Despite all these regional differences, there is some good news today – Tesla is finally introducing the Standard Range Model Y. This is a single motor RWD model with 204 hp and 350 Nm of torque. The battery is significantly smaller at 50 kWh capacity, but according to the WLTP test cycle, the car is capable of going 455 km on a charge with the standard 19” rims.

It is over 100 km less compared to Long Range Mode Y but in some of the countries in Europe, the car will qualify for local tax incentives due to its lower price and as a result, it will get even cheaper. Just looking at the prices from a few countries – In Belgium the new model starts at €49,990 which is €6,000 cheaper than Long Range.
