Such a nicely matched set. You do realize those are nice Stanford colors you have...
Well, if I went to Cal, that might have been a problem. The colors I hate seeing is cardinal and gold. :mad:

I’ve got to ask since we both have the two of the same cars... The SR+ is in fact quicker?

Have not driven the Y yet. Had plans so checked it out and signed papers then jumped in the 3. But assuming same motor and battery the 3 has to be quicker.

Always good to have a mutual hatred of SUC. But I can’t stand blue and gold, even though I went to a UC. My dad went to Stanford and I was born on campus so have much closer ties there.

The reason I ask is because both cars are advertised at 5.3 in the 0-60, which seems off.

Yes, SC is a school that I think everybody dislikes. You know the old saying, you can’t spell Trojan without OJ... 😏

And Stanford is the 1%.

Didn’t get to drive yet but riding along seems about the same. Only 238# GVWR difference so wouldn’t expect too much difference. 5%. So .25 seconds based solely on weight. But maybe there’s slightly more power available? Who knows. Wouldn’t surprise me if Tesla just copied SR 3 data across.

Another question. Did your window sticker say the SR MY has one motor or two? Mine and a few others says two motors.

While I have no proof of it on the SR models.. I've always believed that Tesla has held back a certain degree of performance with ALL of its vehicles. The $2000 acceleration unlock offer on both the 3 & Y LR AWD models proves there is absolute unlocked potential in some models. We've also seen Tesla increase performance through free OTA updates. I would not be surprised if later down the road the SR RWD models also will allow simple unlocking of increased potential when the time & price is right. I'm hoping for free of course lol.

Which means yeah.. while I haven't personally clocked the 0-60 time on my YSR, I have little doubt it truly does produce 0-60 in 5.3 seconds.. and thats without any rollout. One of the most interesting things I've seen and what finally pushed me off the fence to purchase the YSR.. was this video:


As you can see the YLR isn't much quicker than YSR. This was exactly my experience having driven the YLR during a scheduled test drive.

One of the reasons I was so attracted to the MYSR is that it appears to be the best *bang for the buck* vehicle Tesla has ever offered. The Y is already atleast 10% bigger than the 3 all around.. yet the YSR price is only 6.67% larger 3SR+. And the size difference is significantly bigger in the areas that count most.. which are legroom & cargo room. The Y has an additional 5" of rear seat legroom for example, which is priceless for things like a rear facing car seat. And when you fold the seats flat in the Y open cargo area.. it honestly feels TWICE as big as that of the 3.. making its immensely useful for just about anything.. including sleeping/camping in the vehicle.

There are other perks the YSR has over the 3SR+ to justify the rather small price increase. Which include the premium interior, power lift gate & heat pump on every Y sold and optional tow hitch (which I use for my bike rack). I have no idea why Tesla dropped the price of the YSR down to $39,990 and then removed it from the menu just a week later. But Im glad I was able to snag one and grab the savings.

Maybe its biased, but its my personal prediction that YSR will also have the best resale value of any Tesla produced thus far.. for afew reasons:
  • SUV/Crossover type vehicles are currently the best selling product for any manufacturer.. outselling sedans 5:1 (which means they also have inherently better resale value). SUV/Crossovers are so popular.. some manufacturers have said they will stop building sedans period.
  • Depreciation is always lowest on the cheapest/base version of any car. Adding options are nice when buying new.. but generally dont add any extra real world value when selling/trading a used car.
  • Many people who previously chose the 3SR+ OR missed the boat on the YSR.. will still be in the market for a vehicle priced like the YSR when the times comes to upgrade.

After 1200 miles of driving I've found the real world range to be about 150 to 200 miles.. depending on driving conditions, speed & weather. And that is more than enough real world range for 99% of the time people like me drive their vehicle. For the other 1%.. it just means an extra stop or two at a Supercharger for 20mins or so to reach my final destination.

From all accounts the battery in the SR is 55kwh.. and the battery in the LR is 75kwh. Which means the YSR battery pack is only about 25% smaller. Cosindering I'll never need AWD or the quicker performance.. I will gladly take an extra stop or two to Supercharge when needed.. under already rare driving conditions.. to save the rather whopping $10K price increase vs an YLR.

Now if Tesla sold a YLR RWD vehicle.. I probably would be interested given the cheaper price, longer range & increased efficiency vs the YLR AWD. I'd imagine a YLR RWD priced at $45,990 would be an EXTREMELY popular choice among new Y shoppers. Ford sells exactly this version of the Mach-E called the California Route 1 edition and its real world range should be close to 300 miles!!

Well said. The SR MY is a great purchase. I went from being curious about it one morning then ordering one the same afternoon. The car feels so spacious and I really love that audio system.

The speed, it does feel slower than the SR+, from 40-60 I just tap on the gas around 40 and it just moves, the MY SR works a bit harder around those times.

The SR+ does have better range, I’ve noticed the SR MY does eat-up more energy in a shorter time. But as you noted, it has a lot to do with driving conditions and whatnot.

I also took this picture, and it shows not 244 at full charge but 248 😀 but take it for what it’s worth, these things are never accurate. My SR+ now shows like 220 lol.

I’ve got version 11.01. Doesn’t everybody?

Kidding. That’s from my phone not my car. I opened up the app, I clicked on charging and I slid to maximum range and it showed me 248.

Oh okay. Just figured out that you have your battery indicator set to miles.. I have mine set to percentage. So I have no do idea what the maximum estimated range is lol

Pretty easy to change display to miles, then go to charge screen to see 100% range then switch back to percentage.

The window sticker thing has been talked about before. Have fun convincing Tesla to include a second motor in your SR based on a piece of paper. We all know a standard range(or mid or long) RWD does not have two motors no matter what a sheet of paper says.

Book a mobile service appointment and ask the tech to add the missing front motor...:cool:

If it says dual motor on the Monroney sticker then is it federally required that the equipment listed must be included with the car? I thought that was one of the purposes and enforcement of the Monroney sticker?

The Automobile Information Disclosure Act (AIDA), 15 U.S.C. §§ 1231-1233, is more commonly known as the Monroney Act (Senator Mike Monroney was the chief sponsor of the Act) or Price Sticker Act. The Act requires the affixing of a retail price sticker to the windshield or side window of new automobiles indicating the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), that is, the "sticker price." Additional information, such as a list of any optional equipment offered or transportation charges, is also required.

The Federal Trade Commission publishes a fact sheet entitled Buying a New Car, that has additional information.

The AIDA was amended in an effort to improve the dissemination of New Car Assessment Program ratings when the United States Department of Transportation issued a regulation in 2006, 49 C.F.R. 575.301, that required new car crash safety information, known as “Stars on Cars,” to be on the Monroney label. Gold stars appear on the Monroney label, ranging from 1-5, with more stars denoting greater safety to help consumers evaluate a car’s crash worthiness, see http://www.safercar.gov, for more information.

Automobiles, by definition, include passenger vehicles and station wagons, and by extension passenger vans and similar vehicles, such as Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs). Not included, as explained in the legislative history, are pick-up trucks.

The Act prohibits the sticker from being removed or altered prior to sale to a consumer. Criminal prosecution is possible under 15 U.S.C. § 1233, for the willful removal of a label and is punishable as a Class A misdemeanor permitting a fine ($100,000 per violation for an individual and $200,000 per violation for an organization under 18 U.S.C. § 3571) as well as imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.

Under a related statute, 49 U.S.C. § 32908, manufacturers and importers of new automobiles, including each category of vehicle identified above and pick-up trucks, are required to affix a label to such vehicles with an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) label containing fuel economy information. See EPA website. Normally, the price sticker label and EPA label are combined as one large label. Failure to maintain the EPA label on the vehicle is considered a violation of AIDA. There are no private remedies under either Act.

CPB enforces AIDA, most commonly, by sending warning letters to dealerships alleged to have violated the Act. CPB also advises consumers of alternative avenues of redress where allegations have been made that a price sticker or EPA label is missing or altered.
