One of the things you may hear about electric cars is "range anxiety," but modern electric car batteries are large enough to get you pretty much wherever you need to go. With an EPA-estimated range of 315 miles on the Performance trim with a full charge, the 2020 Tesla Model Y can travel just about as far as many gas-powered cars can go on a single tank.
Both 2020 Model Y trim levels feature optional all-wheel drive, so your vehicle can be ready for whatever Mother Nature sends it way. Powered by super-responsive, independent electric motors, the Model Y is designed to instantly control torque to the front and rear wheels. That can mean better handling, traction, and stability control, regardless of the scenario.
Like all Tesla models, the Model Y's interior centerpiece is a massive 15-inch screen. It goes beyond infotainment though, as the screen controls just about every function in the vehicle. With crisp resolution and an integrated navigation system, the Model Y has various gadgets you may want. You might even find some "Easter eggs," or fun little hidden surprises mixed in. There's even a mode to keep your pet warm or cool while they're in the car alone!
The average car enthusiast may fear the day when big V8 engines will no longer be available. However, that doesn't mean our electric future will be dull. Far from it — the 2020 Model Y is fast. On the Performance trim, the Model Y can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, boasting a top speed of 150 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new). Clearly, the Model Y is far from boring. You can even shop for a model with lower suspension in the Performance trim for better handling.
The 2020 Model Y's cargo space is quite large: 68 cu ft with the rear seats folded. The number of storage options is significant, including additional storage under the rear cargo area, plus the front trunk ("frunk"). That means you can have plenty of room for your stuff on your all-electric road trip.
