Tesla Model Y configurator opens in the UK

October 20, 2021

Configurator Now Open!

The time has come! The Tesla Model Y has now opened for ordering in the UK, after Tesla launched their online configurator with the first deliveries appearing in early 2022.

Tesla Model Y Long Range

The Tesla Model Y range starts with the Long Range and with a price from £54,990 (Correct as of 19th October 2021). The usual 5 colour choices are available with the Pearl White Multi-Coat included within the price.

Options to add include the larger 20″ induction wheels at an uplift of £2,100 and the optional white interior at £1,100. The long-range model is also available with a towbar after delivery.

The long-range Model Y gives you a WLTP range of approx. 315 miles, a Top Speed (where permitted) of 135mph and a 0-60mph of 4.8 seconds.

Tesla Model Y Performance

For those who don’t think the long-range is quick enough, the Performance upgrades the specs quite heavily. Firstly, the WLTP range reduces slightly to 298 miles, the top speed increases (where permitted) to 150mph and the 0-60mph is a rapid 3.5 seconds.

The performance model benefits from additional items including 21″ Überturbine Wheels, which we absolutely love. Performance brakes, lowed suspension and aluminium alloy pedals all add to the package.

Options for the performance model is limited to the Black or the optional White interior at a cost of £1,100. The 5 colour choices are as the usual Tesla lineup, detailed below.

7 Seat Configuration

There is no mention of the 7-seat configuration in the United Kingdom at the time of writing. In the USA the 7 seat variant was added at a later date, this may be the case for the UK. FOr the time being the Tesla Model X is available in both 6 and 7 seat configurations.
