-60mph / 254 range (WLTP)
Long Range AWD - £51,490 / 4.4 0-60mph / 348 range (WLTP)
Performance AWD - £56, 490 / 3.2s 0-60mph / 329 range (WLTP)
The Model Y shares the same cabin design as the Model 3 and also features the same 15” central touch screen display. However unlike the Model 3, the Model Y will be available as a 7-seater. The optional third row, according to Tesla, will allow ‘room for up to seven adults’.
The Model Y is expected to go on sale in the US at the end of 2020. It’s not yet confirmed when the Tesla Model Y will launch the car in the UK but expected to be from 2021.
