For the latest Tesla Model Y pricing and information:
The 2020 Tesla Model Y is a compact electric SUV build from the same foundation at Tesla’s Model 3 sedan. Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio got his hands on a new Model Y and shares his impressions in this review.
Born from the Model 3 the Tesla Model Y is a compact electric SUV with a maximum 316-mile range according to the EPA, and a starting price around $54,000 ($54,190) for the long-range model, including $1,200 in destination charges. The Performance model, like our tester, is $8-grand more. But aren’t 0-60 times of 3.5 seconds worth it? A roughly $40,000 standard Model should arrive sometime in 2021.
Heads up, this particular Model Y is an actual customer car. So, it represents what you might actually buy yourself. Just ignore the fake carbon interior trim…And the probably not legal window tint.
Slip inside and the interior feels incomplete. No gauge cluster. Extreme simplicity. Take that, Scandinavia. The interior is roomier than the Model 3 because the roof is higher. In back the rear seats recline unlike in the Model 3. Boy that’s comfy. Seated behind myself I fit great. The Model Y’s glass roof is cool. But you definitely feel the sun on hot days.
Look slightly right from the driver’s seat and you’ll find critical info on the 15-inch center screen. Looking here rather than here takes some getting used to. But you will adapt quickly. Speaking of the screen, Tesla has done an exemplary job arranging the essential functions. Good thing because, besides the seats, nearly all aspects of the vehicle are controlled through here. Like in the Model 3, the steering wheel controls are used to adjust the mirrors, move the steering wheel, and control the audio system. If that sounds confusing, it is not. Same deal with using the screen to control the vents. It all just works. If Tesla would only include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto this would be my favorite infotainment interface.
Then we have autopilot. It works really well…when it’s working well. Though it can manage the throttle, brakes, steering and make lane changes, autopilot can also get confused, just like human drivers. So, please. No sleeping behind the wheel. I’ll also add that Autotpilot does an unexpectedly amazing job detecting trash cans. Owen Wilson “Wow”. Wing an extra $7,000 at Tesla and you can unlock “Full Self-Driving Capabilities”, enhancing the Y’s skill roster with automatic parking and lane change functions, summon remote vehicle retrieval using Telsa’s app, and automatic on-ramp to off-ramp freeway driving. Again, though it’s labeled “Full Self-Driving”, Teslas do not fully drive themselves. Again, no sleeping behind the wheel.
While we’re in motion I’ll note that the Model Y drives a lot like a Model 3. A low-mounted battery pack means a low center of gravity. Helping the Y trace corners with tenacious competence. And just like the Model 3, the steering feels stable driving in a straight line but has a sporting quick ratio off-center. Small adjustments affect your trajectory in a big way, so drive with precision.
Then there’s the acceleration. If you don’t already know, electric torque can be fun. Let’s see if it’s fun. (hard accel) Yup. Smooth relentless thrust is your reward for driving electric. Bask in its silent intensity.
If you’re motivated, you can drive your Model Y off road. Though the one dirt hill in Long Beach isn’t much of a challenge. For reference, here’s a Toyota Supra going up the same hill. For charging, a standard household outlet is impossibly slow while a 240-volt charger ads roughly 14-miles per hour charged. For fast charging on-the-go Tesla’s vast Supercharging infrastructure is the play.
As for quality issues. Our car’s b-pillar trim doesn’t fit right and neither does this lower bumper trim, the rear door alignment is slightly off, the rear seats are similarly uneven, and there’s a loud rattle coming from the rear somewhere. Among the 3 braking modes I love Hold. You can accelerate and decelerate using just the accelerator in most situations and the Model Y comes to a perfect, buttery smooth stop every time.
And no, Tesla is no longer eligible for federal tax incentives. But there might be state incentives depending on where you live. If you want a pragmatic electric vehicle the Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Kona EV, and Nissan Leaf can all be had for much less but the Model Y’s premium touches and technical strengths put it in another class. As of when this video was made the Mustang Mach E is still a mystery but depending on when you’re watching this it’s probably worth a look. As an alternative you might also consider the Jaguar I-PACE, or hey, how about…the Tesla Model 3. It’s $4,000 cheaper than the Model Y and quite similar. Or maybe spring for a Model X if you need more space and want to dazzle children at daycare.
The Tesla Model Y is the newest Tesla — and it’s eagerly anticipated. Today I’m reviewing the Model Y, and I’m going to show you the quirks and features of the Tesla Model Y during a thorough tour of the Model Y. Then I’m driving the Tesla Model Y, and I’m going to tell you what it’s like on the road.

Is there a more polarizing car company or car than the Tesla Model 3? Maybe, maybe not, but whatever you think, there is much to be said about the disruption happening at Tesla. Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio is never one to shy away from a little controversy, and he takes an in-depth look here at the car that a guy whose name starts with an Elo… believes would change everything.

Lest you think we’ve forgotten about Tesla’s Model S in all the 3, X and Y hullabaloo, you’d be mistaken. Here it is, the 2019 Tesla Model S. And how could we forget with Ludicrous mode and that insane dual-motor power. There’s so much more to talk about, too, so that’s why Micah Muzio is here. Also, he impresses some friends with launches.

Almost a year ago I took delivery of my Tesla Model 3 and since then I’ve driven it over 26,000 miles. Is it still the best car I’ve ever driven or was it a $50,000 mistake? Let’s find out.
In my original Tesla Model 3 review I mainly went over the features of the car but in this video I’m going to go over my experience of owning a #TeslaModel3 and focus on the 3 most important factors:
When I first got my Model 3 I was skeptical on how reliable it would be since it was a first generation of its kind, and there were a few horror stories online from early adopters who were experiencing software & hardware issues.
I can honestly say my Model 3 has been 100% reliable for me so far, and yes even though that should be expected for a brand new car, it’s still a nice surprise how reliable it has been since Tesla is still relatively so young & since Model 3 is a very unique car. Range anxiety does exist, but the Model 3’s energy graph is extremely accurate in predicting the estimated range left when driving so as long as you pay attention to that and plan ahead you’ll be fine and shouldn’t ever have to worry about running out of battery.
For how heavily it’s integrated with software I’m actually surprised my Model 3 has worked this well, and I’ve been extremely satisfied with it over my first 26,000 miles.
Out of all those things during the first 25,000 miles in a Model 3 you only need to do tire rotations and I know this isn’t the norm but luckily for me there’s a local tire shop that gives free tire rotations to Tesla owners, just one of the many perks of going all-electric I guess.
The only thing that has cost me money to drive my Model 3 this far is electricity from either at home or a Tesla Supercharger. My city is one of the best locations to put the Model 3 range efficiency to the test and with an average of 248 Wh/mile through all the seasons means the LR Model 3 is one of, if not the most efficient electric car out right now.
It took 6,457 kWh to drive just over 26,000 miles, and since the Model 3 gets about 80% efficiency it actually took about 8,071 kWh and at my current electricity rate of 6.8 cents per kWh that comes to $549 that I’ve spent on electricity to drive my Model 3 over 26,000 miles. I’ve also charged for free at hotels, parking garages, and family members houses so my total cost to drive over 26,000 miles in my Model 3 is less than $600. My monthly electricity costs have only increased by an average of $36. To put it in perspective, a car that gets 30 mpg at $2.75/gallon would cost $2,383 to drive 26,000 miles and if you add a $50 oil change every 4,000 miles that would be an additional $325. This shows how much a person can save in fuel & oil by going all-electric, especially a Model 3.
It’s no surprise that the Tesla Model 3 is a joy to drive but I’ll quickly go over a few things that I don’t like because nothing is perfect. The windshield and windows fog up more than any other car I’ve ever driven. Fortunately I got some fog reducer that helps. I wish the frunk had a better closing mechanism or was able to close automatically because I hate leaving hand prints on the hood from closing it. I also wish the driver profiles would save the lumbar setting. Luckily that can be fixed with a software update which is one of my favorite things about the Model 3.
Now moving along to the other things that I enjoy most about my Model 3: How a car can be this simple & minimalist yet pack so much power and torque is something I’ll always be impressed with.
Yes there are times when it phantom brakes but if you’re using it as it’s designed you will always have a hand on the wheel ready to take over and I love knowing each time I use it it’s getting better through the neural network.
It charges overnight while I sleep, it stops charging when it reaches whatever limit I have set, and I wake up to an 80% charge every day or 100% charge if I’m about to take a road trip – no more stopping at gas stations. I can tell it to drive somewhere and it gives me real-time step-by-step directions on the beautiful responsive 15” touch screen which is the best screen in any vehicle out right now in my opinion.
Now after a free software update and even after any battery degradation from driving 26,000 miles, my Model 3 now gets 320 rated miles on a full charge.

Introducing the new Tesla Model 3! With a starting price of around $35,000, it’s relatively cheap alternative to the more established Model S. But don’t let the price deceive you – the Model 3 still comes in with just as much high quality tech and styling as you’ll find in its older brother! So is Tesla cutting corners elsewhere to allow you to buy the Model 3 at such a price? Join Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

#Tesla changed the world’s perspective on electric cars with the introduction of the #ModelS in 2012. This was the first mass produced #EV that could do over 200 miles on a single charge with acceleration that could shame gasoline powered sports cars. Over the years, Tesla has continued to make improvements to the Model S in range, performance, technology, and quality and although the current model is due for a significant overhaul, it remains the benchmark electric sedan. For 2019, Tesla has discontinued the 75D battery pack in this video and made the 100 kWh batteries as standard. The model names: 75D, 100D, P100D have also been discontinued and have been replaced with just Model S, Model S Extended Range, Model S Performance, and Model S Performance with Ludicrous Upgrade. #TeslaModelS

It’s been 6 months since took delivery of our Tesla Model 3. In this video, we break down the good the bad, and our overall impressions. I’m joined by my lovely wife Jennie in this video, you can check more of her work out at https://society6.com/jenniferjsullins
Overall the car has been amazing, here are the general feelings in each category:
The car is incredible to drive
Seats and interior are some of our favorites ever
It’s zippy and handles turns great
Acceleration is better than our 2013 Model S
Keycard/App totally sucks, barely works, needs to be fixed
The screen doesn’t always work properly (blank at times, the camera fails)
310 miles of range is AMAZING, we only need to charge ever 3 days
The trunk and frunk offer something to be desired, they work for one of us, but not for our family
Do you have a Model 3? What are your thoughts? Our views come after owning a Tesla Model S for 2 years so understandably are a bit skewed. We hope you love your cars and let us know how you like them in the comments!

// What is Tesla Model 3? (wikipedia)
The Tesla Model 3 is a mid-size (US) / compact executive (EU) luxury all-electric four-door sedan manufactured and sold by Tesla, Inc. According to Tesla officials, the Model 3 standard model delivers an EPA-rated all-electric range of 220 miles (354 km) and the long-range model delivers 310 miles (500 km). The Model 3 has a minimalist dashboard with only a center-mounted LCD touchscreen. Tesla stated that the Model 3 carries full self-driving hardware to be optionally enabled at a future date.
Within a week of unveiling the Model 3 in 2016, Tesla revealed they had taken 325,000 reservations for the car, more than triple the number of Model S sedans sold by the end of 2015. These reservations represent potential sales of over US$14 billion. By August 2017, there were 455,000 net reservations, and an average of 1,800 reservations were being added per day.
Limited production of the Model 3 began in mid-2017, with the first production vehicle rolling off the assembly line on July 7, 2017, and the official launch and delivery of the first 30 cars on July 28. Since inception, customer deliveries totaled 9,946 units through March 2018. On April 18, 2018, Tesla updated its production target to 6,000 vehicles per week by the end of June 2018, an increase from its previous target of 5,000 vehicles per week which was previously promised at earlier dates.
$56,000 Tesla Model 3 Review: Best & most fun car I’ve ever driven! The Model 3 is Tesla’s most affordable car in their current lineup and it’s already the best selling all-electric car in the US and the best selling mid-size premium sedan in the US.
I’ve been a huge Tesla fan for a long time but the moment when my smartphone became my car key, that is when it all started to change for me and I truly realized how far ahead Tesla is, technologically speaking.
The way it works is I can use the Tesla app to manage many different things on my Model 3 from anywhere – see its location, interior temperature, check if it’s charging and how long it has left, view the battery range, turn on heat or AC, remotely unlock or lock the doors, open the frunk/trunk, honk the horn and flash the lights.
As long as I have my smartphone with Bluetooth enabled, the Model 3 senses when I’m near the car and it will automatically unlock when I press to open the door, and it’s ready to drive when I sit down.
It’s different than what people are used to but once you know how to do it, it feels completely natural and that’s the risk and reward that Tesla took with this design.
Windshield wipers can be set to Auto which will enable the wipers to automatically turn themselves on and off based on off it’s raining or not.
The Trip Planner is great because when you type in a destination that is more distance than your current battery range, it will show you which Superchargers you need to stop at and how long you need to charge in order to get to your destination without running out of battery.
It allows music playback through Bluetooth from a smartphone but what I really love is that the Model 3 has built-in LTE connection along with music streaming via Slacker Radio which I find myself using more than Spotify Premium which I did not expect. But when you’re playing music over Bluetooth from your smartphone it does display what you’re playing on the touch screen and you’re able to control the playback from the steering wheel and on-screen buttons in case you wondered about that.
Besides the two stalks on either side that have typical controls like windshield wipers, brights, turn signals, parking button, cruise control and autopilot: the wheel itself has two scroll buttons that can be scrolled up or down, pressed left or right, and clicked in the middle. … My hope is that Tesla can continue to push software updates that will enable more sophisticated voice controls because that’s where many of our devices are moving towards and it would be great to say things like “set cruise control to 70 mph” or “open glovebox”.
Tesla claims this is still a BETA feature but if you’re watching this you’ve probably already heard of Tesla Autopilot which, on certain roads, will automatically steer, accelerate, and brake as needed to stay within the lane at whatever speed you set. To enable Autopilot while driving, double tap down on the right stalk and if it’s available it will pop a message saying to keep your hands on the wheel and be ready to take over at any time.
On roads when Autopilot isn’t available or when it’s limited to a certain speed, I will enable normal cruise control with one tap down of the right stalk and it maintains that speed like any other car but if the car ahead slows down, the Model 3 will brake and speed up again to maintain that speed.
Even though it’s fun to enjoy the quick acceleration, there’s sort of an ironic phenomenon that comes with owning a Tesla because I’ve found it to be a fun challenge to see if I can achieve better range efficiency than my previous drive.
In the Model 3 if you need to come to a complete stop while driving like at a red light for example, all you have to do is press the brake pedal until the “Hold” icon appears and then you can take your foot off the brake and the car will stay stopped.
When cruise control is enabled it keeps a steady speed even if you’re going up or down a steep hill, there’s no delay in acceleration compared to my old Pontiac.
It’s attractive while being fully electric with zero emissions, it’s quick yet quiet, it’s fast yet safe, it’s compact yet comfortable, it’s fun yet relaxing, it can travel over 300 miles on a single charge yet has a nationwide network of Supercharger stations for a quick charge when needed, and most of all: the Model 3 is the future, and it’s here now.
The Model 3 is like the flagship smartphone to the electric vehicle and autonomous car revolution, and once you experience it for yourself you may get a little sad and nostalgic for antiquated gasoline cars because they’ll soon be forgotten in the rear view mirror of what is the Tesla Model 3.

Tesla Model 3 Review: BEST Car I’ve Ever Driven
This is the big one. Or, rather, the small one: the Tesla Model 3, Tesla’s smallest car, is also its most important. Subscribe now: http://smarturl.it/autocar
Tasked with taking the Californian company into uncharted territory when it comes to sales volume, this Audi/BMW/Mercedes-rivalling sedan is based on a new architecture, has a 300+ mile range and an affordable price – from $35,000 in the US, before options (of which the big battery is one).
We head, then, to California to try it out, on roads that represent the narrower, more interesting Tarmac than America’s wide highways. Places where cars like the BMW 3-Series are design to excel. How does the Model 3 shape up against the world’s best executive cars?
