Tesla switches from Brembo to Mando for rear brake calipers on Model Y Performance


Tesla has made a number of changes this month to the Model Y built at Fremont. Updated door panels with wood trim has been added to both variants of the electric SUV, and they have also temporarily added the matrix LED headlights to the Long Range variant.

The automaker has now also made a change limited to just the Model Y Performance.

According to information obtained by Drive Tesla all Model Y Performance SUVs built as of August 15, 2022 will have rear brake calipers manufactured by Mando.

Until now Tesla has been using Brembo rear brake calipers on the top-of-the-line Model Y.

Prospective owners shouldn’t worry as Tesla says you are not going to notice this change. There are no visual differences with the new calipers and they do not impact the braking performance of the electric SUV.

This isn’t the first time Mando has supplied brake calipers to Tesla as the rear brakes on both the Model S and Model X are equipped with Mando calipers.
