Trying out the Tesla Model Y, comparing it to my Model 3!

I was eager to try the Model Y, as a Model 3 owner for over a year and a half. Used Model 3 values are holding up really well, so a trade-in is very appealing!

I wanted to have the Model Y for a full day to test it out on my own terms, so I rented it from a really cool San Diego company called Pacific Ride Rentals that only rents out Teslas! They have all Teslas currently in production available to rent.

I know some people might balk at the idea of calling a $50,000 car “affordable,” and I don’t blame you. The plan for this model was for the price to eventually get close to $40,000 much more reasonable considering the median US car price of about $35,000.

Overall, my opinion is that because of the superior experience, technology, and value retention of Teslas and this car in particular, $40,000 makes it a no-brainer, $45,000 is a good deal, and $50,000 is worth at least considering.

The price including options for this specific car is $60,000, and includes:

20″ induction wheels ($2,000)
Full self driving capability ($8,000)

Hope you enjoy the video!
