Model Y is an all-electric, mid-size SUV. Model Y will start at $39,000 (USA) for the Standard Range version, and will also come in Long Range, Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive, and Performance variants.

Model Y is spacious enough to carry seven adults and their gear. The high-efficiency powertrain and responsive motors will provide 0-60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration in as little as 3,5 seconds and a top speed of up to 150 mph (240 km/h), with excellent handling for any road condition. Model Y Standard Battery will have 230 miles (370 km) of range, while Model Y Long Range will be able to travel up to 300 miles (480 km) on a single charge.

Inside, Model Y's panoramic glass roof and high seating creates a feeling of spaciousness and offers an expansive view from every seat in the vehicle. The front trunk and split-folding second-row seats provide a total of 66 cubic feet (1.9 cubic meters) of storage space. Like Model 3, Model Y requires no keys, but instead connects to your smartphone for entry and exit, with a single 15-inch touchscreen interface inside for all of the car's controls. Model Y also connects with the Tesla Mobile app for features like remote unlock, Summon, remote pre-conditioning, location tracking, Speed Limit Mode, and more.

Model Y is built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, the low center of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide needed protection. Its design and battery technology also make it efficient in terms of energy usage, meaning you can achieve better range with less energy. Model Y is also compatible with Tesla's current Supercharger network of more than 12.000 Superchargers in 36 countries, as well as new V3 Superchargers which can charge at rates up to 1.000 miles per hour.

Deliveries are expected to begin in Fall 2020 for Model Y Performance, Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive, and Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive variants, and Spring 2021 for the $39,000 Model Y Standard Range (USA).
