Jay Leno on Tesla Model Y, “I love American Made Stuff, and it’s a Classic Example”

What a review. American Made muscle?! Electric car made by Tesla is creating electricity in the auto industry like never thought possible. TV personality and motor enthusiast Jay Leno only had good things to say about the Tesla Model Y.

“This is an innovative company,” said Leno as he explained the strides Tesla has made in the auto industry.

When Tesla released its first model, the Roadster, in 2008, many critics were quick to assume that a European company would soon take control of the EV market–they were wrong. Years later, Tesla is the most valuable car company in the world and they have gone on to produce a wide range of vehicles, the most recent being the Model Y, a compact luxury SUV.

“I’ve driven a lot of European electric vehicles. They don’t have the range, they don’t have the power. Most of them were $30,000 to $60,000 more [than a Tesla]” explained Leno.

Like Leno says, it doesn’t look like gas cars will be going away any time soon. However, the Model Y gives gas cars a run for their money in a number of areas like efficiency, noise level, and environmental friendliness. Not to mention, it’s proudly Made in USA!
