If you’re interested in placing an order for the Tesla Model Y and are willing to wait until at least late 2020 for one, you can do so by visiting the automaker’s online configurator and proceed to build your ideal all-electric crossover.
The cheapest version you can order right now is the Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive spec, with the standard solid black paint, 18-inch Aero wheels, all-black interior and a five seat configuration.
Its purchase price is $47,000 ($42,700 after est. savings) and you still end up with a range of 300 miles (482 km) and a 5.5-second 0-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time.
Customers willing to hold out until the Spring of 2021 can get the Standard Range Model Y, which will cost upwards of $39,000 according to Tesla. Currently, you can also opt for the Long Range Dual Motor AWD spec, as well as the Performance version, the former kicking things off at $51,000 ($46,700 with est. savings), while the latter is priced from $60,000 ($55,700 with est. savings).
Let’s go all out
If you’re only interested in ultimate Model Y experience, then you need to get the Dual Motor Performance version and add the following features: Red Multi-Coat paint ($2,500), Black and White interior ($1,000), Seven-Seat layout ($3,000 – and available in 2021), Autopilot ($3,000) and Full Self-Driving Capability ($5,000). That brings the grand total to $74,500, or $70,200 after estimated savings.
