If the Y isn't here till end of 2021, then any e-Wagon isn't going to be here for a long time. 

 

 

Audi e-tron is more wagon shaped than SUV.

Looks like ICE for me this time around. It's a shame, I'd really like to go EV, but the Y isn't practical enough compared to a wagon. I am going to guess they also won't be magically overcoming the physics of a higher center of gravity with all the downsides of that.

 

 

EVs famously have a much lower center of gravity due to the batteries (usually) being in the floor of the vehilce. There is a video showing attempts to roll a Model X using a soil trip and being unable to.

 

Is it cargo capacity that is the issue? The Model Y is rated at 1800L of cargo capacity...a Ford Mondeo wagon by comparison has a max cargo space of around 1600L

Mmm I'm very tempted to put down a deposit when orders open.
The boot is the big draw for me.
Boot worries are the only thing holding me back from M3.
Having said that I will try to borrow a colleagues m3 and see how suitcase loading goes..

'Good size' is relative depending on need!

 

The 3's boot size means it's not a suitable option for me (would have to take all our cr@p when we go on holiday, for example), but the apparently considerably larger boot of the Y means that could well be a goer.

 

I read "15 cubic feet of cargo space" vs 65 for the 3 vs Y, but assume the latter includes the back with the seats down?

 

Has anyone got real-world figures of actual boot (and froot, I guess) capacity, ie what the Y will take when the back seats are up and in use?

You'll see a heap of info on the Y soon, way before you need to worry about (or probably can) ordering

I wouldn't expect them to be here until mid next year at the earliest. We won't get them until all config are available in the US.

The SR RWD version will probably be arriving in the US late this year...I'd be surprised if the LR RWD ever gets made. I'll be doubly surprised if it makes it here since that version of the Model 3 never did
