Y Didn’t They Build This First? | Tesla Model Y: The One You’ve Waited For

Why didn’t Tesla make the Model Y first? We’ve been thinking the same exact thing. Essentially a crossover version of the Model 3 sedan, the Model Y will initially launch in long range and performance versions, both of which will have dual-motor setups. A standard range model will also come but it’ll likely be awhile before you can get your hands on it and it’ll likely be only a single-motor configuration.

Think of the Model Y as a more practical take on the Model 3. It has the same family look as other Tesla vehicles but has a taller roofline like its big brother, the Model X. While its available in five- or seven-passenger configurations, we’re suspecting the latter will have a vestigial third row best suite for children or folded down. Think of it more as emergency use seats rather than actual usable seats.

Seeing as Tesla is well-known for its straight-line performance, we’re putting the Model Y through its paces to see where it stands. Will this keep Tesla on top as the king of EVs or are legacy automakers finally catching up? Let’s find out.

0 to 60 mph: 4.9 seconds
60 to 0: 126 feet
Cabin noise: B; 72.5 dB
