Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros
Performance Pack adjustable dampers are too firm out of the box
the look on Tesla drivers’ faces

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.

The 2020 Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the next big thing from the automaker, until the next thing.

Pros
Another electric crossover
Another Tesla
Another tech spectacle
Another car for non-car people

Cons
Another deadline for Tesla to miss
Another wait for mainstream buyers
Another distraction
Another promise of self-driving

The 2020 Tesla Model Y is an all-new model.Part of the first Model Y generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
300-mile projected maximum range
Stunning acceleration from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network
Cutting-edge technology

Cons
Unreliable delivery and pricing expectations
Reputation for poor build quality
Tiny third-row seats
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto support

The newest ambitious project from Tesla is the all-electric Model Y compact crossover. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk touted a driving range of up to 300 miles and a zero-to-60-mph time of as little as 3.5 seconds when he unveiled the Model Y during a livestreamed event in March. The 2020 Tesla Model Y looks very similar to the compact Model 3 sedan but can be outfitted with a third row of seats for a total seating capacity of seven.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.
