There are now three variations of the Model Y to choose from; the Rear-Wheel Drive, Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Long Range and the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Performance.
We were testing the Long Range edition on this occasion. This variant, and also the Performance, has a usable battery capacity of 75 kWh.
The Long Range, as the name suggests, prioritises distance over power, with a claimed range of 331 miles, a top speed of 135mph and 0-60mph times of 4.8 seconds.
The Performance option packs an extra punch, with top speeds of 155mph and 3.5 second 0-60mph times. The increase in power means you lose some range, with the Performance only offering a claimed range of 319 miles.
Performance variants come with 450hp, a noticeable jump up from the already impressive 384hp available in the Long Range.
If you do choose to lease the RWD model, it comes with a claimed range of up to 283 miles, top speeds of 135mph and 0-60mph times of 6.6 seconds.
The added mileage available in the Long Range edition makes it the pick of the bunch, for me. The power is already so impressive in the Long Range that you may not need to make that upgrade to the Performance, especially at the cost of sacrificing on range.
