2020 Tesla Model Y Test Results | Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #287

We dedicate this entire episode to sharing our test results of the Tesla Model Y, the all-electric SUV based on the Model 3. We discuss our findings on the Model Y’s handling, off-the-line performance, and charging experience compared to other EVs. We also talk about our experience with the Model Y’s cargo space compared to the Model 3, overall build quality, and whether it is a reliable vehicle, based on our comprehensive reliability survey of CR members.
