Tesla Model Y battery housing compared to Model 3 by Sandy Munro

Ever considering that Tesla unveiled the Model Y, supporters have in contrast each individual accessible spec to the Model three sedan the crossover is dependent on. Tesla Raj has dissected each individual characteristic adjust from tow hook to coat hooks, OCDetailing in contrast usability and paint finishes, and Tesla software investigator Greentheonly identified the Model Y utilizes unique computer system chips with more quickly Ethernet than all those uncovered in the Model three. Enter producing marketing consultant Sandy Munro, who currently declared the Model Y “a far cry from almost everything we saw on the Model three.”

Munro’s undertaken a entire teardown of a Model Y which is up to 26 YouTube episodes so far. In episode 24, Munro in contrast the crossover’s battery to the battery from his teardown of a Model three, noting several distinctions in the detailing. It should be made crystal clear up entrance that the Model three is from 2018, and not possessing disassembled a newer model, Munro admits he does not know what modifications the at any time-tinkering Tesla could have made in the sedan’s unit to match the Model Y. 

The modifications get started on top of the battery pack housing. The bulb seal about the Model three pack is gone, with a lesser foam pack in its location in which the battery fulfills the underside of the chassis casting. Across the surface area of the housing, the Model three has a few significant pieces of die-lower fiber padding that sit inside of a few depressions in the stamping. The padding’s disappeared on the Model Y, changed by 4 strips of foam isolators, a much much less pricey option. At the entrance of the pack among the electronics, Tesla engineers eradicated the AC filter wire harness trough, terminal caps on the large-voltage protection switches, and a protective cover for a trio of fuses. As with the transfer to foam isolators, all those revisions appear to be to be illustrations of cutting expenditures in ways that would not have an effect on the client practical experience. There’s a single example of a adjust that provides price, that becoming the large-voltage port now fashioned from aluminum in its place of plastic. Munro has nothing terrible to say about any of the new features of the Model Y housing and electronics. 

The entire sequence is intriguing, another spotlight becoming episode sixteen evaluating Model three and Model Y motors, because Munro appears to be at motors from the Nissan Leaf, Audi E-Tron, Jaguar I-Rate, Chevy Volt and Bolt, BMW i3, and Toyota Prius before diving into the Teslas.
