The Model Y is the first Tesla vehicle to come with a heat pump.
As recently revealed, the Tesla Model Y offers a thing, that may seem not too important, but this is the Model Y’s peculiarity making it different from other Teslas.
We’re speaking about a heat pump used in the Model Y, while the S, 3, X are equipped with a resistance heater. So, the Y is the first Tesla vehicle with the heat pump, which will not be out of place at frigid temperatures.
Its greatest advantage is efficiency: heat pumps are three times more efficient than resistance heaters!
The heat pump allows people in cold climates to get the most range out of the battery and, at the same time, feel comfortable inside the car.
