Tesla increased the range of the Model Y with the announcement of the production version. The electric SUV will now have up to 315 miles of range on a single charge.
With the release of its Q4 2019 financial results, Tesla said that it improved the energy efficiency of the Model Y:
“Due to continued engineering progress of the Model Y all-wheel drive (AWD), we have been able to increase its maximum EPA range to 315 miles, compared to our previous estimate of 280 miles. This extends Model Y’s lead as the most energy efficient electric SUV in the world.”
The company is announcing the range increase as they confirm that they already started the production ramp at the Fremont factory:
“Model Y production ramp started in January 2020, ahead of schedule”
The new range is now displayed on Tesla’s updated Model Y online configurator:
