Review

The Tesla Model Y is a Model 3 for the more family-minded buyer. It could be better to drive, but it stands out for performance, range and charging – and should hold its value brilliantly.

Both versions of the Model Y come with plenty of luxuries, including climate control, adaptive cruise control, faux-leather seats (heated in the front and back), an electric tailgate and keyless entry via an app on your smartphone. There isn’t much on the options list. Indeed, apart from metallic paint, the only options are extra autonomous driving functions.

This range-topping Model can do 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds, so it’s quicker even than a Porsche 911 Carrera. It can officially do 298 miles on a full battery charge, although 240 miles is more realistic on the road.
