Tesla claims that its Mannequin Y AWD is the “best ‘SUV’ ever constructed”, nevertheless it’s not even Tesla’s best SUV ever made.
As we beforehand reported, Tesla has been far more lively on Twitter since Elon Musk purchased the platform.
Whereas the corporate would beforehand solely use the social media platform to share information and occasions, it now extra typically tweets for much less essential occasions and even simply information about its merchandise and shares constructive tweets from house owners.
Right this moment, Tesla determined to launch a tweet claiming that the Mannequin Y AWD is “probably the most environment friendly electrical SUV ever constructed”:
What’s fairly humorous is that even thought there’s little doubt that Mannequin Y is probably the most environment friendly SUV ever constructed, Tesla determined to particularly point out Mannequin Y AWD, which isn’t even Tesla’s personal best SUV.
Though the tweet says all SUVs ever, the info used within the screenshot solely mentions all-wheel-drive SUVs.
Tesla’s Mannequin Y RWD is definitely considerably extra environment friendly than the Mannequin Y AWD, in line with the EPA:
It’s certainly probably the most environment friendly SUV evet examined by the EPA.
Although some would attempt to kill the argument earlier than even going into the completely different variants of Mannequin Y by arguing in opposition to the truth that the Mannequin Y is an SUV though it may be configured as a 7-seater and it has extra cargo house than many gas-powered SUVs.
Apparently, Tesla may even get a extra environment friendly Mannequin Y with the new Mannequin Y Normal Vary RWD launched in Canada just lately.
With a smaller battery pack, the brand new model may very well be extra environment friendly than the opposite RWD trim, nevertheless it’s not confirmed as it’s rumored to be utilizing LFP battery cells, that are heavier. Subsequently, we must wait till the official numbers come out.
Clearly, I’m simply teasing Tesla right here for the fake pas on social media. There’s little doubt in my thoughts that Tesla does produce probably the most environment friendly SUV on the earth, and we’re simply taking part in with semantics right here.
Anybody who is aware of me is aware of that’s what I like probably the most about Tesla’s electrical autos, their effectivity.
Tesla has been pushing the envelope on that entrance for over a decade now, and I can wait to see the place it might take it as soon as it might refine its 4680 cells and structural battery pack, which ought to be capable of push effectivity to a brand new stage.
