When Tesla fans learned that the American automaker is now producing a Standard Range Model Y, many jumped for joy because of the possibility of a more affordable entry-level model. Tesla has only offered Long Range and Performance versions of the Model Y for months.

These limited options are disheartening to many potential buyers because the Model Y is no longer affordable for most average Americans. At one point, the electric SUV had a starting price of just $39,990.

Tesla price fluctuations have become all too common. Model Y prices quickly skyrocketed. Now, the Model Y is one of the most expensive electric SUVs on the market. Some could argue that the Model Y is a luxury compact electric SUV, not a compact SUV, but the nameplate’s many price fluctuations left a bad taste in the mouths of many consumers.

According to Electrek, the Model Y Standard Range starts at $59,990. It can go from 0-60 miles per hour in just five seconds. The Model Y Standard Range AWD gets 279 miles of driving range.

How does the Model Y Standard Range compare to other Model Y configurations?

The Model Y Performance starts at $69,990. it has a 303-mile driving range. The Model Y Performance can go from 0-60 miles per hour in a mind-blowing 3.5 seconds.

There’s a $6,000 difference between the Model Y Standard Range and Model Y Long Range. There’s a range difference of 39 miles between the two electric SUV models.

The Model Y Standard Range still provides plenty of driving range. Potential buyers save $6K by choosing the Standard Range over the Long Range configuration. The Model Y Standard Range is a welcome addition to Tesla’s lineup, but will it attract new buyers?

The Texas-built electric SUV will attract many consumers who were on the fence about shelling out over $60K for a Model Y. Tesla has found a way to produce a more affordable electric SUV that still delivers the quality and performance that the brand is known for.

That being said, it’s tough to forget about the brief period when the Model Y had a starting price of under $40K. There are still plenty of more affordable alternatives to the Model Y Standard Range that offer more value for a more affordable price like the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Limited.
