Tesla’s Model Y Now Offered With No Rear Seats For Commercial Use

If you’ve ever wished that Tesla would make a van that could be used for commercial use, you’re in luck. The company has announced a special version of its Model Y electric vehicle that removes the back seats and instead offers a larger loading bay for storing anything from luggage to goods.

The EV is designed for use as a commercial vehicle and as such is eligible for commercial vehicle taxation.

That’s according to Clément Maguet, Senior Account Manager at Tesla, after he announced the new Model Y variant in a post on LinkedIn that was spotted by Electrek.

The commercial Model Y is only available in France and no pricing has been shared, but those who are interested in picking one up can reach out to Tesla’s fleet unit.

Tesla has developed a 2-seater Model Y with a storage capacity of 2,158 liters and offering a range of up to 565 km (WLTP cycle). This model is eligible for commercial vehicle taxation.

By removing the back seats Tesla has been able to increase the storage capacity considerably while also extending the range by around 30 kilometers when compared to the highest-rated consumer version of the Model Y. So far there has been no confirmation that Tesla intends to offer this new version of the Model Y globally, but we have to imagine that could happen if the EV is well-received in France.
