2022 Tesla Model Y EPA Ratings Include Standard Range RWD That Doesn’t Exist
Moving over to the Long Range AWD, the 2022 model is flexing 330 miles (531 kilometers) and 122 MPGe with the standard 19-inch wheels compared to 326 miles (524 kilometers) and 125 MPGe. The Performance AWD stays put with 303 miles (488 kilometers) of combined range and 111 MPGe.
The best-selling Tesla in the United States of America, the Model Y, is presently available to purchase from $58,990 for the Long Range and $63,990 for the Performance. These prices don’t include the $1,200 destination charge, and as you’re well aware, a tax credit isn’t available for the time being. The Senate will vote on the Build Back Better Act in January 2022, a $1.85 trillion social spending bill that includes a $12,500 EV tax credit.
Ordering a Tesla Model Y is a straightforward process, but as you probably know by now, delivery times are borderline atrocious. The Long Range, for example, is currently listed with a delivery window of July 2022. As for the Performance, the Texas-based carmaker can make it happen in February.
Both variants can be specified with a $1,000 tow hitch capable of pulling 3,500 pounds (1,588 kilograms) at the expense of your Model Y’s range. The dual-motor crossover is also available with a $1,000 black-and-white interior, while the $3,000 three-row layout is exclusive to the Long Range.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E is arguably the biggest thorn in the Model Y’s side due to its Mustang-inspired styling and superior build quality. On paper, the driving range and performance figures aren’t too shabby either.
