Tesla Model Y Performance EPA Range Takes a Hit

By: Mobin

The Tesla Model Y Performance's EPA-estimated range has been decreased from the initial 285 miles to 279 miles for the 2024 model year.


The range reduction is likely due to Tesla adjusting to the tougher 2024 EPA testing methodology for driving modes.


The Model Y's EPA range varies from 260 miles (RWD) to 310 miles (Long Range AWD with 19-inch wheels) for the 2024 model year.

Model Y Lineup

The Model Y Performance accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.


The Model Y lineup starts at $38,130 (after tax credit) for the RWD version and goes up to $46,630 for the Performance model.


The Long Range AWD Model Y also saw a range reduction of up to 8.2%, depending on wheel size (19-inch or 20-inch).

Consumers are eager to see real-world range tests of the updated Model Y to fully assess the impact of the EPA changes.
