Range variation 2013 Model S vs 2021 Model Y


Feb 21, 2017
Midlothian, TX
I am current trading in my old Model S for a new long range model Y. The model S was fairly predictable in range variation on highway traveling and such. The range hit, normally, was not too bad unless there was a significant headwind. How does the Model Y compare? Do you find significant differences? I know quite a bit about speed and range variation (Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, & Chevy Bolt as well as the Model S), I just want to understand the variations in comparison. I.e. the Leaf lost significant range on the highway.
