There will be three versions of the Tesla Model Y when it arrives on the market in late 2020.
UPDATE: Tesla increased the price of the Tesla Model Y by $1,000 on every version on March 25th. The starting price is now $65,000.
The Tesla Model Y is based heavily on the Tesla Model 3 as we all expected. It will, however, have more interior space and will also be slightly more expensive. Let’s take a closer look at pricing info for the new Model Y.
Three Versions of the Tesla Model Y: One RWD and Two AWD Models.
The most affordable model at launch will be the rear-wheel drive Tesla Model Y Long-Range. It will start at $64,000 and will offer 483 kilometers of range.
There will be a few options available including AutoPilot ($4,000) and Full Self-Driving Capability. The latter offers Autopark, Summon (your car comes to you in a parking lot), automatic driving in the city, and traffic light response. This is available starting at $6,600. You obviously need AutoPilot first which means a fully self-driving Tesla Model Y will start at $74,600.
Tesla Model Y AWD Priced at $69,000
All-wheel drive versions of the Tesla Model Y will start at $69,000 and will have the same options as the RWD Model Y. With AWD, the Model Y will have 451 kilometers of range and reach 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
The Performance version has the same range, but requires only 3.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h. It starts at $81,000 and again, the same options are available at the same price.
The Tesla Model Y will offer an optional third row of seats starting in 2021 on all of its models. It will be priced at $4,000.
A More Affordable Tesla Model Y
For now, the three models above are those that are available to order. Starting in 2021 a new, more affordable version of the Tesla Model Y will be on sale for $39,000 in the US. That’s about $4,000 more than the most affordable Tesla Model 3 which means that in Canada, we can expect this version to start at about $47,000.
