Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Tesla Model Y Standard Range RWD is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 220 kW (295 hp) of power and 310 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 6.6 seconds (ranked №367 out of 662 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 135 mph.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

The estimated How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? for Tesla Model Y Standard Range RWD falls between 218–266 miles, ranking it №331 out of 662 electric vehicles. Several conditions can influence this range:

  • Speed: The battery drains faster at higher speeds.
  • Temperature: Extreme temperatures can impact range.
  • Terrain: Range is reduced on hilly or mountainous terrain.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving behaviors, such as frequent acceleration and braking, decrease efficiency.
  • Feature utilization: Climate control and media system usage also affect range.

These figures are approximations, and your actual driving range may vary. When planning trips, consider these factors and be prepared for potential charging stops.

For trip planning assistance, utilize the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?
