New 2023 Tesla Model Y will hit the dealerships later in 2022. This all-electric SUV will gain a couple of improvements. Based on what people say, the new model will look different, and it could also provide a slightly lower electric driving range.
Other than that, this SUV is also known for having a futuristic cabin that can seat up to seven people. People who buy the Long-Range model can get the 3rd row of seats, but only if they want to pay extra. Without further ado, let’s check all the important details for the 2023MY.
Tesla Model Y Exterior Facelift
The styling of the new 2023 Tesla Model Y looks very much like the Model 3. From what we know, this SUV will once again offer sharp body lines, very modern wheels, and the same sloping roofline. This model’s design will look a little different depending on what kind of trim level you opt for.
You can make your Model Y SUV look more sporty, for example, by lowering the suspension and adding bigger wheels and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. There will still be no change in the size of Tesla’s Model Y. The platform remains, but we expect to see new exterior colors and maybe new optional packages.
The cabin of the next 2023 Tesla Model Y won’t be very different from the one we have now. This SUV still has a sleek look, and it has the same high-quality leather materials as before. The seats are very supportive, so the comfort is admirable. There will be room for seven passengers at max. Furthermore, Tesla provides a really quiet interior so the ride is very enjoyable.
As we said, you can get a third row of seats if you buy the Long-Range model. The seats behind them are very tight. The maximum amount of space in the back when the seats are folded is slightly below 70 cubic feet. On the technology side, this crossover SUV has a 15-inch infotainment system and an upgraded infotainment system.
An all-wheel drive is an option on the new 2023 Tesla Model Y model, which will be powered by two electric motors. This time, the Long-Range model will have a range of 314 miles and a 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds. However, this is actually a downgrade as the current Model Y provides 318 miles of range. We don’t know what’s the reason behind this, but it is a really minor downgrade.
There is also a Performance model that cuts the vehicle’s range to 303 miles. On the other hand, it has better acceleration, which makes it go from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds. It’s also worth noting that the Long-Range model can make 447 horsepower, while the Performance model can make 580 horsepower.
2023 Tesla Model Y Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2023 Tesla Model Y model will go on sale in the second half of the year. Reportedly, the Long Range model will start at $61,000 and the Performance variant will cost around $65,000. With the Rivian R1S SUV coming out, it will be interesting to see which model will gain more popularity.
