Tesla Model Y

Tesla just debuted their new Model Y. This is a big one being CUV-ish it is expected to sell very well. Basically think taller, more lift back like Model 3 and you're there. More importantly Tesla now has their S3XY lineup.
Here’s the Model Y lineup that was announced tonight:

Standard Range model will get 230 miles of range with a top speed of 120 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds, with a starting price of $39,000.

The Long Range model will get 300 miles of range with a top speed of 130 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.5 seconds and a starting price of $47,000.

The Dual Motor AWD model will get 280 miles of range with a top speed of 135 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.8 seconds and a starting price of $51,000.

The Dual Motor Performance model will also get 280 miles of range, with a top speed of 150 mph, a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.5 seconds and a starting price of $60,000.

Uh? This thing is between Escape and Edge sized. I'd hope it'd be cheaper than Explorer.

But it’s a full EV! It’s incredible that they can deliver a full EV SUV for this price.

Space wise it’s more like a Ford Edge, due to the design.

Looks very nice. My only wish, and I'm sure Tesla's too, was that it was on sale first, and not the 3. I really want a hatch for versatility.

Re: Tesla Model Y

I built one for $65K. Without 3rd row, which is clearly only for children or pets. Amazing how little you get for so much.

Lol you must be missing something...the Tesla gets a decent rebate, so the actual price is $59k and that’s before any additional rebates states will provide...

This is an amazing deal for a full electric SUV...and it’s priced competively against its competition, like BMW, MB, Audi...except they are all gas.

Re: Tesla Model Y

LOL, pretty sure I am aware of how the government has to use my money and throw it on the hood to move certain products. Talk is that will be coming to an end. Hopefully sooner than later. But in the interim, if I did decide on an EV SUV, I would take advantage of everyone's tax money, and look no further than Audi e-tron, available months from now, not years from now......




....and yes, I am aware it is a bit bigger and pricier.
