Tesl has unveiled a new electric vehicle, the Model Y crossover. During the premiere, the head of the firm, Elon Musk, said that it would be the automaker's best-selling model.
Model Y is built on the basis of the cheapest electric car of the company - the Model 3 sedan. The drag coefficient is the same: 0.23. The crossover looks like a lifted version of the soplatform and does not differ in original design solutions. For example, for the sake of economy, the rear doors open in the classic way, and not upward, like the older Model X.
The minimalistic interior is almost exactly the same as the Model 3 - all versions are equipped with a glass roof, and on the front panel there are hidden ventilation vents and a free-standing 15-inch touchscreen. However, due to the modified layout, the seven-seater crossover equipped with three rows of seats (the latter because of the sloping roof - without head restraints). The maximum trunk volume with the seats folded in the two rear rows is 1,840 liters.
In total, the Model Y will have four modifications. The basic Standard Range has only rear-wheel drive, can travel 370 kilometers on a single charge and accelerate to 97 km / h in 5.9 seconds. The maximum speed is 193 km / h. The price is 39 thousand dollars (2.55 million rubles), which is only four thousand dollars more than the initial version of Model 3. But such crossovers will appear on sale last - in the spring of 2021.
The rest of the options will be on sale autumn 2020… Model Y Long Range for 47 thousand dollars (3.08 million rubles) is also rear-wheel drive, but a more capacious battery allows you to drive 483 kilometers on a single charge. In this version, acceleration to 97 km / h takes 5.5 seconds, and the maximum speed is 209 km / h. The all-wheel drive version of the Dual Motor AWD with an additional electric motor on the front axle costs 51 thousand dollars (3.34 million rubles). Its characteristics: 451 kilometers without recharging, 4.8 seconds to 97 km / h and a maximum speed of 217 km / h.
- The top Performance version for 60 thousand dollars (3.93 million rubles) also has four-wheel drive and a 451 km range, but more powerful electric motors allow you to accelerate to 97 km / h in just 3.5 seconds, and the maximum speed reaches 241 km / h
