Two Tesla Model Y’s spotted cold weather testing in Minnesota

Model Y

The road testing of the upcoming Model Y is in full swing, as we seem to get daily sightings of the crossover SUV. Until a recent sighting of a Model Y driving through Donner Pass in California , the Model Y hadn’t been seen driving in snow and ice.

Now two more Model Y’s have been spotted doing some cold weather testing in Minnesota. And as a bonus, they were spotted at the local Supercharger with a Model 3 and Model X parked in between them, making for an excellent size comparison (and photo).

The Model X appears to be slightly taller than the Model Y,  but not by much. The Model X also appears to have a wider stance, with the Model Y looking much more like the Model 3, as it is built on the same general platform as the popular sedan.

Tesla also picked a good weekend to test in Minnesota, as they just experienced a huge snowstorm with 40mph (64km/h) winds in about 0°F (-18°C) temperatures over the weekend. This should give them good data on how the range was impacted by cold temperatures and strong winds, both of which are enemies of EV batteries.
