Tesla Model Y: stunning lowered electric SUV by Unplugged Performance

Unplugged Performance took delivery of an early Tesla Model Y and they quickly installed their popular lowering spring… and it looks stunning.

Tesla has just started delivering the Model Y, and some accessory makers and tuners already got their hands on the electric SUV and started releasing parts and accessories.

Jeda already released its Model Y USB hub, which is built on its very popular Model 3 USB hub to connect a drive for Sentry Mode and TeslaCam.

Now Unplugged Performance, one of the most popular Tesla tuners, got its own Model Y, and they quickly adapted their lowering spring kit for the electric SUV:

We have developed the ultimate lowering springs for Tesla Model Y. Our proprietary Dual-Rate Linear technology delivers the best performance in terms of handling, comfort, aerodynamics and of course sporty looks! Our first release — Moderate Springs provide sports car handling, a lower stance, and increased range all without sacrifice to daily comfort.

It not only handles better but it also looks incredible:

Unplugged Performance already sold thousands of lowering kits for the Model 3, and now it is leveraging that experience for the Model Y.

They are selling the Dual-Rate Linear spring kit for $385.

Electrek’s Take

I understand that many people prefer the Model Y over the Model 3 for the higher ground clearance, and this spring kit defies that purpose.

However, there are also many people who don’t care that much about ground clearance, and those people could benefit from better handling, aerodynamic performance, and personally, I think it looks awesome.

Unplugged also plans an option in between called “mild springs”:

Our upcoming second release — Mild Springs provide a comfort-focused ride for those who want a more luxurious ride without reducing ground clearance for off-road use.

That might be the best of both worlds.
