Preview, Model Y

Officially announced on March 14, 2019, Model Y represents for various reasons one of the most anticipated means of this 2021; not only with regard to the electrical sector, but also for the automotive sector at 360 degrees. If with Model 3, Tesla has come closer to the Old Continent, reaching decidedly interesting volumes and ousting well-known cars (and historic ones, such as Golf), with Model Y it aims at a different audience such as the one who loves SUVs and crossovers. Officially presented in Italy just a week ago, it can be configured on the official Tesla website and the first models will be delivered starting from September 2021.

How it is

The features of Model Y have been known for some time now as it shares a good part of the specifications of its sister Model 3; the data sheet is summarized in two engines, both for Long Range and for Performance. While Long Range covers the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 5 seconds flat, the spicier variant only needs 3.7 seconds. The estimated range for both versions is respectively, in the WLTP cycle, of 507 and 480 km. The AC recharge is up to 11 kW, while the DC reaches 250 kW.

The dimensions are the “classic” crossover models; Model Y measures 4.75 meters in length, 2.13 meters in width (with mirrors open) and 1.62 meters in height. The ground clearance is just under 17 centimeters, an adequate value for the segment in which it fits. The more traditional SUVs, in fact, have a much higher height even in the order of 20 centimeters; even if the difference may seem limited to you, we assure you that 3 centimeters on the field may not be so few. Numbers in hand, we don't differ too much from Model 3 even if at a glance it appears more voluminous. The cockpit is large and spacious, and the driving seat is significantly raised compared to that of Model 3 that we have tried on several occasions.

Little information regarding the batteries and we will not be able to know more aspects until we have the car on test (spoiler: not long!). Some rumors suggest that on Model Y the manufacturer has installed the latest cells made by LG Chem, ie NCMAs instead of the more common NCAs. The difference? Greater resistance in the charging and discharging phases, especially at high temperatures.

Standard equipment

On Model Y there are a series of accessories that you will hardly find installed (basic) on other models. On the outside, for example, we find 19 "wheels combined with Michelin Pilot Sport EV tires, numerous cameras, electro-actuated tailgate, photochromic and electrically lockable mirrors.

Inside, on the other hand, there are heated seats (all ), two-position adjustable sofa, panoramic roof with UV and infrared protection, USB Type-C sockets, zone climate with HEPA filter and much more. The inevitable on-board computer assisted by a 15 "touch screen hides 1 year of Premium Connectivity, that is maps with satellite view, Netflix, Twitch, YouTube, Internet Browser and Spotify Premium.
