The 2024 Tesla Model Y has been updated with a longer claimed driving range, quicker acceleration, restyled interior trims and new features. Interestingly, despite the new changes, the price remains the same.

Tesla’s upgraded Model Y starts its journey in China, where it holds the crown of China’s best-selling SUV from January to May.

The CLTC range of the base Model Y has been increased to 554 km, a minor but welcome improvement of 9 kilometers, or a 1.65% increase. Its acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h has been reduced from 6.9 seconds to 5.9 seconds, meaning it’s quicker off the mark. The price remains RMB 263,900 (about €33,680), with an estimated delivery time of 2-6 weeks.

The Model Y Long Range’s range has been increased by 28 kilometers to 688 kilometers, a 4.24% improvement. Keeping with the same theme, the pricing remains intact at RMB 299,900 (€38,300), with a 6- to 8-week waiting period.

Model Y Performance did not receive a facelift; its CLTC range remains unchanged either at 615 km, and naturally, its starting price remains unchanged at RMB 349,900 (€44,700). Customers that are eager to get one should expect 2-6 weeks for delivery.

The company teased the Model Y’s sophisticated new multi-colored ambient lighting, a refreshed dashboard trim, and flashy 19-inch wheels on its Weibo account.

According to sources, a more significant upgrade for the Model Y is due this time next year, with the restyled front and back fascias, stalk-less steering wheel, and other improvements announced with the latest Model 3.
