Beyond Elon’s now famous boutade – the last one linked to Twitter – about iron, that is, about “his” machines, there is no question. In this case, the Tesla Model Y Performance it adds that pinch of flavor (if the 217 km / h and the 5 seconds declared in the 0-100 of the Long Range were not enough) that separates the vehicle in question from most of the electric ones. From the top of its 562 horsepower and the two engines, the Y Performance reaches 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds and can continue – where it is allowed – up to 250. It does not, of course, slip into the territory of a Taycan. : would not have the credentials to do so. But it still offers a nice package, especially considering that the declared range is 514 km. Already orderable, with three months of waiting for delivery, the Performance costs 68,990 euros, 5,000 more than the Long Range.

Not quite soft. From the outside, there are few details that distinguish it: the 21-inch Überturbine wheels, with 255/35 tires, the dedicated braking system (with red calipers) and the suspension with specific calibration. Stiff, I say it right away: thanks to the low shoulder of the Pirelli PZero of the sample under test, the B side is a bit accusing. Not so much on the slow motion bumps or in correspondence with the manholes (you expect it there), but on the very damaged asphalt, dotted with small and medium imperfections: here you jump in a bit annoying, especially at the typical speeds of the state roads. Active suspension would have been good, that’s it.

Electric nerve. There is very little to say about performance: Model Y Performance can be absurdly fast, if you tease it. And, when it comes to turning, it never gets in trouble, quite the contrary. The sensations are similar to those of the Model 3, in terms of handling, even if there is a greater inertia here. Always well controlled. The steering is direct, very responsive (far too much, for my taste) and precise as well. I always find a bit of a videogame feeling, but it’s a matter of nitpicking. In fact, the Performance turns flat and demonstrates unexpected agility, for a crossover of over two tons in running order. Driving calmly, then, it manages to be – net of the aforementioned structure consistency – also quite comfortable, thanks to a more than discreet ability to filter the decibels coming from the rolling of the tires and aerodynamics.

Top assistance. Also noteworthy is the plethora of electronic safety devices. Level 2 assisted driving is standard, while there are two packages available on request: the advanced Autopilot (3,800 euros), which adds features such as automatic overtaking or the car that exits the car park by itself by pressing a button, and the “autonomous driving at maximum potential” package. The latter, for 7,500 euros, adds control of traffic lights and stops: if the cruise control is activated, Model Y can stop by itself in the event of a red light or at stop signs.

The space you need. Being six centimeters longer than the Model 3 (4.5 meters in total), higher than 18 and wider than 7, the Model Y (also in the Performance version) is perfect for the needs of a family of three or four people. Also in terms of trunk: in addition to the practicality of the tailgate, there is a few liters of extra capacity. In the Long Range test (on Quattroruote of October 2021), the Test Center measured a total of 508 behind (also considering the compartment under the loading floor) and 87 in front, in the so-called frunk. The model being tested is equipped with a parcel shelf, not connected to the classic lanyards to the tailgate and therefore liftable by hand.

Apprenticeship. I would have needed more time to thoroughly familiarize myself with the central touch screen, which everything (too much?) Governs once on board, and is not always easily interpretable. Too bad, then, that connectivity is not provided for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as 360-degree cameras. Fascinating (especially for the little ones) are the infotainment games: the Disco mode is worth mentioning. By activating this mode, the car is transformed into a small disco: the side windows are lowered, a loud dance song plays from the audio system, the headlights flash and the tailgate opens and closes to the rhythm of the music. All this lasts a few minutes, just to avoid being hated by the neighbors.
