Tesla Model Y Specifications Revealed
The Tesla Model Y has been one of the most anticipated electric vehicles in recent times, with everyone eagerly awaiting news on the all-electric compact SUV. Now the model has been officially revealed, with the first models arriving in the UK towards the end of 2020. List prices for the Model Y will start at $48,000 (£36,0000) for the 'Long Range' model which will be available at launch.
Telsa have claimed that the 'Long Range' derivative will offer a more refined performance with a top speed of 130mph, a 0-60mph time of just 5.5 seconds and a all-electric range of 300 miles. It is expected to achieve this range that the Model Y will utilise the same 75kWh battery that features in the Tesla Model 3 Performance. By default, both these models will be rear-wheel drive though a Model Y Dual Motor all-wheel-drive will also be made available in 2020.
The dual motor Model Y is expected to have a range of 280 miles, with the same top speed and 0-60mph time. A more affordable 'Standard Range' variant of the Tesla Model Y will also arrive in 2021 which will be priced from $39,000 (£29,500). The top speed of this version is 120mph, whilst 0-60mph times are achieved in 5.9 seconds and a 230 mile range.
In terms of design, the Tesla Model Y takes a lot of inspiration from the Model X with a range of familiar styling cues, with the omission of the remarkable Falcon Wing doors that feature on the larger SUV.
The Model Y also shares around 75% of its parts with the Model 3, with the interior design baring the greatest resemblance. A spacious cabin with a panoramic glass roof offers a luxurious and open feeling to the new model, with a large 15-inch infotainment screen offering a wide range of advanced features.
