The first Tesla Model Y deliveries arrived for customers in the U.S. on Friday. Excited owners were quick to share some first images online, while others gave some first impressions videos.
Now, we have an even more in-depth Tesla Model Y review from YouTube channel TeslaRaj, who like some other channels, gained access to a first Model Y delivery thanks to helpful fans. The vehicle examined and reviewed is a blue AWD Performance Model Y configuration.
TeslaRaj’s Model Y review goes more in-depth than other early videos so far, because he spends most of his time with a tape measure offering various measurements within the vehicle, ranging from trunk storage, seat space and more, answering many questions future owners have had about the compact SUV.
The channel also shows real-life room in the rear seats, showing himself seated in between two of the car’s owners. While legroom is decent, shoulder room is pretty snug with three adults ranging from 5’7 to 6’1. The rear seats also have three different adjustments for recline.
Raj also shows how trunk space can fit carry on sized luggage. The under storage in the rear can fit a small carry on and overall, Raj says he would be able to fit seven carry-ons in the impressive cargo capacity of the Model Y. (5 in the trunk; 1 in sub-trunk; 1 in the ‘frunk’), which has 68 cubic feet (2 more than the previously advertised 66 cubic feet).
Full dimensions of the Tesla Model Y can be seen in the owner’s manual. The Model Y has a heat pump, which should help for those Canadian winters, while it also includes USB-C and USB-A ports up front to go with included wireless charging.
As Tesla continues to deliver Model Y to its U.S. customers, the first Canadian orders are set to deliver in “mid-2020”, with many in the “prepare for delivery” stage. The Tesla Model Y starts at $72,390 CAD for the Long Range Dual Motor AWD configuration, with the Performance version at $12,000 CAD more.
