As a topper in the EV industry, Tesla always brings improved cars in new upgrades and versions. The same thing is expected in the next 2024 Model Y (Project Juniper).
Now, the Model Y lack in touchscreen interface, interior and exterior look, and other aspects. In the latest talks, Elon Musk stated the Tesla new Model Y 2024 will be upgraded and have greater traits than the original one.
Here, I’ll talk about the key traits, upgrades, and impacts that you may get in the new MY. Keep On Reading For The Details!
Overview Of The Upcoming Tesla Model Y 2024!
Drawing from the analysis, the new Model Y of 2024 will be updated in 2 versions (Long Range and Performance). Let’s learn what you can expect from the new MY:
1. Design and Look
The Tesla Model Y 2024 is going to have some seriously cool upgrades to its exterior and interior. And they’re not fully changing parts but making better integrations and improvements. Check out the possible changes below!
Exterior Design – Refined and Modern
The prior MY models have issues like the Tesla Model Y windshield gets foggy. But it is rumored that the new model will have improved build quality.
Still, it’s not clear what changes Tesla will make in the next Model Y “Project Juniper” work. However, you can expect better cosmetics and materials used in the new 2024 MY cars.
Plus, the Tesla MY may contain better cut-out edges on the front bumper’s sides to ensure aesthetic points + improved efficiency against aero drags.
Interior Design – Spacious and Versatile
Elon Musk hinted that the new Model Y will have a better interior and seating, but it hasn’t been officially confirmed. The cars may have a dashboard, touchscreen, and steering wheel in the new design.
Based on rumors and analysis, the new Model Y may have more cargo space and roomier seating for greater comfort.
However, some changes may not be liked by everyone, such as the absence of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone interfaces.
2. Performance and Specs
Like the recent Tesla Model 2 news, the Tesla MY 2024 is rumored to have a better battery, range, steering, handling, and so on. To know the possible changes and new additions to the future MY car, here’s the detail.
Battery and Range
Based on the vehicle analysts, it seems the upcoming MY 2024 will contain a structural battery. If Tesla makes better improvements, the cars (MY) will ensure a good range and fast charging benefits.
As the last year’s Model Y contains around 303 – 330 miles of range, I am expecting that the latest one would come with a better range than this (under 310 – 350 miles of range).
Acceleration and Top Speed
According to last year’s improvements, the 2024 Model Y may have better acceleration and speed range. The former MY cars can go 60 MPH in 3.5 – 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 MPH, but I think the next one will be even faster!
Handling and Ride Quality
The 2024 Tesla Model Y is expected to have better steering and handling, even though it’s still a big car. It should feel smoother to drive and give you a more comfortable ride.
The Model Y is the safest Tesla car you can buy. It has a safety rating of 98% against crashes or collisions from the Euro NCAP.
Based on the analysis, the next Model Y in 2024 may have the same level of safety rating. Well, the new MY may have better safety features than prior Model Y models. Such as –
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Forward collision mitigation.
- Lane-keeping assist.
- Tesla Autopilot system.
- Blind-spot warning.
3. Price and Availability
The 2024 Model Y new price may start around $40,000 – $55,000. In the future, it can cost less than $30,000 based on the selling points.
Keep in mind the government incentives and rebates terms as this will raise the cost too. FYI, the tax is not more than $7,500 for the cars.
Tesla offers a pre-order option for all models so I feel the Model Y 2024 will also contain this facility.
Therefore, the delivery timing will be given through email or SMS to the phone with a special link for you to appoint a delivery period when the car is available.
Lastly, know that the future MY model (aka Project Juniper) will be available in the USA only. But you’ll gradually find the new MY in other 36 countries after the launch.
What Is The Payment Method?
The payment method for preorders is accepted via electronic check in the Tesla app, wire transfer, leasing, or bank-certified check. Then again, the initial order payment is accepter via credit cards.
4. Charging Changes
When the 2024 Model Y comes out, it will probably have similar charging options as it does now. It will still be able to use the V3 Supercharger, which charges the car faster than other chargers.
For Tesla home charging, the new Model Y will likely have the same basic options as the current one. You can use a mobile charger or a wall connector to charge the car.
The 2024 Model Y will also work with destination charging and other public charging networks, just like the current ones do.
5. Environmental Impact
Tesla makes electric vehicles that produce less pollution, which helps the environment. They always try to improve their cars and have a plan called “Master Plan Part 3” to do that.
Based on what I found so far, the new Model Y in 2024 will be even better for the planet. We can tell this by looking at the changes Tesla has made from 2020 to now.
While it’s not confirmed yet, the way Tesla has improved their cars in the past shows that they care about the environment and want to make a positive impact.
6. Market Impact and Competitors
From looking at past Tesla cars like the Model Y, it looks like the new Model Y 2024 will be amazing. It will compete with other EVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Hyundai Loniq 5. Tesla wants to make sure their new car gets the best attention with positive reviews.
And so, they will try their hardest to make the upcoming MY even better than the previous Model Y. That way, the Model Y can stay in the top spot as one of the best electric cars out there.
Is A New Model Y Coming Out?
Based on Reuters and other global news portals, they claim the new MY will release in late October 2024.
Upgraded Features Of Tesla Model Y 2024
Depending on the last year’s traits and upgrades, I want to make an early prediction of features that you may get in the next Model Y. Here’s the detail:
Long Range (For Better Driving Experience)
- 330 – 350 miles of range.
- 60 MPH per 4 – 5 seconds.
- 19″ wheel size.
- 156 MPH or more of top speed
- Heated back and front seats with manmade leather upholstery (improved style).
- 15″ or higher size touchscreen in a new shape.
- Upgrade the exterior design of the MY.
Performance (For Racing Feel)
- 303 – 310 miles of range.
- 60 MPH per 3 – 4 seconds.
- 21″ wheel size.
- 160 MPH or more of top speed.
- Seating capacity is 5 – 7 passengers with new changes in material or layout of seats.
- 15″ touchscreen in new outline.
- Changes in the shape of the exterior of Model Y.
The Tesla new Model Y 2024 is not out yet but based on the improvements of last year’s Model Y cars, I expect it to be great.
There might be changes to the inside and outside, like a better touchscreen, more comfortable seating, and different materials. Elon in fact indicates that the latest MY will have some parts of the 1st Gen MY (2020).
In the end, Tesla is making cars that are better for the eco-system and have better features for car owners to enjoy. Other EVs still use gas, but Tesla’s cars run on battery power.
I hope the new Model Y will have even more awesome traits than before!
