Tesla has reintroduced the Standard Range AWD Model Y to the model lineup. A report reveals that the car is priced at $64,000, equipped with 4680 battery packs, and offers 269 miles of range, a 135 mph top speed, and a 0-60 mph time of five seconds.
The Model Y Long Range starts at $58,190 and offers 330 miles of range, a 135 mph top speed, and a 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds. The Model Y Performance sells for $62,190 and offers a range of 303 miles, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds.
Earlier this year, we reported that Tesla could be bringing out a cheaper version of the Model Y that would drop the price to $61,990. People tracking code changes on Tesla's website have spotted what could be an AWD 279-mile version with a price tag of $61,990.
Surely at that price, it makes sense to go for either the Long Range or Performance model, considering the substantial gains in range. This new configuration features Tesla's new 4680 cylindrical battery cells and structural battery pack technology. This news comes as Tesla announced a production ramp-up of 1,000 cars per week.
Elon Musk has touted the Tesla Model Y as being the future best-selling car in the world, but the Model Y is yet to get there. In the meantime, Tesla has been trying all sorts of tricks to make the Model Y more attractive to customers, including price reductions on current models and rumors of a cheaper entry-level model.
The screenshot lists the car as a Model Y All-Wheel Drive with a range estimate of 269 miles, a 135 mph top speed, and a 0-60 mph time of five seconds. It also lists some of the car's features, which include a Pearl White paint job, 20-inch induction wheels, an all-black premium interior with five seats, Autopilot, and a 30-day Premium Connectivity Trial.
