The Model Y is out and we’re finding out many slight, but important improvements that it has over the Model 3. At the same time however, we’re also noticing some features clearly missing in the Model Y.

Here are 4 things that the Model Y improves on the Model 3, and 4 things it is missing.
#1: Heat Pump
Heat Pumps are considered to be 100% efficient because they output the same heat compared to energy usage, and Tesla added a heat pump to Model Y. In the Model 3, and all other Tesla’s for that matter, resistance heating has been used, and when used extensively, we can see drastic drops in real world range in cold temperatures. In reply to a Teslarati article about the Model Y heat pump, Elon Musk said on twitter:
“Model Y heat pump is some of the best engineering I’ve seen in a while. Team did next-level-work”.
delivering the Model Y for about 15 days, but I’m sure we’ll see some soon.
#2: Radar Heater
A big issue that is a frequent argument against full self driving is that snow or ice could obstruct sensors. Tesla added a Model Y Radar Heater to the front radar sensor as well on the Model Y, since this would often get obstructed in the Model 3.
#3: Side Pillar Camera Glare
The 3rd hidden improvement on the Model Y also has to do with the autopilot system, and this is specific to the side pillar cameras.
In the Model 3, the side cameras have a large opening around the lens, and Model 3 owners had an issue with glare on the camera lens.
Well, in the Model Y Autopilot system, this side camera opening has gotten much smaller, so this should improve that issue.
In the Model 3, the front console included 2 USB A ports, and the rear of that console included another 2 USB A ports.
Now, in the Model Y you’ll notice that the front console has one USB A-port and one USB-C port, while the rear of that console has 2 USB-C ports.
So what is worse in the Model Y vs Model 3?
Of course, since the Model Y is larger, the range is lower, the speed is slower, and the 0-60 takes longer, but let’s get into a few things you might not have realized.
#1: No Auto Dimming Mirrors.
In the Model 3, the side mirrors would auto-dim when lights were too bright behind you, and that feature is gone in the Model Y. The Model Y auto dimming mirrors are non-existant. No real indication of why they disappeared.
#2: No Model Y Homelink.
Homelink used to be included in the Model 3 premium interior, and it will automatically control garage doors in particular, as well as gates, lights, and security systems. It has since been removed in the Model 3, and has also been removed on the Model Y.
If you want to get Model Y homelink, you can purchase the retrofit for $300. There is an actual piece of hardware that they install, as well as software and then you’re good to go.
#3 No Track Mode.
On the Model 3 Performance, track mode is a software feature that allows drivers to
“customize its handling, providing even more control over how their car behaves on track”. You can adjust things like Handling balance, stability assistance, and regen braking, as it monitors and records lots of data for you to view in real time.
Well, even though the Model Y performance is close in performance, there is no Model Y track mode.
Luckily, track mode is a software feature, so it is something that Tesla could add in a future software update in the Model Y for Performance owners.
#4 No Pedestrian Warning System.
In the Model 3, starting in September of last year, Tesla began adding the Pedestrian Warning system for all cars in the US.
According to Tesla:
“The Pedestrian Warning System is an audible tone played when the vehicle is moving slowly (up to 19 mph) in either Drive or Reverse. The sound I splayed via a speaker mounted in front fascia and alerts nearby pedestrians of the car’s presence in low-speed situations”.
Oddly enough the Model Y Pedestrian Warning System, or Model Y noisemaker is non-existant.
