This electric SUV is based on the Model 3.
It has the same distracting control layout where drivers interact with a central touchscreen for many functions.
The all-wheel-drive Long Range and Performance versions have an EPA estimated 316 miles of range.
Lower priced versions with a shorter range are slated for the near future as well as a third-row seat option.
The Y accelerates quickly and silently and handling is agile.
However, the ride is stiff and wind noise is pronounced.
Rear seat room is generous.
The Y comes with built-in games for when owners charge the car on a long drive in one of Tesla's supercharger venues.
Automatic emergency braking is standard but the blind spot warning is not effective enough.
