Tesla Model Y update coming soon – what to expect?

TSLA Tesla Elon Musk

With the updated Model 3 “Highland” already available in parts of the world, an updated Model Y will follow.

A future update of the Model Y dubbed “Juniper” was reported by Reuters earlier this year.

And Motor Trend said on Friday that it believes a Model Y update is not too far off in 2024.

MT expects the following for the Model Y, which mirrors updates in the Model 3 Highland:

  • New front and rear fascias
  • Tweaked body panels
  • Updated wheel designs
  • New colors
  • Improved build quality
  • Reduced noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) / added acoustic glass
  • Changes to the suspension geometry, suspension bushings, and rear subframe mount
  • Reworked cabin

The Model Y update should prove to be more consequential than the Model 3 Highland update simply because the Model Y is now one of the hottest vehicles globally.

Earlier this year, the Model Y became the first EV to become the world’s best selling car, outselling the Toyota Corolla in the first quarter — despite being almost double the price of the Corolla.

In the U.S., new data from Experian shows that, with the exception of the perennially bestselling Ford F-150, the Model Y was the bestselling vehicle through the first nine months of 2023.

And in the third quarter the Model Y retained the top spot in the California new vehicle market, dwarfing all other EVs and gas-powered cars. California is the biggest EV market in the U.S. and one of the largest in the world.
