Tesla has updated its configurator to include the Model Y in its lineup.
You can order one now in Singapore and expect it to be delivered later this year.
You can opt for a “base-spec” rear-wheel drive Model Y that starts from S$142,271 without COE. This includes a pearl white paint (the only colour without additional cost), 19-inch wheels and an all-black interior. Only a 5-seater configuration will be offered, regardless of trim level. The Model Y can achieve 455km (WLTP) and sprints from 0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds.
If we tick all the options on the rear-wheel drive Model Y, you’ll have to fork out S$159,612, which is S$17,341 more than a “bare-bones” Tesla Model Y. If we dissect the figures, we’ll start to notice the impact of ARF on its overall price. A red paintwork will cost S$3,000, alongside larger 20-inch wheels at S$3,000. A two-tone (black and white) interior costs S$1,500. $7,500 worth of options will trigger an additional ARF of S$9,841.
The dual motor, all-wheel drive Model Y without options will set you back S$189,995. Versus the rear-wheel drive Model Y on paper, you’ll get 59km more range, a higher top speed and a century sprint of 3.7 seconds.
If you prefer to adopt the more gung ho approach, tick all boxes in the dual motor all-wheel drive Model Y Performance and that adds up to S$201,712 without COE.
There are only two options of upgrades available for the Performance variant - exterior colour choices and a two-tone interior, which makes sense as the standard 21-inch rims are already considered massive to begin with. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the Performance variant to come with a third row option, which will make it a frighteningly fast sub-four seconds family hauler.
A friendly reminder that we’ll have to pay for Tesla’s Superchargers in Singapore, in case we have been getting into the habit of juicing up for free before April this year. And with COE in two categories breaching the six-figure mark, is it time to take the plunge for the Model Y in Singapore, or will you be playing the waiting game?
