Detailed pictures of the Tesla Model Y interior have leaked at last
Yes, you are inside the Tesla Model Y interior, the default black interior, looking at the pictures that @mrleetesla posted on his Twitter account we reckon that the Tesla Model Y interior is way more expansive than the Model 3 interior, looks gorgeous — Tesla’s experience with the Model X SUV and Model 3 sedan has given us a masterpiece.
If we closely look at the door panels, part of it is Alcantara, no doubt about it — the center console and the center armrest are also in black and in the above picture look wider than the one in the Model 3 but it just might be the camera angle.
The center console is also covered with a sheet and tape so we cannot see if it has the same infamous black piano finish or a matte one, because the piano finish has plagued the Tesla Model 3 owners and it needs to be handled with caution otherwise it can be easily ruined, best solution is to wrap it as soon as you can.
New interesting stuff revealed by these pictures and confirmed by Mr. Lee is that the USB ports you see in the first picture above are actually USB-C (USB 3.1), the smaller Type-C connector can be plugged-in there like your smartphone. Additionally, there are two 12-volt sockets in the back which is actually one more than the Model 3.
The trunk of the Model Y which we recently saw in another recently leaked photo is confirmed to have a powered liftgate — unfortunately, this Model Y production-intent unit did not have the 3rd-row seats as we only saw it in an early prototype vehicle only.
Tesla has started alerting Model Y owners to get ready for the delivery of their vehicles in March, the first ones to get their Y will be the ones who ordered the Performance variant, next comes the AWD and that should be it for now with a single assembly line. A good number of deliveries of the Model Y SUVs is expected as we recently witnessed the production Tesla Model Y units piling up at the Tesla Fremont factory lot.
Additional pictures can be seen in the following tweets by the Model 3 owner who happened to have the same blue color as the Model Y that he grabbed a chance to get us a closer look inside the Tesla Model Y.
