Tesla launches New Model Y

Tesla is introducing Model Y today with a new Standard Range RWD variant and a new 3rd row 7-seat option. It’s taking the simple price of the electric SUV down to just $42,000.

Tesla has been selling and shipping Model Y for almost a year now, but the purchasers have been limited to just two options:
-Tesla Model Y Long Range Dual Engine
-Tesla Model Y Performance
It resulted in the model Y beginning at $50,000 in advance of bonuses in the US.

Tesla is now offering new options for the first time since its debut back in March 2020.

Today, Tesla has modified the Model Y Online Configurator to include a new Standard Range RWD option: Model Y is now starting at $42,000 – only a few thousand more than Model 3, which is still Tesla’s cheapest car. Tesla says deliveries of the latest version of the vehicle will commence in the US in 2 to 5 weeks.

As you can see from the initial Model Y launch in the image above, Tesla was only targeting a range of 230 miles. Now Tesla is actually releasing the vehicle considering Musk’s previous statement and mentioning the EPA forecast of 244 miles (392 km) for the current Model Y Standard Range RWD.

With an upgrade to the Model Y online design lab, Tesla also unlocked orders for the 7-seater third-row option. The choice costs $3,000 and seems to be available on all models of the electric SUV except the Performance edition.

Tesla confirms the changes that come with the 7-seat option:

  • Third row seating for two
  • Easy Entry into third row
  • Third row USB-C charging
  • Sliding second row with adjustable seatbacks
  • Fold-flat second and third rows for maximum cargo storage
  • Electronic fold-flat releases in trunk
