Tesla Model Y mid-size electric SUV breaks cover; likely range of 482km

-    The Model Y is the fourth production model from Tesla after the S, X and 3. 

-    Comes with Standard Battery and Long Range versions with a range of 370 and 482 kilometres respectively. 

-    0-100kmph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 241kmph.

After almost three years of anticipation, the Tesla Model Y is here. It is the mid-size SUV which can carry seven adults and their gear and offers leading range, superior performance, and the most advanced technology, claims the California-based carmaker. 

Based on Model 3, Model Y is the newest contender in the growing electric compact crossover market. With prices starting at 39000 US Dollars, the Y offers a range 370 kilometres in the Standard guise, meanwhile, the more expensive model is the Long Range dual-motor AWD spec with 482 kilometres range which can do the 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.5 seconds. 

Unmistakably a Tesla from the outside, the cabin is no different either. It doesn’t get the flashy gull-wing doors as the Model X though and has a three-row layout to seat seven inside the spacious cabin. The front trunk and split-folding second-row seats provide a total of 66 cubic feet (1900 litres) of storage space, claims Tesla. There is a minimalistic dash as seen on all other Tesla models, massive 15-inch touchscreen interface for all the vehicle controls, and all the other features like remote unlock, Summon mode, remote pre-conditioning, location tracking and Speed Limit Mode are present as well.

The Y is compatible with the current Supercharger network as well as Tesla’s new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1,000 miles per hour. Its low centre of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zone also make it one of the safest mid-size SUVs. 

The deliveries for Model Y are slated to commence next year, with the Model Y Standard Range arriving in 2021. The Tesla Model Y is the American carmaker’s take on the Mercedes-Benz EQ, Audi e-tron and the upcoming BMW iNEXT.
