Not seen a charging point on any home around here, but there are 3 in a nearby garden centre. They are the only public ones I have seen anywhere near here. I saw one private one in a bus company yard that I know about 15 miles away, as they have a small electric car their drivers use when doing on-the-road changeovers.
Well deliveries are set to start to customers in the U.S. for the Tesla Model Y, this is the car that is going to sell in even more numbers than the Model 3.
Strange thing is according to the Model Y handbook which is now available online to download, there is no towing capacity given, as is the case for the U.S. version of the Model 3.
No doubt like the European version of the Model 3, the Model Y will be available with factory fit tow bar and hopefully a higher towing capacity than the a Model 3 which is 910kg (Braked) 750kg (none Braked).
Good news is that my 12v Kettle (Waeco MCK750) will work OK in the Model Y as the 12v socket is rated to 12amp constant and 16amp peak.
The Model Y should start to arrive in the U.K. sometime next year, but it will be a few years after that before I get to own one.
I've had a car with a tight turning circle and 'fast' steering, a smart forfour.
Going forwards was OK and 180 degree turns on narrow streets were a breeze, but it was actually a nightmare to reverse out of spaces as the wheels turn a very long way with minimal movement of the wheel, a bit like a dodgem. I hated it.
Yep daveyjp, I kinda get the no parcel shelf thing, with the tinting on the windows being so dark.
Although I believe that there is already a third party parcel shelf in the making.
The storage space on the “Y” does look awesome, and I don’t think many people will be ordering the car with the rear third row of seats.
As for not having a Spare Wheel, so many cars don’t have them these days it’s almost becoming the norm, but even I would prefer a Space Saver Wheel, rather than nothing at all, maybe you will be able to source an aftermarket Space Saver Wheel.
Apart from that I think that the “Y” is the best affordable car ever produced by Tesla,
and sales will vastly outnumber that of the Model 3.
