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.
