They need to stop with their dog taking a dump slope-back designs that offer no utility.

The reality is the lust for SUV's is more about sitting high up and having more ground clearance than it is actual "utility"

No, is it related to having the same useful cargo space as a Civic? Or maybe you mean it needs a big ass wing because downforce, y0!

Yeah! It's considerably more important to be aerodynamic than practical when you have to squeeze every last mile of range out of a design because running out of go-juice means a serious detour and an hour of thumb twiddling

Yo it has more than the necessary useful cargo space, did you miss the underfloor cargo space or the frunk? Yo you should compare it to the E-tron and I-pace as far as range and cargo space . Aerodynamics are hard

Whatever it takes to justify compromises, you'll be there with lips puckered.

Wonder if model 3 suspension will swap into the model y without any issue... actually, I wonder if it's just a strut puck or similar for the lift when compared to a model 3.. either way, a hatchback version would be preferred by me over both a sedan and crossover. Would probably pick up a tiny bit of highway range by lowering it as well.

Why a puck when you can put the mounting points wherever you want?

The model 3 efficiency improves by about 7% with a 1" drop.

In short, for parts sharing; fewer parts need to be designed & manufactured. Tesla could maintain the model 3 suspension geometry/design and use all of the hard parts from the model 3, while only requiring longer bolts and pucks for the struts. They could also utilize the "skateboard" structure from the model 3, with only taller body panels being required; why completely design two models when you can save a boatload of engineering time and money by utilizing what you already have designed?

The Model Y is not going to be an off-road vehicle, it's a tall hatchback that keeps your bumpers from scraping on the parking blocks.

ground clearance for the Model Y is maybe an inch to an inch and a half more.



the performance Model Y has a suspension that lowers it a bit. Not sure what parts are shared with the Model 3, tho.

0.6" looks like rolling diameter difference, so 0.8" of difference somewhere in the suspension/chassis layout; could just be pucks/shims.
