Finally, the Tesla Model Y

After so much anticipation and speculation, we finally have seen the Tesla Model Y. In standard fashion for the company, a reveal was held in a party-like atmosphere far away from any car shows.

True to rumor, the all-electric midsize SUV will be quite affordable. It starts at $39,000 if you want the Standard Range version. For that you get 230 miles of range, which isn’t half bad for the price.

At $48,200, the base Long Range version boasts 300 miles of range and 0-60 in 5.5 seconds. Tesla also plans to sell a Dual-Motor AWD model for $52,200.

The hot Model Y Performance goes for $61,200. For that lump of cash, you get a scorching 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and plenty of bragging rights.

Like the Model 3, the Tesla Model Y comes with a dramatic panoramic glass roof. You also don’t need a key to use the SUV, because your smartphone fills that role. Also, there’s a 15-inch touchscreen that controls pretty much everything, instead of different switchgear.

Tesla will sell you a Model Y with third-row seats for an extra $3,000. A visit from the cops because the neighbors think you’re loading the kids into the trunk comes free of charge.

Delivery for the Tesla Model Y starts in the fall of 2020 with the Long Range, Dual-Motor AWD, and Performance versions. The Standard Range will be the last version released with a launch date of Spring 2021. The online configurator is up and Tesla is taking orders now.
