2020 Tesla Model Y Interior & Features

The California brand launches 2020 Tesla Model Y, a compact SUV derived from its sedan. Slightly bigger and a little more expensive than this one, it can have 7 places.

Tesla, like all automakers, could not fail to have a compact SUV in its lineup. This is done with the 2020 Tesla Model Y, derived from its sedan, which it shares 75% of the components. As always, Tesla likes to cultivate the secret, and all the features of this new model have not yet been released, especially the powers of the engines. However, we know that it has a panoramic roof, like a Model X. Interior seats lowered, to which is added the volume of the small front trunk, the vehicle offers a very honorable loading capacity of 1900 liters. Its autonomy would be 370 km for the standard version and more than 500 km the “Long Range” version.

2020 Tesla Model Y Dimension

We do not know, however, its length. According to the firm, it “should be slightly higher than that of the Model 3”, probably between 4.75 m and 4.80 m. This competitor Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC, at least by the template, has, as an option, 7 seats. And this three years, at best, before the first deliveries. The standard autonomy version is displayed at $ 39,000 for the US market.

A quick tour of the Belgian Tesla website gives an idea of the prices that should be applied by the brand on another European market, the performance of the machine, depending on the version, and, above all, delivery times, which have been problematic with Model 3:

Model Y Great autonomy.

Parallel to this launch, Tesla announces a 3rd generation supercharger, which it is currently testing in California. It should halve the cooldown on a long journey. Delivering a power of 250 kW (against 120 kW today), this equipment should allow a model 3 large autonomy to recover nearly 120 km in 5 minutes. The deployment of a “preconditioning the battery” feature, which optimizes the temperature of the battery before reaching a supercharger, should, according to the brand, reduce by 25% the charging time of its batteries. vehicles right now. Remember that Tesla currently has a unique network for broadband charging: 1500 stations in 36 countries, including 430 in Europe.
