What Car? says...
You could think of the Tesla Model Y electric car as a Model 3 that’s been pumped full of growth hormone to turn it into an SUV with a higher driving position and more room inside.
The Model Y sits below the Tesla Model X in the all-electric brand's SUV line-up, and does without that car’s upwards-opening 'falcon-wing' doors. As it stands, all versions come with five seats, although a seven-seater option will be offered in the future.
Over the next few pages of this review, we'll tell you everything you need to know about the Tesla Model Y, including what it's like to drive, how practical it is and how many miles you can really expect to get from a full battery charge.
We’ll also run you through some of the impressive safety and self-driving tech – as well as how you can turn your Model Y into a beach buggy arcade game or a Netflix 'cinema'.
