So, let me tell you guys, I have been planning to do a Tesla review for a very long time. For a while, I wanted to do a Tesla Model 3 review because I thought that Tesla Model 3 Long Range was the Ultimate Survival Vehicle, because it was fast, easy to handle, safest car in the world, best electric car ever made in my opinion… you get the point. Until I got into this Tesla Model Y 2020 Long Range.
Doing this 2020 Tesla Model Y review I tried to concentrate on practicality… What is the most practical car to buy? Is it the one with the most space? Easy to handle? Fancy features? Comfort? Or is it all of the above. I think this long range Tesla combines all of the above very well.
Then there is the safety. We all hear of Tesla Model 3 safety rating… it is perfect! Tesla Model Y safety rating is not available yet, but because it is so similar to Model 3, I expect nothing less.
Then there is this beautiful Tesla Model Y interior. It is simplistic, it is modest, it is spacious. To me, this is the best car interior. Nothing distracts you… except of course for this huge Tesla touch screen… which takes some time to get used to, yes.
Don’t forget about the Tesla Model Y autopilot… Yes, a self driving car. Now self driving Tesla is not exactly 100% self driving just yet, because there are a few regulations that Tesla needs to address… But it is definitely happening soon! Yes, Tesla full self driving is coming and soon you will be able to navigate on autopilot. Tesla Model Y is already equipped with the hardware that is needed to make this a Tesla self driving car. The software is there too, although it is still in beta. Now you can have the Advanced Autopilot for an extra $8000 (Tesla autopilot price). But if you want to learn more about Tesla autopilot vs full self driving, I mention the differences in detail in the video. Tesla full self driving upgrade is available after purchase too, for a little bit more $.
Now price. I think for all the features that you get in this 2020 Tesla Model Y Long Range, the price is great! Compare it other similar crossovers, like BMW X4 or Cadillac XT4 for example… that do not even have similar awesome features… Compare it to the first Tesla then. 2019 Tesla Model S MSRP is $75,000. So, Tesla were able to make a crossover, for $25,000 less! That is pretty impressive. There is also the 2020 Tesla Model 3 MSRP, which is only $35,000. But I think that you are getting so much more with a crossover.
I think it is worth mentioning that this 2020 Tesla Model Y made it to the top of plenty online lists like best luxury cars 2020, best luxury commuter car, best luxury crossover SUV 2020, best luxury compact SUV 2020, best electric cars 2020 USA and plenty more!
So, what do you guys think about this 2020 Tesla Model Y Long Range review? Do you think it is the Ultimate Survival Vehicle? Do you have any suggestions? I will be happy to hear them, just drop them in the comments below. As always, thanks for watching!
