Elon Musk has called the crossover Tesla’s most important vehicle and said it eventually could outsell all other models combined. Sales got off to a strong start this year, despite the pandemic, according to Tesla data. Third-party analysts have praised the Model Y for a number of innovations they say make it the most advanced EV on the market, including its heating and cooling system. The Model Y is powered by a 75-kilowatt-hour battery that is largely similar to the Model 3 battery. It can get up to 316 miles of range, according to EPA estimates.
