YouTuber Gjeebs has shared a video revealing the economic benefits of owning a Tesla Model Y. In his ownership review, he compared the Model Y to other gas and electric cars in the same price range, explaining why the Model Y stands out.
Gjeebs owns a Tesla Model Y Long Range, which starts at $50,490, has 330 miles of EPA-estimated range, and accelerates from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds.
He starts the video by mentioning that the Model Y is almost on par with the average passenger car price in the US, which is $48,008. The standard Model Y, with 279 miles of EPA-estimated range, and a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds, starts at $47,490, which according to Gjeebs is a bargain compared to similarly priced gas cars thanks to lower service and charging costs.
