Tesla Model Y Adds Standard Range Model and Third-Row Option

  • Tesla has added a cheaper Standard Range model of the Model Y to its lineup with an EPA estimated 244 miles of range.
  • The rear-wheel-drive Model Y Standard Range starts at $43,190.
  • A new seven-seat configuration is now available on the Standard Range and Long Range for $3000.

Tesla’s Model Y electric compact crossover has added a cheaper Standard Range model with an EPA-estimated 244 miles of range, the lowest driving range of any Tesla available, despite CEO Elon Musk tweeting in July that the model was dropped because of its sub-250-mile range. And it’s still not the cheapest Tesla you can buy. That is currently the Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which starts at $39,190 and has an estimated 263 miles of range. The Model Y Standard Range starts at $43,190 and is available to order now.

The Model Y crossover is based on the Model 3 sedan, and it shares its chassis and interior. However when we tested a Long Range Model Y, we found that its ride was rougher and its handling wasn’t as good as the Model 3’s. The Model Y is offered in two other versions: Long Range (EPA-estimated 326-mile range) and Performance (303-mile range), both dual-motor models with all-wheel drive. The newly introduced Standard Range model is rear-wheel drive.

Tesla has also added a third-row option to the Model Y, announced at the crossover’s launch last year, and it’s available for $3000 on both Standard Range and Long Range models. On the Model Y, the option can be had with an all-black or black and white interior, and it adds two seats in the rear with third-row USB-C outlets, a sliding second row, and electronic flat folding releases in the trunk. We expect headroom to be fairly tight in the available third row, though its dimensions haven’t been announced.
