Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Front-seat occupants are unlikely to have any complaints about space in the Tesla Model Y, no matter how tall they are. There’s also loads of room for odds and ends, with a lidded cubby between the front seats and a good-sized storage area under the centre armrest.

The front seat area feels remarkably light and airy thanks to the combination of tall side windows and a standard full glass roof.

The seats are super-easy to fold down – you just flick switches on the wall of the boot and they drop down of their own accord. The rear seats have an extra trick for those sitting in the back, too, because they can be reclined when the boot isn’t crammed full.

Boot space

The Model Y has a surprisingly big boot, especially when you factor in the large well hidden under the floor. There’s also a smaller underfloor storage area behind the rear seats, which is a great place to stow the charging cables. Using the additional front boot (‘frunk’) too, we managed to squeeze in an impressive 10 carry-on suitcases – more than in the Q4 e-tron (nine) and EV6 AWD (seven).
