Due to the rising popularity of compact SUVs, it’s no surprise that the Model Y is Tesla’s latest car to join their impressive line-up. As Elon Musk puts it, the Model Y has ‘the functionality of an SUV but rides like a sports car”.
This all-electric compact SUV is set to arrive in the UK by 2022, with prices starting from around £35,500.
Looking at the exterior, we can see similarities from the Model 3 and Model X combined. In fact, inside, the majority of the Model Y’s interior is lifted from the Model 3, with a 15” touch screen and all-glass roof. This is no surprise, as Musk had previously stated the Model Y would share 75% of its components with the Model 3.
In the UK, it appears the Model Y will be available in two variants – the Long Range AWD and the Performance. The Long Range model will offer 314 miles of range, a top speed of 135mph and a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds. The Performance model is set to offer 298 miles of range, a top speed of 150mph and a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds. This model is expected to go on sale for around £45,000 as opposed to the Long Range model’s £35,500 price tag.

Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
