The first photos of the Tesla Model Y interior - how does it differ from Model 3?

In March 2019, Elon Musk showed the worldthe long-awaited Tesla Model Y electric car, which is a cross between a car and a truck. Such cars are better known as crossovers and are great for family people who often go on trips with a bunch of different things. Many people pre-ordered a new product last year and very soon, during March 2020, they will begin to receive their long-awaited cars. It is known that the crossover is assembled on the platform of the relatively inexpensive Tesla Model 3 car, but, as you would expect, there are many differences between them. The most interesting distinguishing features of the new items are in his salon.

About the features of the electric interiorCleanTechnica told the car with a link to the @mrleetesla Twitter account. One of the Tesla fans managed to photograph the Tesla Model Y interior from different angles, which shows that the interior of the crossover is much wider than that of a passenger electric car. Like any good passenger truck, the novelty has a quite roomy trunk, in which, if necessary, you can put travel bags or even put a bicycle. The exact dimensions of the cabin and the trunk are not available at the moment, but in the photos the Tesla Model Y's spaciousness seems impressive. Closely, at least, certainly not.

What does the Tesla Model Y look like?

The door panels are trimmed in black Alcantara,which is also known as faux suede. In general, the entire interior of the novelty is made in a dark style, which gives it a solid look. What material is covered in the center console of the new product, on which the dashboard, touch screen and controls are installed, is not visible in the photographs. If it is the same as the Tesla Model 3, the owners of the crossover will have to deal with it as carefully as possible, because it is very susceptible to dirt and scratches. It is hoped that the company took into account the negative reviews and corrected this imperfection.

The tailgate is electrically operated, which means that it can open automatically. In front of the car, according to the standard, two people can sit, and three passengers can be put in the back. Well, now we can say that the Tesla Model Y is a good car for large families.
