Tesla Model Y revealed

The latest all-electric vehicle from the American firm is expected to be on the road by autumn 2020, with prices starting from around £29,000

Tesla has taken the covers off its new mid-sized SUV – the Model Y.

The American firm claims that the Model Y will have enough space for seven people ‘and their gear’, as well as being fitted with the same high level of tech as other vehicles in the Tesla range.

That means hardware for future autonomous driving, a huge 15-inch infotainment central touchscreen to control all the Model Y’s features and impressive safety technology to keep you on the straight and narrow.

Designed to be the safest mid-size SUV around, the Model Y comes with large crumple zones and a rigid structure – while the sleek body design is meant to aid efficiency and maximise the electric range.

Tesla will provide Model Y customers with four different variants – Standard Range, Long Range, Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive and Performance – with the entry option offering a 230-mile range. The Long Range option is claimed to have 300 miles available from a single charge.

Inside, the Model Y comes with a panoramic glass roof for a light and airy cabin, while higher seating will allow for a better view of the road ahead.
