Overview 2024 Tesla Model Y

The 2024 Model Y is a compact manufactured by the famous American electric car company, Tesla. The Model Y itself has been a great success for Tesla. It was one of the very first fully electric compact crossovers to hit the market. The vehicle is also basically the standard used to assess all other entrants in this segment, and for good reasons.

The Model Y is spacious and relatively comfy. It is also packed with a lot of power and range, as well as many technology features, just like what the futuristic CEO loves most. Even though the vehicle becomes the current benchmark in its class, competitors from other leading auto manufacturers are catching up fast.

It is probably due to this reason that Tesla plans to update the Model Y for 2024. Even though it is just all rumour at this point, many predict new or revised features, and updated styling for both interior and exterior. However, car lovers need to remember that Tesla doesn't like to stick to strict calendar years when it comes to releasing updates.

Any updates could just happen in 2023 if they come. The updates will likely help the popular automaker to secure the Model Y's dominant sales lead, but smart electric vehicles (EV) buyers will still pay close attention to Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ford Mustang Mach-E, as well as new entries like the Chevrolet Blazer EV.

What is Probably on the Way?

Buyers can expect the new Tesla Model Y with minor changes to the exterior design similar to what the automaker has done with the Model X in the years since it was launched. Anticipate other changes that may include what the Model X and Model S got for 2021 including interior improvements, a higher performance plaid variant, yoke steering wheel, and more ranges.

Beyond that, Tesla also aims to streamline production any further to cut costs. Hopefully, buyers never find the use case for redundancies eliminated to save cash and their fingers are skeptically crossed that the savings will be passed on to the buyers not just the shareholders.

Design and Interior

The will probably just a little update in the exterior. The previous model's image show that the newest Tesla EV will have wheels and bumpers with a new design. When it comes to the visual, it has the same changes on the exterior. Like at this point, besides a larger body, fender flares make an obvious difference that makes it distinctive from the sedan.

As the visual sign, rendering also includes a curvy cut out in an L shape located on the sides of the front bumper. For the interior, the new Tesla Model Y perhaps has a dashboard with an updated design and a swivelling touchscreen infotainment system that is not available in the existing model. The company may involve an instrument cluster with the update, introduce a steering yoke option, and improve the materials' quality.

Tesla reportedly makes a plan to put wood trim to an end in the Model 3. But there is a refresh in 2023, and the company probably does the same with the new Model Y. The interior of the new SUV comes in black and black-white colour schemes and suggests wood trim in a dark option that looks sportier.

Wood trim probably looks suitable for the two-tone colour scheme, but it looks slightly weird in a cabin that is all black. As a replacement, Tesla may introduce Alcantara or other premium artificial materials. ABS bonded foam non-woven fabric that Tesla informant said on this Twitter is coming to the Model 3, is also another possibility.

The current Model Y's cabin is massive, with plenty of legroom and headroom for all passengers. Getting in and out of the car is easy thanks to the wide-opening doors, low step-over height, and tall roof. The SUV's available third-row seat is cramped but you can add seven-passenger capability.

Speed

Big fans of the Model Y Performance called the vehicle the most convincing American luxury SUV. It does not mean that the standard Long Range is not good enough, but the speed is not that impressive, especially compared to the Model Y Performance.

For the new Model Y, Tesla will probably introduce an even more athletic variant in line with the Model X Plain to beat the competitors, such as Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, Genesis GV60 Performance, and Kia EV6 GT.

Engine

The Tesla Model Y comes with a dual-motor drivetrain. The All-Wheel Drive (AWD) long range offers 220 miles of range and the performance model's estimated range drops to 303 miles. But the Performance Model features 20-inch wheels, a special track mode, faster acceleration, higher top speed of 155 mph, and lowered suspension.

The EPA estimates the long range model to be good for 131 MPGe in the city and 117 MPGe on the highway, while the Performance model estimates fuel economy estimates 115/106  MPGe highway/city.

Specifications

According to Tesla Tech Central, the upcoming 2024 Model Y may feature significant changes to its specifications compared to the current model. The main highlight is a new battery architecture that allows for an outstanding range of 400 miles. Specifically, there are sayings of a potential charging input of 350 kW, which can be achieved with a higher voltage of 800 volts.

Moreover, improvements to the suspension system will boost the electric SUV's ability to handle street imperfections. Many also expect an upgraded powertrain. These rumours show appealing advancements for the upcoming Tesla Model Y. The current Model Y is available in 3 dual-motor AWD variants, which are Performance, Long Range, and Standard models.

The standard model recently has just widely been available. Reports say that this is the model that has the new structural battery pack with the new 4680 cells. The standard model gives much lower EPA estimates range of 279 miles and it is slower as well, but not by a big margin, taking 5.0 seconds for a 0-60 mph sprint.
The good side is that it is just as efficient as the long range model, with an EPA estimated energy consumption rating of 28 kWh/100mi, and USD 3,000 more affordable as well. The base model has a top speed of 135 mph. The long range model can deliver an EPA estimate range of up to 330 miles, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph within 4.8 seconds, as well as achieve a top speed of 135 mph.

Safety

Tesla got a nice opportunity of maintaining the pre-2024 Model Y's coveted label of IIHS Top Safety Pick, which it should if it scores well on the institute's updated side crash test joining TSP criteria for 2023. A number of driver assistance features will likely keep being standard while the irresponsibly named and inconsistent Full Self Driving features will cost extra cash.

As you know, Tesla is famous for its highly top-notch autopilot semi-autonomous driving system. And the 2024 Tesla Model Y comes standard with this feature. Advanced features like the Summon feature and self-parking feature are optional. The main safety features of the upcoming Model Y include semi-autonomous driving mode, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.

Technology

The current Model Y has impressed car lovers at its launching with its 15.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that the company may carry over through the 2024 update for the upcoming model. However, there is a possibility that Tesla will simplify production to cut costs by dropping the existing display and instead featuring the Model Y with the 17.0-inch display from the Model X and Model S.

The upcoming electric SUV could even achieve the flagship models' AMD chipset that allow console level gaming.

Storage

The cargo space of the outgoing Model Y is spacious. The rear seats do not fold entirely flat, but there is a wide opening as well as easy load-in height. The removable cargo floor provides even more rear storage underneath. The centre console has a sliding bin cover and savvy smartphone charging spaces.

Child safety seat accommodation is average for an SUV of this size. There is enough space for the biggest of child seats. However, the lower car seat anchors have small access points and are difficult to loop through. The top tether points are on the lower side of the rear seats and can be a struggle to reach.

Pricing and Release Date

Back in April this year, the Model Y received a $3,000 price cut across the range. Then, the prices went up by $500 across the range. Following these 2 current revisions, the prices sit at $47,490 in the standard range model, $50, 490 in the Long Range model, and $54,490 in the Performance.

With the facelift, buyers should not expect that there will be a significant price decrease, at least not by a large margin. It is reported that Tesla aims to start producing the upcoming Model Y in 2024. Customers deliveries should start the same year. The current Model Y was the best-selling car in the world in Q1 2023, with 267,200 deliveries registered during the three-month period.

Therefore, it is expected that the upcoming SUV to be in a global, robust demand right after it will be launched. When it comes to pricing, it is estimated that the new Model Y will be priced at $47,000.

Those are the aspects and features that you can expect from the highly anticipated 2024 Tesla Model Y.
