Tesla has drastically downgraded the Mannequin Y’s audio system from 13 to 7 audio system and apparently removed the subwoofer.
Happily, it’s only for the fundamental model.
Through the years, Tesla has invested closely in high quality audio for its autos. The automaker employed engineers from Pop & Olufsen and different main audio manufacturers.
It resulted within the sound system within the Mannequin 3 and Mannequin Y being effectively obtained by audiophiles.
However it’s potential that it will not be the case.
Tesla has determined to considerably downgrade the sound system within the Mannequin Y RWD, its hottest automobile.
The automaker has up to date its on-line configurator and now the audio part (first noticed by Drive Tesla Canada):
- Customized Audio – 7 audio system, 1 amplifier and immersive sound
- Premium audio – 13 audio system, 1 subwoofer, 2 amplifiers and immersive sound
That is six fewer audio system and no extra subwoofer.
The ‘premium audio’ remains to be commonplace on the Twin Motor and Efficiency variations of the Mannequin Y.
The downgrade seems to be one other cost-cutting effort by Tesla. The corporate is making an attempt to decrease the worth of its autos whereas sustaining its industry-leading gross margin.
It is a fairly drastic downgrade. I am curious to see how this impacts the sound high quality within the Mannequin Y RWD.
Tesla is not the kind to supply an improve package deal. It’s possible that the automaker would favor patrons to purchase the Twin Motor model as a substitute.
Or will Tesla maybe provide extra choices once more? We’ll have to attend and see.
