The Tesla Model Y Compact Crossover is expected to deliver in the Summer of 2020. More practical than the Model 3, the Tesla Model Y is a little taller and roomier. The Model Y will come with some variants, with the base model starting in a range of 230 miles.
The Tesla Model Y is similar to the Model X, without the Falcon Wing doors. The long and performance range Model Y’s will ring in at $49,200 and $62,200 and are currently available to order on Tesla’s site.
Utility is the focus for this model with versatile seating and storage options. There will be an option to add a third row of seats for an additional $3,000, along with foldable seats to extend a passthrough trunk.

A recent survey by Autolist finds that customers are split between the Tesla Model Y and the Mustang Mach E. The split is 49% to 51%. Key reasons people were slightly more interested in the Mach E have to do with Ford’s dealer services and overall styling.
Consumers look to the Model Y because of the Supercharging network, the brand, and the expected performance.
