2021 Tesla Model Y SR Quick Review: It’s Enough to Make You A Believer

Tesla did offer a Standard Range Model Y in the past however it was only available with a single motor configuration. The reason behind this layout was that, with two motors, the range would fall below Tesla’s requirements. With the new structural battery packs and 4680 cells, the range dilemma must be solved.

The current Long Range AWD Model Y offers 330 miles or 531 km of range on a full charge. The new Standard Range AWD is said to offer up to 279 miles or 449 km of range.

At the moment, the expected Model Y Standard Range AWD has yet to be added to Tesla’s website, as noted by Drive Tesla Canada, it should become available in a few short weeks. Also, Canadian pricing remains unknown however it should slot between $76,000 and $78,000.
