Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Tesla Model Y Performance can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (ranked №58 out of 667 electric vehicles) and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.

The car’s powertrain delivers up to 393 kW (527 hp) of power and 660 Nm of torque.

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

Real-world range of the Tesla Model Y Performance is 416–508 km (ranked №175 out of 667 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

Plan your trips using the EV Navigation interactive map.

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

The Tesla Model Y Performance in Europe is equipped with a CCS Type 2 (Tesla) charging port. You can charge it conveniently at home using a standard outlet, or utilize any public AC charging station with the appropriate cable. However, the car's built-in charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging speed to 11 kW, which translates to roughly 61 km of range added per hour.

For faster charging, use DC fast-charging stations. The Tesla Model Y Performance supports a maximum DC charging rate of 250 kW, but it's important to note that battery temperature and current charge level can affect the actual charging speed you'll experience.
