2024 Tesla Model Y (Project Juniper): What we know/expect

  • America's best-selling e-SUV to get its first 'facelift'
  • New Tesla Model Y expected to feature updated exterior and interior
  • Likely to be launched in the U.S. in 2024
  • Could be priced from just over USD 55,000

Tesla plans to give a refresh to the Model Y, the SUV sibling of the Model 3, and begin production of the updated version in 2024, Automotive News reported on March 1, 2023. Codenamed ‘Tesla Juniper,’ the electric SUV could go on sale in the U.S. as the 2024 Tesla Model Y.

Design & Interior

Like the 2024 Tesla Model 3, the 2024 Model Y may feature a mildly updated exterior. Spy pictures of the former suggest it will have newly designed bumpers and wheels. The SUV may come with the same visual changes on the outside. Like today, in addition to a bigger body, fender flares would immediately differentiate it from the sedan.

Inside, the new Model Y may have a redesigned dashboard and a swiveling function touchscreen infotainment system, which is unavailable in the outgoing model. Tesla may improve the quality of materials, introduce a steering yoke option, and install an instrument cluster in the Model Y with the refresh.


We’re yet to know whether the specifications of the 2024 Model Y will be different from the outgoing SUV. The latter is available in two dual-motor AWD variants – Long Range and Performance variants. The Long Range variant can deliver an EPA-est. range of up to 330 miles, accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 155 mph. The Performance variant’s ratings for the same aspects are 303 miles, 3.5 seconds (with the first foot of rollout subtracted), and 155 mph, respectively.

Price & Release date

The 2024 Tesla Model Y may start at a little over USD 55,000. Automotive News claims Tesla aims to begin manufacturing the new Model Y in 2024. Customer deliveries should begin the same year.
