Tesla Model Y design
Based on the best-selling Tesla Model 3’s saloon design, the Model Y sits between this and the larger, more expensive Model X.
Although it’s very similar in style to the Model 3, the Model Y is not insignificantly longer and taller than Tesla’s ever-popular saloon. Width is virtually identical between both models.
Like many of the cars in Tesla’s range, you can have a few more style upgrades when you opt for the quicker Performance trim. In this case, you’ll larger 21in alloy wheels instead of the option for 19in or 20in ones.
Other than this though, the biggest appeal of choosing the Performance spec is as the name suggests: you want to go really quick.
You can choose between a number of solid or metallic paints, the latter of which give the car a shinier look, especially in the light. Of those paint colours available, you can select Solid White, Solid Black, Silver Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic or Red Multi-Coat.
Tesla Model Y features
As standard, both versions of the Tesla Model Y include the following features:
- Premium Interior
- Power adjustable front seats
- Heated front and rear seats
- 2nd row seats that fold flat
- Premium audio – 14 speakers, 1 subwoofer, 2 amps, and immersive sound
- Premium Connectivity (30 days included)
- LED fog lamps
- Tinted glass roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection
- Power folding, heated side mirrors
- Music and media over Bluetooth®
- Custom driver profiles
- HEPA air filtration system
- Centre console with storage, 4 USB ports and docking for 2 smartphones
Both the Longe Range AWD and Performance Model Y vehicles are available with ‘Enhanced Autopilot’ for an extra £3,400 and ‘Full Self-Driving Capability’ for an extra £6,800.
The former gives you an additional five driver-assistance system features with your Model Y:
- Navigate on Autopilot
- Automatic lane change
- Automatic parking
- Smart summon
The latter doesn’t make the vehicle autonomous. You’re still required to be in charge of the car, with certain features requiring turn signals and are limited in range. Nevertheless, Tesla is quick to point out that self-driving features of the car will evolve over time through over-the-air software updates.
Tesla Model Y engines
As we mentioned earlier, there are two different versions of the Tesla Model Y available to order. Both are adequately quick thanks to having dual motors and all-wheel drive, but power and performance differs quite significantly.
For example, the lesser-powered and less torquey Long Range AWD spec has a total of 434bhp and 364 lb-ft of torque. This translates to a 0-60mph acceleration time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 135mph. Now by any standards that’s pretty rapid – even the entry-level Standard Plus Tesla Model 3 can only manage this time in 5.3 seconds.
Acceleration gets stupidly quick when you choose the Performance guise of the Tesla Model Y. With more powerful dual motors (563bhp in total) and more torque (487 lb-ft), 0-60mph takes just 3.5 seconds. There’s also increased top speed, with the Performance spec able to reach 150mph. Not that you’d ever be hitting anywhere near top speed in either of these cars.
Tesla Model Y price
If you plan on purchasing your Tesla Model Y, it’s available to order for £54,990 in Long Range AWD spec, or £64,990 in Performance spec.
However, the chances are that, like most people, you’ll be looking to some kind of finance. That’s where we can help, with prices currently available to lease the Tesla Model Y from £568 per month*. This price includes free UK mainland delivery, road tax for the duration of your agreement and Tesla’s four-year/50,000-mile warranty (whichever comes first).
