Tag: Tesla Model Y

The Tesla Model Y is a battery electric compact crossover manufactured by Tesla, Inc. Tesla unveiled it in March 2019, started production at its Fremont plant in January 2020, and started deliveries on March 13, 2020. It is based on the Model 3 sedan platform. The Model Y shares an estimated 75% of its parts with the Tesla Model 3, which includes a similar interior design and electric powertrain.

There were four planned powertrain configurations for the Model Y: Standard Range Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD), Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive, Long Range with Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive (AWD), and Performance (with Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive). The Standard Range RWD configuration was initially canceled in July 2020, due to the range (230 mi or 370 km EPA) being unacceptably low to CEO Elon Musk but was orderable as of January 2021 (with 244 mi or 393 km of EPA range). As of December 6, 2021, Tesla formally notified people who had pre-ordered the Long Range RWD that their chosen configuration is no longer available.
