Current Model
This electric SUV is essentially an SUV version of the Model 3, sharing key underpinnings, equipment, and features. Like its sibling the Model Y is quick and agile, with handling that draws comparisons to sports cars.
But it also has the same distracting control layout and a similarly stiff ride. The AWD Long Range version has an EPA-estimated 330-mile range. Charging from almost empty takes 10 hours on a 240-volt connector, but it is quicker with Tesla's wall charger. The Model Y is taller and roomier than the Model 3. As such, rear-seat room is much better and the hatchback layout provides more versatility. Both five- and seven-passenger seating configurations are available. It has no proper BSW; instead, images of nearby cars are displayed on the center screen, which diverts the driver's attention.
