What is the difference between Tesla Model Y, and Model 3

The Company Tesla in March last year presented a car Model Y, the supply of buyers was launched on 13 March 2020, so it's time to consider what the difference is between the electric car Tesla Model Y, and Model 3, these models are the least expensive in the model range of the Tesla (formerly my colleague Ramis Model Y, and Model 3). But before that, let's actually figure out from what car is the range of the Tesla. Company : Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y. Have you ever wondered what the different all of these models? For example, I no. But now we'll figure it out. Model S — it is a luxury sedan, expensive large and fast. Model 3 — the cheapest model of the company, budget sedan, we can say «tramp-auto». Model X — it's a sophisticated crossover, the analogue of the BMW X5, and besides it is the most expensive in the lineup, but the Model Y, in my opinion, the most interesting version of — it is a crossover, which is the price comparable to the cheaper Model 3, but in all respects superior to it.

Why does Tesla have decided to release this model?

First, the company did not have a cheap crossover, and secondly, the world — and especially in the U.S. and in Russia — increasingly popular get the crossovers, and Model Y in this issue due to new technology and relatively low cost may be probably the most successful product Tesla.

Tesla Model X — so cool car that it is not afraid to use clips even Hollywood stars. Model Y — a budget version of the Model X, it makes the car even more cool, because it looks to the difference between X and Y, you'll hardly notice, unless of course the Model X will not open back door. They have it opened up, this mechanism is called «gull-wing».

Doors the Model X is called «wings of a Seagull». Let everyone think that you have a Model X, until you opened the doors of its Model Y

Tesla Model Y is both a family car and at the same time youth. How do they do it?

The advantages of the Tesla in the fact that they have special filters that allow you to activate a Mode ”protection against biological weapons”. In this mode, the car protects passengers from entering the cabin of viruses, bacteria, mold, and pollen. Thus, Tesla can easily move to Wuhan, which was the source of the coronavirus COVID-19, our colleagues wrote a detailed article about the new virus .

Before comparing the Model Y, and Model 3 it is necessary to understand one more thing. Tesla sells 3 versions of its cars.

  • Regular version
  • «Long Range» — version, which is characterized by increased mileage on a single charge, increased power and improved acceleration the

  • Perfomance version, she «Long Range» can be improved to better acceleration (used 2 times more engines than the standard model), power and reduced the distance that the car can travel on a single charge of the battery. Perfomance version can easily outrun the Ferrari and Lamborghini.

A Few words should be said about the engines. In the usual version uses a single motor and a single drive, whereas in the «Long Range» and «Performance» versions of two engines with all-wheel drive.

Features of the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y


Tesla Model 3

  • basic version — acceleration to 100 in 5.3 seconds, max speed 225 km/h, power reserve, 402 km
  • «Long Range» — version: zero to 100 in 4.4 seconds, top speed 233 km/h, power reserve of 518 km

    «Performance» — version: acceleration to 100 in 3.2 seconds, top speed 233 km/h, power reserve of 518 km


Tesla Model Y

  • basic version — will be available in spring 2021
  • «Long Range» — version: acceleration to 100 in 4.8 seconds, top speed 217 km/h, power reserve of 508 km

    «Performance» — version: acceleration to 100 in 3.5 seconds, top speed 233 km/h, power reserve 507 km

First and foremost, Model Y — it is a crossover, so its main difference lies in size. Model Y dimensions only slightly inferior to the Model X. However, it should be noted that the Model X costs about $ 100,000, while the "Long Range" — version of the Model Y can be bought for 53,000 dollars, version with increased power (Performance) would cost 61 000, which is also good.

The Model 3 is still the cheapest electric car company. On the official website of the car can be purchased for $ 40 000, meanwhile BMW 430i, which can be compared with Model 3, in USA is sold at a price of $ 44,000. Of course, the difference is small, and, probably, lovers of sports car will choose BMW, but Tesla — it's about technology. Competitor Model Y can be called the BMW X3, the devices have similar dimensions, but it is worth noting that the X3 is estimated at 42 thousand dollars, making it a more interesting option for those who wish to save. Recently our author and my colleague Artem Sutyagin wrote the material in which that electric cars have no future. This statementof course, ridiculous and funny. What do you think?

dimensions Model Y

Model Y — is a compact crossover. In size it is much larger sedan Model 3, and this despite the fact that it is built on the basis of Model 3 (75% of the components from these cars overall):

Comparison of dimensions Model Y, and Model 3

The Trunk of the car much more than those in the Model 3. to Yes, the electric car has no engine, and therefore the trunk two. Model Y offers a 1.5 cubic metres of Luggage space in comparison with 0.14 cubic meters Model 3. In Model Y, 3 rear seats, and now they can add another buttons inside the trunk, in Model 3 they are formed only through the handles on the rear seats. In addition, if Model 3 were formed in a ratio of 60/40 (two seats or one), in the case of Model Y, you can separately fold each seat, including the Central.

The seats in the Model Y is very similar to the ones used in Model 3, however, they are mounted on special racks, which makes the fit much higher. Legroom in Y for rear passengers has increased by 15% and the front by 2%. The distance above the head in the Model Y is almost the same as in Model 3 — the difference is 1-2%.

features of the Model Y

Model Y can offer its owners a panoramic roof for both front and rear passengers. In the new model the company has additionally placed the seal inside the lid the front of the hood so that water does not get into the front trunk. A car was blamed for the lack of additional mechanical handles of opening doors for the rear passengers if the car's battery sat. In Model Y the problem fixed — now all the passengers in an emergency situation, can open car doors.

In Model Y under the front screen is the wireless charging for the smartphone, which is not in Model 3. In addition, under the charging port located Type-A and Type-C, whereas in Model 3 it was only two ports Type-A. the Rear passengers instead of two ports Type-A received a two-port Type-C. Model Minus Y can be called the increased radius of rotation (in Model 3 — 11.8 metres in Y — 12.1 m).

interior Tesla Model Y — it's an iPhone in the car world.

A Few words should be said about the wheels. Model in Y they were significantly wider, this will allow the car better to stay on the road and enter the turns, while Model Y improved mileage on a single charge (up to 508 kilometers) in Model 3 the basic version is able to pass only 402 km (price 39000 USD). That, however, is also good. And probably it would be more correct to compare the Model Y «Long Range» — version of Model 3, which can travel on a single charge 518 kilometers and estimated at 49 thousand dollars. In this case, of course, Model 3 looks more attractive.

What to buy: a Tesla Model Y or Model 3?

Today, more and more consumers make a choice in favor of crossovers, because it was a convenient body type. A Y Model in comparison with Model 3 seem more appealing, it is something between a full-size crossover SUV and a regular sedan, and this is its advantage. It is quite compact, making it easy to navigate through narrow city streets, and, meanwhile, it is not so small and perfect for a large family. Model Y — the perfect car for practical people who want to be in trend and sometimes I like to go on nature. In Russia the Model Y may be the most successful Tesla due to the high clearance.

Tesla Model Y, though built on the basis of Model 3, which offers increased ground clearance, high land and much more space for passengers. This compact crossover, electric car supplies buyers started only in mid-March 2020
