Tesla Model Y Long Autonomy: up to 533 km of autonomy
The Tesla Model Y electric SUV is available in two versions with Dual Motor all-wheel drive :
the Great Autonomy.
Let's take a look at the first one first!
If you go for the Model Y Grande Autonomie charged for 64,990 euros, the autonomy reaches 533 km according to the WLTP cycle thanks to a lithium-ion battery whose capacity is 72.5 kWh. To communicate such autonomy, brand of Elon Musk has followed the WLTP protocol which includes a series of tests on several types of roads. As a result, the figure announced by Tesla is intended to be close to reality., but note that depending on the weather conditions, the weight of the car, the route is taken or the driving speed, the range may be less or more than 533 km. In any case, the Tesla Models display greater autonomy than the majority of their competitors. Enough to allow you to make long journeys without worrying too much about the lack of energy. In addition, you can always use the brand's Supercharger network, which allows fast charging to fill up in less than an hour!
Tesla Model Y Performance: 514 km of autonomy
Do you want to get behind the wheel of an SUV with top-flight driving performance? The Performance version of the Tesla Model Y will satisfy your desires! Indeed, the maximum speed climbs to 250 km / h, while the 0 to 100 km / h is established in just 3.7 seconds. It will nevertheless be necessary to pay 69,990 euros for this variation, or 4,000 euros more than the Tesla Model Y Grande Autonomie. It still has a Dual Motor transmission, as well as a 72.5 kWh battery, but this time the range is slightly lower and then reaches 514 km according to the American manufacturer's website. This is obviously still very valuable, but keep in mind that in real use, you will not necessarily travel as many kilometers on a single charge, especially if you plan to take the motorway frequently. Indeed, on this type of journey, consumption is generally higher, regardless of the electric car you own.
The main thing to remember
What Tesla offers in terms of autonomy is stunning and we have once again proven it with the Model Y compact SUV, whose deliveries also began in August 2021 in France. If it is towards this Model that you are turning, you will be happy to learn that the waiting times are not as long as with the Model 3 sedan since, on its site, Tesla indicates a delivery scheduled for August 2022, no matter which version you choose. On the other hand, you will not be able to benefit from the ecological bonus, the purchase price exceeding 60,000 euros.
