Tesla Model Y Specifications

Model Y Specs

These official Tesla Model Y Specs are taken from the Tesla website ( src ) and the North American Tesla Model Y Owner’s Manual ( src )

The Model Y comes with a 15inch touchscreen display that is designed to improve over time. Over-the-air software updates will introduce new features, functionality, and performance not just to the touchscreen, but to the vehicle driving dynamics and technology.

The Model Y has a glass roof similar to the Model 3 – Tesla says the “expansive glass roof provides more headroom and UV protection”

With an elevated seating position and low dash, the driver has a commanding view of the road ahead. The interior of Model Y is simple and clean, with a 15-inch touch screen, immersive sound system and an expansive all-glass roof that creates extra headroom and provides a seamless view of the sky.

In the USA owners manual on the Tesla website, they no longer list any weights. They do in the owner’s manual for China, but not specific axle weight ratings. The best way to find this information now is to look on the door sticker on your Tesla Model Y.

Model Y Tow Capacity

The Model Y Towing Capacity is not listed in the owners manual. Instead, there is a note from Tesla stating that the “Model Y is not equipped with towing.”

7 thoughts on “Tesla Model Y Specifications

  1. It appears the width listed (83.8 inches (2129 mm)) is too wide. The Wikipedia page lists 75.6 in (1,920 mm). Haven’t found an independent source, but the Wikipedia number, at about 3″ greater than Model 3, seems closer than the value here which is similar to Cybertruck.

    1. Hi Brian, we have 3 widths listed – overall, with mirrors folded, and without counting mirrors. Without the mirrors is 75.6 inches, which is slightly wider than the 72.8 inches for the Model 3 width without mirrors

  2. Does the 7 seat version have a longer length that the 5 seat version or do they simply fit more seats in the same space?

    1. The external dimensions of the 5-seat and 7-seat versions are the same. The third row seats will be quite small

  3. It appears you have a typo in your rear axle rating for 21’s. Very unlikely the weakest rated rim suddenly leaped so high in its rear axle rating. probably supposed to be “3005”. Please recheck, correct as needed.


    1. It looks like the original info from Tesla has the same ‘3505’ weight, but there isn’t any new data in the owner’s manuals. Updated content to recommend checking door sill sticker for Tesla’s official axle ratings.
