Munro also performed a teardown of the electric sedan soon after it was released, and was not kind in his criticism of Tesla, likening the quality to that of a 90’s Kia.
In his video looking at the suspension of the Model Y (below), Munro found the electric SUV had a very similar suspension design as the Model 3, but was “much beefier”. This is likely due to the heavier weight of the Model Y compared to the Model 3.
The rear suspension revealed some interesting insights, including that some of parts are shared with the Model 3, with them even being labelled as for the Model 3.
According to Munro, the changes all contribute to an overall better suspension system than the Model 3. In an interview with Bloomberg Technology, he said “I thought this thing handled really well. I liked it; it was like riding on rails.”
