Introduction

What's New

One year removed from its introduction, the 100% electric 2021 Tesla Model Y gains a rear-wheel-drive variant to the Long-Range line. Also, a 7-seat layout debuts.

Note that Tesla sometimes tweaks its lineup over the course of a year when it comes to both features and pricing. Specs presented here are as of March of 2021.

Choosing Your Tesla Model Y

Tesla offers the Model Y SUV in two trims: Long Range AWD and Performance AWD. Prices start at $51,190 and reach $62,190. A third trim, Long Range RWD arrives later.

Note that Tesla EVs are no longer eligible for a federal tax credit but may qualify for state & local incentives like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate and Clean Fuel Reward.

Engine Choices

Instead of engines, Tesla utilizes electric motors in the Model Y. Power travels to the wheels by means of a single-speed direct-drive transmission. Performance specs for the new rear-wheel-drive model are pending.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy
Long Range AWD384 hp376 lb-ft125 MPGe
Performance AWD456 hp497+ lb-ft111 MPGe

The standard Long Range model has a 326-mile range, while the Performance model has a 303-mile range. The Model Y has a 3,500-pound towing capacity, but it comes at a significant reduction in range when utilized. You’ll pay an additional $1,000 to acquire a tow hitch.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Model Y seats five in its standard two-row layout. An optional third-row gives makes this SUV a 7-passenger model.

Upfront, a small trunk (also known as a frunk) combines with the rear trunk to deliver 68 cubic feet of cargo space and that’s more than the Audi e-Tron.

Safety Features

All Model Y trims come with a long list of standard safety features including automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning. The available AutoPilot package includes adaptive cruise control.

A Full Self-Driving Capability Package ($10,000) still requires drivers to maintain their attention and keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times. This package bundles auto lane change, Autopark, navigate on AutoPilot, a full self-driving computer, traffic light and stop sign control, and vehicle summon. Autosteer arrives later in the model year.

The Tesla Model Y garnered a top 5-star rating from the NHTSA. It hasn’t been tested yet by the IIHS, but the similar Tesla Model 3 earned a stellar Top Safety Pick+ rating.

Connectivity

A huge 15-inch touch-screen display dominates the interior and serves as the “nerve center” for the vehicle. Besides controlling the HVAC system and displaying instrument cluster information, the screen supplies compatibility for video streaming, an internet browser, and "Car-aoke."

Oddly, there is no smartphone compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but there are four standard USB ports. This vehicle comes with a 14-speaker audio system.

Long Range AWD – From $51,190

LED lighting, fog lamps, 19-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, and a power liftgate highlight the Tesla Model Y’s standard exterior features. Inside, the seats are covered in imitation leather with heated and power-controlled front seats, a power-controlled tilt-and-telescopic steering column, dual-zone climate control, and ambient lighting included.

A 7-Seat Interior Package ($3,000) adds a third row for two, a USB-C charging port, a sliding second-row seat with adjustable seatbacks, fold-flat second- and third-row seats, and electronic fold-flat releases.

Performance – From $62,190

The Performance Edition optimizes power as it utilizes the front and rear wheels to motivate this SUV. This model features 21-inch wheels and upgraded exterior lighting.

Inside, the Performance trim dresses the seats in premium materials and adds aluminum and genuine wood accents.

CarsDirect Tip

Wait a few months and the lower-cost Long-Range model with standard rear-wheel drive rolls out. We don’t have pricing available yet, but it’ll lower your Model Y acquisition cost somewhat. Keep in mind that Tesla models no longer qualify for the federal tax incentive. That said, states such as California can reduce your final cost by thousands of dollars.
