What We Bought And Why

by Carlos Lago, Feature Content

Our test vehicle: 2020 Tesla Model Y Long Range All-Wheel Drive Performance
Base MSRP: $61,125
MSRP as tested: $68,700
What we paid: $68,700

Our 2017 Tesla Model 3 Long Range had a rocky start. At one point we had so many problems that we dedicated a channel in Slack to it just to document it all. But then last year, we named the 2020 model our Top Rated Electric Car. Clearly, things can improve.

So when Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the Tesla Model Y, which essentially appeared to be an SUV version of the Model 3, we paid close attention. We also put a pre-order in as soon as the website would accept it. The Tesla Model 3 is great. Wouldn't one with a larger interior and more cargo space be an even better electric vehicle? Buying a Model Y was the best way to find out.

What Did We Get?
After owning two single-motor and rear-wheel-drive Tesla Model 3s back to back, we decided to go big with our Model Y. Doing so meant ordering the All-Wheel Drive Performance trim, as it's described on our sales documents. When we ordered it, this trim level had a starting price of $61,125 (including destination), though Tesla Model Y prices have changed since we placed our pre-order in March 2019.

We also selected the Model Y's no-cost Performance Upgrade that adds 21-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, a lower suspension and the all-important aluminum alloy pedals. This upgrade drops Tesla's range estimate from 315 miles to 280 miles, but it increases the top speed from 145 mph to 155 mph. The 0-60 mph claim of 3.5 seconds is unaffected.

All the previous Teslas we've owned have muted exterior colors (including our Signature Red Model X), so for the Model Y we went with the Red Multi-Coat paint ($2,500 at the time of our order). It's the fastest color there is, OK? And judging by everyone's reactions so far, this was the right color choice.

Lastly, we went one step above Autopilot and checked the box for Full Self-Driving Capability ($5,000 at the time of our order). Whether this capability will actually be realized during our ownership of the Model Y is a subject of much discussion (and a fair amount of eye-rolling), but we wanted to be ready just in case.

Why Did We Get It?
After owning a Model S, a Model X and two Model 3s, it seems silly to stop now. (We also have a Cybertruck on order.) In all seriousness, Tesla continues to provide one of the most fascinating vehicle ownership experiences out there, electric car or otherwise, and the Tesla Model Y represents an even stronger mainstream offering than the Model 3. With that in mind, we want to see how well it measures up to daily life with our staff. We're also interested in assessing build quality, which has been an issue with the majority of Teslas we've owned. Lastly, the Model Y is a small luxury SUV that Tesla says can do 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 155 mph. What's not to like?

Edmunds purchased this vehicle for the purpose of evaluation.


2020 Tesla Model Y: Real-World Fuel Economy

Nearly a year into our ownership of the Model Y and we're not close to the EPA estimated 30 kWh for combined driving. Remember, a lower number is better, when it comes to electric vehicle fuel economy figures. We've only beat the EPA eatimate on a handful of occasions. We'll chalk this up to the lead feet on staff, as our Performance model has gone through a number of drag tests and spirited driving.

Average lifetime consumption (kWh/100 miles): 41.7
EPA rating (kWh/100 miles): 30 combined (29 city, 32 highway)
Best consumption (kWh/100): 27.9
Best range: 242.8
Average range: 103.4
Current odometer: 9,171

Logbook Highlights

Tesla's proprietary DC fast charging network — aka, the Supercharger network — is a huge advantage for driving long distances. It's far and away the most convenient system in my experience. First of all, there are way more charging locations than what other 3rd party charging networks (such as Electrify America) currently have. These locations are all nicely integrated into a Tesla's onboard navigation system, too. To use a Supercharger, you simply back into the space, connect the charger cable and let it do its work. You don't have to fiddle with a charging unit touchscreen, a mobile app or anything else. The per kWh charges for electricity are reasonably priced and are automatically applied to a credit card that you keep on file. Tesla also does a better job of building its stations near convenient locations with shopping and bathrooms. — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content

Logbook Highlights

"We had a front tire go flat on us recently. Luckily, I was at home when I noticed it. The culprit was a nail stuck in the tread of the tire. I called Tesla's roadside service and they gave me a two options: Get towed to the Tesla service center, where they'd provide a "loaner wheel" while they repaired our actual wheel. This option would get me back on the road that same day. Or wait for the following day, when there was an opening for Tesla's tire repair service. The latter seemed more convenient and I didn't have anywhere important to go that day, so I opted for the mobile repair service.

Tesla gave us a three hour window and the repair main arrived on time. He drove a Ford cargo van that was practically a tire shop on the inside. It was fully stocked with all the tools needed to repair and mount a tire.

Lucky for us the puncture was repairable. The Tesla repairman was able to patch it and our Model Y was drivable within the hour. The repair fee was $78, which is pretty good, considering we never had to go anywhere.

If it had needed a new tire, we called America's Tire for comparison and the cost was going to be around the $350 range plus labor. Tesla's roadside price would be comparable, but we'd have the convenience of having them come to us. It was a good experience overall." — Ron Montoya, senior consumer advice editor


2020 Tesla Model Y: Performance

We bought the "Performance" trim to see how fast modern day Teslas have become. Is it worth the $8,000 upgrade?

Logbook Highlights

"It's crazy to me that our Model Y offers such a high mix of performance, utility and efficiency. As for the performance part, just check out our recent videos. First, we drag raced it against Germany's best small super sport SUVs, the BMW X3 M and Mercedes AMG GLC 63. Then we raced it against the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. It effectively tied them all in our official instrumented testing, ripping from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and clearing the quarter mile in 11.7 seconds. Yet from a "just floor it and go" standpoint, the Y is the clear winner." — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content

"Driving the Hyundai Nexo for a week gave me pause. It made me think "If hydrogen were more easily available, would electric cars like the Model Y be much less popular?" The Nexo is Hyundai's new hydrogen fuel-cell SUV. It's a bit of an odd duck (it's the only hydrogen SUV currently available) but it's really well-built and it's excellent to drive. Then, as that train of thought left the station, I thought "Well, why not drive the Model Y and see which one you like more, regardless of fuel availability?" So, I did. Tuesday I drove the Nexo on our 120-mile evaluation loop, then, Wednesday, I hoped in our Model Y and drove the same loop. I like them both, they're both good in their own ways, but the Nexo is much more user friendly. It's quieter, more comfortable, has more features for the money and it has much nicer seats. The Model Y is sexy to look at and it's remarkably quick, but it's not the daily driver I'd choose." — Travis Langness, reviews editor

"Like with all powerful Teslas, the acceleration is hilarious. Stomp on that go pedal and the resulting thrust pins your head back to the head rest. The effect makes me laugh just about as much as the on-board whoopee cushion.

Steering and handling are likewise impressive for a compact SUV. Like all EVs built this way, keeping all that mass nice and low returns enjoyable handling to the driver.

Combine the acceleration with the handling and our Model Y ends up being very quick on mountain roads. Such that part of the fun is the contrast between what you're understanding of an SUV is and how fast you're actually going." — Carlos Lago, manager, feature content



2020 Tesla Model Y: Comfort

A performance SUV must be fast, but also comfortable. Does the Model Y hit both targets?

Logbook Highlights

"Is the ride quality of our Model Y stiff? Yes. But is it uncomfortably stiff? The answer to that depends on what your expectations are. If you think about it in broad luxury SUV terms, then yes, our Y's ride is rough and jittery. But what about from a performance SUV standpoint? This is where I can easily justify it. After all, our Y is responsive and impressively hunkers down when you're driving around turns. If I bought a Model Y Performance — knowing that I wanted performance out of it — I wouldn't mind the ride quality at all." — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content

"While driving home from the Edmunds' test track, I was attempting to roll up my front two windows and happened to rollover a semi-bumpy section of road. The bumps in the road weren't that big, but they were enough to trigger the anti-pinch safety mechanism in the Model Y window. I tried it over several other patchy spots of pavement and could replicate the issue. Just goes to show how stiff the Model Y suspension is (or overly sensitive pinch sensors?)." — Jonathan Elfalan, senior manager, test team

"Ride quality has never been a Tesla strength, but its perpetuated in the Performance upgrade version of the Y by the retuned suspension and huge (21in) wheel rims. Put simply, the Y never feels settled to the point where my wife complained of being slightly nauseous while riding in the rear about town. It will be interesting to learn whether others have the same experience." — Alistair Weaver, VP, editorial & editor-in-chief

"I've heard mixed things about the ride quality. The mass of the 21-inch wheels is certainly noticeable, but I didn't find the impacts to be too bad. I've heard though of other complaints — both on staff and external — that makes me want to spend more time driving in it. I swear the ride was less busy than our first Model 3, but a guy who goes to the same gym as me is actually returning his Model Y because he found the ride to be that poor." — Carlos Lago, manager, feature content

"Our Model Y is equipped with the "Performance Package," a free upgrade on the Performance trim level. It adds 21-inch Überturbine wheels, performance brakes, a lowered suspension, aluminum alloy pedals and it increases the top speed from 145mph to 155mph. Not bad for a free update. The only drawback is that it reduces your max range from 315 to 280, a decrease of 11 percent. It's a pretty cool value, but I'd honestly skip it. I love the way the 21 inch wheeks look, but they make the car ride a little rougher. It doesn't "beat you up" per se, but you definitely feel every imperfection on the road. For my needs, I'd gladly sacrifice some speed and performance, in favor of a cushier ride and longer range. In this case, maybe the long-range model is really the one for me." — Ron Montoya, Senior Consumer Advice Editor


2020 Tesla Model Y: Technology

Logbook Highlights

"There was a firmware update recently that was released for the Model Y. Version 2020.48.30, to be exact. In the past, we needed to be within range of a WiFi signal, but this one updated over the air, which was a nice plus. This updated added driving visualization improvements, quicker access to the wiper and backup camera controls, more detail at Supercharger locations (you can see how many stalls are available), improvements the the "scheduled departure" battery precondition feature and three arcade games were added (Solitaire, Cat Quest and Battle of Polytopia)." — Ronald Montoya, senior consumer advice editor

The Tesla Wall Connector is one of the fastest ways to recharge your vehicle at home. It is capable of charging up to 42 miles per hour on our Model Y, assuming you have a 60 AMP circuit breaker. But it also costs $635, plus it needs to be installed by a qualified electrician.

If you have a NEMA 14-50 outlet (typically used for RVs and electric stoves) at home, you can save some money by opting for Tesla's Gen 2 NEMA adapter and have a quick setup process, assuming you're willing to deal with a slightly slower charging speed. Wouldn't you want to take advantage of that?

The NEMA 14-50 is essentially a 240V outlet on a 50 AMP breaker — it's an option that Tesla recommends and it can charge our Model Y at about 29 miles per hour. For reference, the Tesla wall connector would have a charging speed of 36 miles per hour on the same 50 AMP circuit breaker.

Going back to our situation, an editor reached out to us saying that he had a NEMA 14-50 outlet at home and asked if we had an adapter for it. Unfortunately, we did not. We went to Tesla's online store and saw an adapter bundle for around $220. This includes seven adapters for all the NEMA plug variations- good for road trips that may include charge stops at an RV park. Or, you can opt for a single adapter, for $35.

The adaptor bundle was on backorder, however, so we took a two-pronged approach to the solution. We ordered the single 14-50 NEMA adapter from Tesla's website and then contacted our local Tesla service department about the adapter kit.

A couple of days later, we were surprised to see that the 14-50 plug had shipped from Tesla. However, to this day we still have yet to hear back from the parts department... It has been over 4 weeks. Glad we took the two-pronged approach but we admit that we're a little disappointed that the local parts department never really got back to us. — Rex Tokeshi-Torres, vehicle test technician

"I was driving our Model Y on our EV range test drive loop. The loop snakes along the coast from Edquarters until you get to the southern edge of Orange County. You then turn around and snake your way back north inland. I'm unfamiliar with the area, so I was using the Model Y's nav system to mark my turns. It was working well enough using both the keyboard and voice commands, and having the map up on that big screen was great. Then it decided to shut off on me.

I was stopped at an intersection and scrolling through the map when the whole thing just sort of faded out. That meant I had no information. I couldn't tell you how fast I was going. I couldn't adjust the radio or the the temperature. The Model Y drove just fine, so I pulled over in a parking lot to call Mike Schmidt, who told me about the "hard reset" fix. Foot on the brake, and hold down both dials on the steering wheel for 10 seconds. After a few minutes, the screen slowly came back to life. I spent another few hours behind the wheel and didn't have any more issues.

I heard that a couple other editors had screen issues, too, though neither one of them had to perform a hard restart. At least I know what to do in the future, and this is a potential issue for any car with a digital interface, but it's particularly troublesome when literally everything is tied to this one screen." — Reese Counts, vehicle test editor

"Without fail, every Tesla I've ever driven, breaks. Every model we've had in our long-term fleet has had some sort of major technological or physical failure. From our early Model S to our $144k Model X, then onto our Model 3 that literally fell apart in my hand, and now our Model Y — everything breaks in some way — and it's not minor enough to overlook at any price point.

It's been months since I've driven our Model Y, but I got back in it for a few days this week and it didn't disappoint... to disappoint. In a strange neighborhood, while I was trying to plug an address into navigation, the entire screen and HVAC system quit on me. Total black out.

This means I can't track range, I can't find the nearest supercharger and I can't navigate my way back to the freeway. Not to mention the lack of tunes, the lack of air-conditioning and the general anger of having a brand-new car that operates like a $68,700 beta test. Like pretty much everyone else these days, I have a smart phone, so I was able to use that while I waited for the system to self-reboot, but from any automaker, this is unacceptable." — Travis Langness, reviews editor

"Not too surprisingly, our Model Y's central touchscreen failed to fire up for about the first minute of my drive into the office. It was still just a blank dark expanse when I got out to the street, so I pulled over and waited for it to boot up, which it eventually did. Why wasn't I surprised? Because the same thing happened to me in our long-term Model 3. Not a deal-breaker for a Tesla fan, I imagine, but given that literally all of the vehicle information appears on that screen, it's pretty disconcerting when it fails to report." — Josh Sadlier, director, content strategy

"A few of my neighbors have new Model 3s and both emit sounds from the pedestrian warning system (that sound hybrids and EVs make at speeds below 20 mph) Our Model Y does not make this sound for some reason. So I looked into it and apparently manufacturers like Tesla are only required to put it in half the vehicles they make. Eventually by September 2020, all 'quiet vehicles' will have to have the system in place. I don't particularly like the noise as it's kind of loud, but it is useful in warning people nearby that a large vehicle is on the move." — Jonathan Elfalan, senior manager, test team

"Wireless charging is a nice addition, but phone integration remains lacking. No Android Auto and no Apple CarPlay. While Tesla keeps adding features and improving the screen experience, I'd rather just use what's available on my phone." — Carlos Lago, manager, feature content


2020 Tesla Model Y: Utility

The Model Y's cargoe area is very spacious. Tesla cites 68 cubic feet of maximum capacity, most likely with the rear seats folded down, but it's unclear whether that number includes the front trunk. The rear seats don't fold entirely flat, but there's a wide opening and an easy load-in height.

Logbook Highlights

"It was time for my annual tune up on my road bicycle and the shop isn't near my home, so I had to load it into the back of our Model Y. I don't like taking off the front wheel on my bike, so it tends to take up more room in cars I've been in. I wasn't worried about it not fitting, but I was interested in seeing how easy it would be. I'm pleased to report that it was very easy to fit my bike into the Model Y. It was simply a matter of a button press on each seat back and they quickly laid flat. I had a few inches to spare and it probably could've accommodated two bikes, provided you had a blanket or something to separate them." — Ronald Montoya, senior consumer advice editor


2020 Tesla Model Y: Miscellaneous

This where our editors are free to go off slightly off topic and discuss things related to the Model Y, or Tesla overall, but didn't quite fit into our preset categories.

Logbook Highlights

"It's interesting to me how the vibe of Tesla ownership has changed from when we first tested our Model S to now with our Model Y. Back in 2013, it was a Big Deal to see another Model S owner while driving or when pulling into a Supercharger station. I'd often exchange waves or nods with them. We knew we were driving the future, and it was neat to be at the start of it. Flash forward just seven years. Tesla ownership is decidedly less special. There are way more Teslas at the Supercharger stations, and nobody acknowledges each other. You just plug in, hop back in your car and stare at your phone." — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content


2020 Tesla Model Y: Interior

The Model Y's interior shares much in common with the Model 3, with a few differences. Here's what our editors have noted from sitting inside.

Logbook Highlights

"I'm going to echo the sentiments of my colleagues in noticing a pronounced rattling noise in the Model Y. You hear it at low speeds and particularly over bumpy roads. That's thing about not having an engine to make noise, it makes all other sounds stand out. But that said, once you're up to speed and have your music playing, you don't really hear it much." — Ronald Montoya, senior consumer advice editor

"It seems like our Model Y has developed some interior rattles. While driving on bumpy roads I'll occasionally hear them from the middle roof pillars (the B-pillars, where the front seat belts attach) and the rear hatch area. The rear hatch rattle sounds like it's related to the removable cargo shelf, but I've checked it and it's installed properly. I'd wager that these rattles are because of our Model Y's sport suspension and the corresponding stiff ride." — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content

"The driver's door on our Model Y rattles significantly when you close it. It sounds like the window is shaking around inside there and it's really, really annoying. I'm not sure if this is something that's developed over time (I'll check with some other staffers that have spent more time in the Y) but it's worth noting that this "luxury" SUV has serious build quality problems after just a few months." — Travis Langness, reviews editor

"I'm not enthused about our Model Y's build quality, which is of course a well-known Tesla foible. Check out the rear seatbacks, for example. It looks like the passenger-side seatback isn't latched in place, right? But it is! That's a profound misalignment if it came that way from the factory, which I have to assume it did. Yikes." — Josh Sadlier, director, content strategy

"There's plenty of rear legroom in our Y. Headroom is pretty good, too. Anyone under 6-foot-2 tall should be comfortable. The rear seats recline, and there are rear climate air vents mounted in the center console. Whether you're carpooling with friends or schlepping your kids to school, the Model Y's big rear seat should come in handy." — Brent Romans, senior editor, written content

"I spent a few days in the Model Y to prepare for a video comparison with the Model 3 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. My wife owns a Model 3 and I was particularly interested in how it would compare as a family car (we have a baby daughter).

No doubt as she grows up, our daughter will appreciate the extra rear legroom of the Y, but for now there's ample space for a child seat in either. The extra versatility of the hatchback is useful in the Model Y for throwing in the stroller, but I find the absence of a load cover irritating. Anyone peering through the glass can see what's inside." — Alistair Weaver, VP, editorial & editor-in-chief

"Outside of driving, it appears that the Model Y has three primary attributes: 1) A taller seating position for the perception of improved visibility. 2) A massive second row. 3) Much more storage capacity than the Model 3.

Visibility: The forward view appears strong, but for some reason I have a heightened awareness of the overhangs. My theory is that is has to do with how I can't see the hood from my ideal sitting position. The a-pillars are pretty thick. But worse, the rear view is abysmal. I'm calling it Camaro-like. Other coupe-style SUVs have similar problems, but that doesn't forgive the poor rearward view. You really have to rely on the array of sensors and alerts to safely reverse in this thing.

Second row: It's massive. Tons of head and leg room. Really like the reclining second row as well. USB-C charging ports will be great for those who have phones/devices that use them; otherwise you'll have to get an adapter. Standard heated rear seats is something you wont find standard in other small luxury SUVs, but there are no physical controls back there — odd. Also, you can adjust the rear vents but three-zone climate is not available.

The second row can be folded down from the cargo area, but in our car only the passenger side drops without a nudge. The second row is also pretty darn heavy too, especially the driver side. My wife actually might have trouble putting it back in place — still need to test." — Carlos Lago, manager, feature content


2020 Tesla Model Y: Videos

Here are the latest videos on the Tesla Model Y we've posted in the Edmunds YouTube Channel.

Edmunds took ownership of a 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance last year as part of our long-term test program. Now, one year later, Carlos Lago shares the team's experience after approximately 9,000 miles of use.

With a top speed of 190 mph and a 0-60 mph time of around 3 seconds, the Lamborghini Urus is one of the quickest SUVs on the planet. Can the Tesla Model Y possibly keep up with that kind of power? It's Tesla vs. Lamborghini and electric vs. supercar in this very special drag race of the Tesla Model Y vs. the Lamborghini Urus.

We take EV testing seriously. Like you, we want to know how the range figures provided by the EPA and auto manufacturers match what happens in the real world. To find out, every electric car we evaluate undergoes a real-world range test. You can read more about the test and the results here.

Another week, another drag race with our long-term 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance. Over the past few months, you've seen the Model Y drag racing the BMW X3, Porsche Taycan, Chevy Corvette and Jeep Trackhawk. This time out, we've brought along another car from our long-term fleet, the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500.

We hit the track with our very own 2020 Corvette and 2020 Model Y to see how well a high-performance EV SUV can do against America's iconic sports car. Which one has the better 0-60 time? Can the Model Y keep up against the Corvette? How fast can the Model Y go on a full charge? We answer these questions and more in this very special gas vs. EV drag race.

Which is the fastest EV for $70,000 to $80,000? Is it the base model Porsche Taycan or the Tesla Model Y Performance? Alistair Weaver and Carlos Lago find out in this EV drag race.

The 2020 Tesla Model Y and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk are some of the fastest SUVs available today. We took both to a test track, to have a good old-fashioned drage race. It's gas versus electricity, can you guess who won?

It's been a frustrating few months of ownership with our Tesla Model Y for one reason: We haven't been able to test it. While you normally wouldn't expect that to be the case for an SUV, especially an all-electric one, ours has the word "performance" twice in its name: It's a Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Performance with the Performance Upgrade. Now that our test track has reopened, we finally get to see how it lives up to its lofty name by measuring how quickly it can stop, how hard it can corner, and how fast it can accelerate.

We've owned nearly every vehicle Tesla has ever sold. While we have — and have outlined — our complaints and criticisms, in this video Carlos Lago explains the things we think the rest of the industry could learn from Tesla.

Edmunds experts Alistair Weaver and Carlos Lago compare the pros and cons of Tesla's Model 3, Model Y and Ford's Mustang Mach-E. Which is the best between the Tesla Model Y and Model 3, and how do the Model Y and Model 3 compare to the Ford Mustang Mach-E? Watch to find out as Alistair and Carlos discuss key differences in electric car price, range, interior, specs and more.

We had plans for a much bigger comparison, but then the coronavirus pandemic hit. We still drove each high-performance luxury SUV, so in this video the Edmunds editorial team discusses the merits of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, the BMW X3 M, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe and the Tesla Model Y Performance.

Tesla fans had a lot to say about our first impressions video on Edmunds' new long-term test car: a 2020 Tesla Model Y Dual Motor Performance. Here, Carlos Lago addresses an error or two, adds clarity to the first video, and answers some of your most frequent comments, including those about price, storage, phone integration and additional controls.

Our 2020 Tesla Model Y has arrived! In this video, Edmunds' Carlos Lago takes delivery of our new long-term test car and gives a brief review.
