Tesla’s new Model Y is now available for order according to the company’s website via a newsletter dispatched on the last day of July. Packing all the basics and more, the vehicle is of the all-electric class with a cargo range of 68 cu ft, range 316 mi, and an AWD Dual Motor to round up the Model Y’s unique selling points.
As with other Tesla models, Model Y is built for safety. Achieved by making sure the car is close to the asphalt as much as allowable giving a low center of gravity and hence more overall balance. Imagine Lionel Messi and how difficult it is to push him off the ball due largely to his sporty diminutive build. I guess you can say that Teslas are Lionel Messis’ of automobile or the Apple of the smartphone industry.

Independent electric motors digitally control torque to the front and rear wheels. Come rain, or shine you can expect your Model Y to keep going for you and what’s more, the Dual Motor all-electric wheel drive offers one of the best handling for sale right now.
