The Tesla Model Y Five-seater was released in March last year and deliveries to US customers started in March 2020. However, the 7 seater Tesla Model Y is set to start deliveries sometime in the last quarter of this year from the latest car news according to Elon Musk’s confirmation via Twitter. 

Tesla has confirmed that the Tesla Model Y will have the option to add an additional row of seats to accommodate 7 adults despite this electric car model being inspired by the Tesla Model 3 platform, which is smaller. However, it still has a compact SUV feel to it which is quite popular nowadays. It is still unclear from Tesla news whether there will be two seats on the third row or have the seats backwards-facing in this new Electric small SUV.



Tesla Model Y Interior and Car Features:

In the Tesla Model Y  the driver gets to enjoy an elevated seating position and a low dash, which gives a commanding view of the road ahead. Moreover, the Model Y interior is neat and simple, with a 15-inch touch screen, impressive sound system and an extensive glass roof which gives more headroom and provides a seamless view of the sky. 



The Tesla Model Y comes with emergency braking, collision warning, blind-spot monitoring and more. It will also have Full Self-Driving capability (cheers to the lazy!), enabling automatic driving on city streets and highways pending regulatory approval, as well as the ability to come find you anywhere in a parking lot- useful for those with poor memory of where they parked!



Tesla Model Y Power:

The Tesla Model Y all electric vehicle (EV SUV) is All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with two independent electric motors controlling torque in the front and rear wheels to ensure better handling, traction and stability control. It is a highly capable small SUV that can handle itself in rain, mud, snow and even off-roading. As is typical with electric cars, acceleration is fast and can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds with a maximum range of up to 505km.

What To Ride can’t wait to meet the Tesla Model Y even though we are unsure when it will grace us Down Under. However, a car that can drive itself is a car we’d love to see!
