Positioned as ‘roomier than a Model 3, less bulky than a Model X’, the Model Y is Tesla’s entry into the rapidly growing compact SUV segment which is taking car markets by storm across the world.

Tesla’s offering up several different versions of the Model Y, from the Standard Range version which will set you back $39,000 to the Long Range, Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive, and Performance versions. If you opt for the Long-Range version you’ll get 300 miles on a single charge, but will have to pay in the region of $47,000. Choose the Performance Version ($60,000) and you’ll be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.
The Model Y will be available from Autumn 2020.

Tesla’s fifth model to be released, the Model Y will have enough space to carry seven adults (and their gear/luggage), whilst also ‘handling like a sports car’ reaching a top speed of 150 mph according to Elon Musk.

According to a statement released by Tesla today the:

‘Model Y is designed to be the safest mid-size SUV. Built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, the low centre of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection. Its aerodynamic design and leading battery technology also make 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 more than 12,000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as our new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour’.
Elon Musk claims that the Model Y will be able to hold 7 people whilst also handling like a sports car.

Deliveries of the new Model Y are expected to begin in Fall 2020 for the Performance, Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive, and Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive variants. If you’re after the Standard model, you’ll have to wait until Spring 2021 to take delivery.
