The 2020 Tesla Model Y is a perfectly positioned electric crossover that marks the future of the automotive industry. Starting at $48,000, the Model Y is smaller than the seven-seat Model X SUV, seamlessly filling in the compact SUV gap in the automaker’s line-up.
It’s an intelligent, innovative vehicle that is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.
Powered by Performance
The Model Y’s innovative technology is a benchmark that contenders will certainly have to overcome. Drivers can effortlessly enter and start their Model Y with a simple touch of their smartphone. Once powered up, this electric SUV feels more like a luxury performance model than a simple daily driver. This is due to the snappy dual axle-mounted electric motors that churn out an amazing 384 ponies and a hefty 376 lb.-ft. of torque, enabling the Model Y to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just under five seconds and travel up to 310 miles on just one charge. These specifications squash the Audi e-tron, with a 204-mile range, as well as the Jaguar I-Pace, with a top range of 234 miles. Not to mention the Model Y’s 3,500-pound towing rating, which is a first in this vehicle category.
Forward-Thinking Safety and Security
For savvy car shoppers who put safety and security first, the Tesla Model Y is brimming with cutting-edge security features. All models come equipped with the Tesla Autopilot hardware, which includes radar, eight cameras, and 12 ultrasonic sensors, in addition to all of the associated active safety features, including blind spot monitoring, collision warning, and emergency brake.
Drivers can opt to upgrade to the Full Self-Driving capability, which enables autonomous driving on highways and streets. It also enables the Model Y to find its lost driver in a parking lot by itself.
When you purchase a Tesla Model Y, you’re getting far more than just an ordinary vehicle. You’re getting VIP access to a global proprietary supercharging infrastructure and an ongoing supply of over-the-air software updates with awesome new features.
Some of these features include:
- Web navigation
- An energy application that reports past, present, and projected consumption
- Atari games
- Calendar application
- And more
When drivers take a seat in the cabin, they are greeted with a massive 15-inch by 10-inch landscape capacitive touchscreen that controls all of the vehicle systems, with the exception of wipers, volume, and signals.
Superior Tech to All Other SUVs
The Tesla Model Y is truly in a class of its own. With a pioneering EV motor, superior safety features, and the ability to tap into a world of cutting-edge technology, this SUV is light-years ahead of the competition and setting the foundation for the future.
