In our testing, the Model Y Performance managed a quick 3.6-second zero-to-60-mph run and managed a 12.1-second quarter-mile time at 113 mph.

Those seeking to couple the speed of the Performance model with the Model Y’s optional third row of seats, however, will be disappointed to learn that the seven-passenger configuration is not available on the hi-po trim.
