I figured I'd start this discussion for those of us who may be disappointed in the Model 3, and are considering delaying entering the Electric Vehicle "club" because I/we may choose to wait instead for the Model Y.
In my case, my daily driver is a I.C.E. "crossover" called the KIA Sportage. It was built in 08/08, so it's a 2009 model year that we bought used from a dealer. It's paid for, and it's functional. But, it holds absolutely ZERO loyalty in my heart. Why? Partly because the driver's seat is horrible for long (325-ish mile) road trips. The money we were spending on car payments (plus a bit more) is now instead going into separate savings account for a Tesla.
But... [insert drum roll sound here] I was able to get a tow hitch/receiver installed onto it.
If you look at this Youtube video from "OCDetailing"...
Jump forwards to 3:07, and you will see the IMPLICATION that the Model 3 does not have a tow receiver.
I concede that this is a feature that may not yet be available in only the initial run of vehicles.
But... If it turns out to not be available later on, standard or optional... [insert groan sound effect from Addams Family's Lurch character here] ...that would mean the "3" is not for me (rhyme not intended).
I'm already fearing the lack of storage space in a smaller size sedan that the 3 is versus the space in a Kia Sportage.
If one throws in the lack of a tow receiver and/or the additional cost for one, hmmm... I may have to wait for a Model Y, and HOPE that it turns out to be something similar to my Sportage.
What say you people?
* Does anyone else have similar apprehension about the 3 versus the Y ???
* What are your concerns?
p.s.: I've also just learned about the Nissan "eNV200". Maybe that would normally be a competitor except for one thing: That 325-ish mile road trip I mentioned above? There are ZERO (non-Tesla) fast DC chargers (CCS or CHAdeMO) along our route. Time will tell...
