We all know the Model 3 has been out for around 3 years at this point, and a few things have changed in it periodically. Tesla doesn’t do the standard annual updates of a car, instead, when they decide to change it, they just change it on the assembly line.
Which brings us to the first reason you shouldn’t buy a Model Y in 2020, the heat pump. Electric cars notoriously lose substantial amounts of range when driving in cold weather, with different estimates showing the Model 3 losing as much as 40% of its range in colder climates.
Well, in the Model Y, Tesla added a new revolutionary part, the heat pump.
With the Model Y and Model 3 sharing around 70% of the parts, most people are expecting the Heat Pump to be added to the Model 3 at some point in the near future.
Tesla’s battery day is a shareholder meeting for investors that has been hyped up by Elon Musk for months, has been delayed, and is finally scheduled for September 22nd.
There are a number of innovations we expect to hear about from Tesla on battery day. The first would be the official announcement of Tesla’s million mile battery. We are also expected to hear about Tesla’s secret Roadrunner project.
Another element of battery production we expect to hear about is Tesla lessening or eliminating the need for cobalt in their batteries.
And then we expect to hear about Tesla’s work with Maxwell Technologies, and how their dry electrode technology could allow Tesla to get more range out of smaller batteries.
With battery day about a month away, it’s definitely best to wait and see what they announce before buying a new Model 3, which could soon get a massive battery improvement.
Speaking of a much better Model 3, there are a few massive improvements that Tesla made when taking the Model 3 infrastructure and building it into the Model Y
The first is the Rear Casting which is now 2 pieces as opposed to 70 on the Model 3.
The next improvement Tesla made on the Model Y is this front “tusk” that Sandy Munro talked about when tearing down the Model 3. In a front collision this could drastically improve the structure of the Model Y, and make it even safer than the Model 3..
So this improvement could be exclusive to the Model Y, or it could be something they add to the Model 3 out of the blue, just like those USB-C ports.
So the current Tesla Model 3 lineup is Standard Range + starting at $37,990, and LR AWD starting at $46,990.
The standard range + gets an EPA estimated range of 250 miles, and The Long Range AWD gets an EPA range of 322 miles.
Now if range is your focus, and priority, here’s why I don’t think you should buy a Model 3, even the Long range one.
Elon took to twitter to give us an update about the Rear Wheel Drive Model Y hinting that it would have a range well over 300 miles, and a price point of $45,000. Now we haven’t gotten the official range yet, but based on old estimates, and the difference in range between RWD and AWD on the Model 3, most people expect this Model Y Rear Wheel Drive to get a range of 335 miles. And it should be coming within the next few months, especially since many people already have their pre-orders in for this car, since the announcement back in March of 2019.
The only differences of course being that you’d only have RWD, and you’d have a slower 0-60.
We’ll hear way more after Battery Day on September 22nd, and I’ll be sure to keep you posted so make sure you’re subscribed to this channel for those updates.
Another important improvement on the Model Y over the Model 3 is towing capacity. The Model Y tows 3500 pounds compared to the Model 3 at 2000 pounds. So if towing is important to you, you might want to research what all you’ll be towing, and decide if the extra 1500 pounds you can tow on the Model Y are important to have.
