Exactly when the Model Y will go on sale in Australia has not been confirmed. It has been certified for local roads since the end of 2021.

Model Y was initially due to go down under 2021, but has since been pushed back. Due to the covid-related lockdown, Tesla built the Model 3 and Y at a plant in Shanghai that was shut down (and subsequently running low on capacity).

The Model 3 sedan is expected to be the best-selling Tesla in Australia when the order is opened before the supply is stable. Model 3 Australia’s best-selling electric cars and SUVs are so popular here, the Model Y has a strong chance of taking that crown.

Despite the supply shortfall, Tesla sold 4,481 Model 3s by the end of May this year. Not only is it more affordable than other electric vehicles, including the more affordable MG ZS EV, but also on top of the same size, combustible-powered vehicles like the BMW 3 Series.

The The Model Y will be priced below $ 70,000 before it goes on sale in Australia.

The highly anticipated electric SUV will start at $ 67,990 before the on-road cost of the standard range model and will increase to $ 98,172 before the on-road for all-wheel drive performance, according to a guideline for “corporate and industrial customers”, but published by The car chases.

That starting price aligns the model Y RWD with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 RWD ($ 71,900 before on-road) and the Kia EV6 RWD ($ 67,900 before on-road cost).

For the context, the Model 3 Range opens at $ 63,900 before the on-road for the rear-wheel drive base model and tops the list at $ 88,900 for a flagship performance.

The car chases The report states that the Model Y will not feature a mid-range, non-performance all-wheel drive option during launch. This will probably add the option later in the life of the Tesla car.

The Model Y will offer a choice of 62.28kWh and 82.8kWh battery packs when it arrives in Australia. The smaller of the two batteries will be used in the standard range, the larger battery is reserved for performance.

Tesla Australia claims that the Model Y is less than the 602km range claimed for the Model 3 Long Range AWD, and claims that the Model 3 Performance AWD will range up to 505km.
