The American automaker is confident that there is no limit to perfection. Tesla continues to pump its electric cars. The Model Y has gotten a significant technological upgrade.
According to a new report from The Driven, Tesla has plans for a Model Y with a much longer range. Foreign journalists call the promised novelties “ultra-long-distance”. Tesla’s electric cars already offer more range than competitors, and in some cases significantly more. However, the brand is not going to stop there.
Rumors of a new Model Y variant have come from China, where Tesla recently approved five new Model Y trims. What’s more, Tesla is now exporting Model Y from its Shanghai factory. We will learn about the future novelty from the official documents filed by the American automaker in China.
The new modification will have a range of 640 km according to the NEDC rating, which is still used in China (as well as Australia).
This means that in real driving, the average range of an electric crossover will be about 550 kilometers.
Even this figure speaks of impressive growth. Unfortunately, there is no information on the size of the battery in the document. But it is clarified that the Model Y is a twin-engine all-wheel drive crossover with a 137 kW front engine and 184 kW rear engine. The documents also indicate a torque of 559 Nm.
