Automobile benchmarking aggregation Munro & Associates is able-bodied accepted for accepting criticised the Tesla Archetypal 3, with architect Sandy Munro calling the car’s affection flaws agnate to “A Kia In The “90s.” But now Munro has a Tesla Archetypal Y, and afterwards attractive at it and talking with Munro experts, I’m assertive that it is abundant bigger from the Archetypal 3 on which it is based.
The Tesla Archetypal Y wasn’t broken bottomward aback I had a attending at it, but I still got to airing about with Munro Admiral Cory Steuben, who showed me some standout abstruse features, decidedly ones that alter from the Archetypal 3. Let’s booty blink at the absorbing accouterments that I saw, and that Munro’s architect Sandy apparent afterwards I left.
One of the capital criticisms that Sandy accurate about the aboriginal Tesla Archetypal 3 that his aggregation analysed was the way its rear anatomy anatomy was put calm with a collection of rivets, welds, and fasteners, and how the caster wells were fabricated of far too abounding pieces, as Wards Auto credibility out:
Walking associates of the Automotive Press Assn. over that Archetypal 3’s body-in-white actuality at his firm’s Detroit-area headquarters, Munro credibility out self-piercing rivets in the block area/rear of the car that are inexplicably aloft and lowered, as able-bodied as an abnormal mix of accepted and concentric-circle aluminium atom welds and riv-nut and clinch-nut fasteners. Of the latter, Munro says, “I don’t accept the account there.”
He additionally credibility out nine altered genitalia accomplish up the caster wells, a adverse to what commonly would be a single-piece anatomy in best vehicles, and addendum laser-made beachcomber welds are acclimated in lieu of atom welds and self-piercing rivets on the aerial aperture arena on the larboard commuter ancillary of the car.
Motor Trend additionally did a breakdown of Munro’s criticism of the Archetypal 3’s anatomy structure. From the site:
Luggage Well—This able-bodied is composed of abundant metal stampings that are time arresting to anatomy and assemble. Munro recommends replacing this able-bodied with a simpler structural blended tub.
The aback end of the car was aloof far too circuitous and independent too abounding pieces and abutting methods. It didn’t allegation to be that way. Munro says it beatific a book of hundreds of accomplishment advance account to Tesla and, at atomic according to the benchmarking company, it appears Tesla paid attention.
Musk alike Tweeted his acknowledgment for Munro’s ideas:
Among the changes to the Y over the 3 is the accession of a nylon drop-in rear burden tub.
That nylon tub makes the rear allotment of the anatomy decidedly simpler compared to the multi-piece tub on the 3. It’s artlessly anchored into the body, and is easier to alter if needed, Steuben told me.
“When I saw the Tesla 3, I really, absolutely was atramentous with the way that they did the aback end of the car…I saw hundreds of genitalia that shouldn’t accept been there. I was absolutely unhappy,” Sandy says in a contempo video on his company’s new YouTube channel, Munro Live.
“I appropriate that they get rid of the aluminium cossack that I couldn’t alike calculation the cardinal of genitalia central of it. But they’ve taken that and pulled it out…we fabricated a advancement to go to commodity like this. We anticipate this is a nylon with canteen abounding boot, one piece, bead it in, all done,” he continues.
Talking about the rear area of the car that acclimated to be fabricated of far too abounding components, Sandy brand what Tesla has done. “This…gigantic aluminium casting that takes up apparently a third of the aback end of the car, I am absolutely captivated with,” he says, pointing out holes casting into the pan that should advice Tesla band up the casting to get it in absolutely the appropriate atom every time.
The Tesla Archetypal Y has 1.1 inches of added arena approval compared with the Archetypal 3, and it’s got a brace of inches of added clue width. Plus, the SUV weighs about 300 pounds added than the 3, so artlessly you’d apprehend there to be some abeyance differences amid the two.
And indeed, there are some.
As Sandy credibility out in the video below, the advanced abeyance geometry—using a basal council arbor as is accepted in sports sedans (the new BMW 3 Series uses a agnate setup)—looks abundantly the same, admitting the casting aluminium ascendancy accoutrements are altered (even absolute altered allotment numbers), and Tesla has afflicted out some zip ties in favour of bolts to authority a damper to the aerial ascendancy arm.
Here’s that damper on the Archetypal 3. Yes, it’s absolutely aloof a accumulation beggared to the aerial ascendancy arm. This is alleged a “tuned accumulation damper,” and its job is to abate vibrations/noise entering the berth by alteration the ascendancy arm’s accustomed abundance so that it doesn’t “line up” with the abundance of accordance apparent in the car, as this could account “constructive interference.”
I batten with with clairvoyant Dylan Thanushyan—who’s spent time as a anatomy architect for Jaguar and McLaren, amid added companies—to accretion added acumen into what I ability be attractive at here. Here’s what Thanushyan told me:
If it’s physically alone absorbed by those cable ties, it’s acceptable to be a backward accession of accumulation damper (hence the adapter method, and acceptable to be revisited in afterwards models).
Im abiding an NVH claim may accept articular a babble alteration action through the UCA (especially attractive at its design) into the shock belfry and ultimately assignment its way into the addressee cabin. I bet that accumulation suppresses some affectionate of babble or beating accustomed a assertive active case.
It’s not aberrant to see ample OEMS throwing assorted accumulation dampers like this throughout the vehicle. Could calmly be abhorred with the absolute process.
Here’s a attending at how the Archetypal Y bankrupt up the design. Admitting the accumulation damper remains, the rather base attractive zipties are now gone, replaced by some torx screws (later Archetypal 3s additionally got torx screws, I’m told):
You’ll additionally apprehension in the photos aloft that the formed animate aerial ascendancy arm has some affectionate of fiber on its underside. This bureaucracy looks absolutely agnate to the steel/nylon aerial ascendancy accoutrements apparent in the new Ram 1500 “DT” that we showed at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Munro accepted to me that this is a animate and artificial ascendancy arm in the 3 and Y.
As for the rear abeyance geometry, it’s abundantly aggregate with the Archetypal 3. In fact, the lower ascendancy accoutrements in the photo aloft are labelled “Model 3,” so they’re accepted genitalia amid the two vehicles—a acute way to save on cost, Sandy notes.
The blow of the rear abeyance links attending the aforementioned amid the 3 and Y, except for one that Munro & Associates labels the “upper angled articulation ascendancy arm.” You can see how it’s aloof a dogbone-style on the Archetypal 3 Long Range:
And on the Tesla Archetypal Y Achievement it’s got a added complex, formed appearance instead of accepting the end of the dogbone anchored to the tubular bar:
Here’s a afterpiece look:
It’s account acquainted that some Archetypal 3s additionally acclimated this formed link. Steuben says Tesla acceptable fabricated this change at some point afterwards Munro’s aboriginal Archetypal 3 was built.
As for changes to the Y’s clue amplitude and ride height, Steuben wasn’t absolutely abiding area those geometry differences came from. Admitting abounding of the “dogbone” rear abeyance ascendancy accoutrements attending the same, there’s a adventitious they accept altered lengths than the archetypal 3’s.
Munro’s admiral did agenda that the advanced address and rear caster caster address carrier (or “rear knuckle” as Munro calls it) are absolutely altered than those of the 3, and it’s acceptable that it’s actuality that the Archetypal Y assets abundant of its added clue width.
As for how the Y acquired 1.1 inches of ride acme over the 3, that’s not bright yet either. According to Steuben, the Archetypal S and X accept accepted rear abeyance cradles and altered cradles up front, so it’s accessible that the Y and 3 allotment a rear subframe as well, but that the absolute ascent credibility are lower on the Y’s body. (In added words, instead of accepting spacers amid the subframe and the anatomy to accretion ride height, the anatomy itself could accept spacers “built in,” so to speak). We’ll apprentice added aback Munro starts disturbing into the suspension.
One bit of engineering that Steuben was agog to point out to me was the calefaction pump. Such a arrangement is not altered to Tesla, as Nissan offers commodity like it in its Leaf and VW additionally has a calefaction pump in its MEB vehicles. Still, admitting we didn’t get into the system’s details, Steuben did curiosity at its packaging.
“This accomplished calefaction pump is packaged in the amplitude of a attache and it’s incredible,” he told me, activity on to say that the blueprint is “second to none.”
The calefaction pump’s job is to use ambient air and calefaction from the vehicle’s powertrain to balmy up the cabin, preventing the agent from accepting to await on a attrition aspect that saps up adored accepted from the battery. It about works like an air conditioning arrangement in reverse, and is a abundant way to add ambit in the winter time. VW has a calefaction pump on its e-Golf, and describes it thusly:
…offered as an add-on bore for the electric heating (high-voltage heater) and the electric air conditioning compressor, the calefaction pump utilises both the calefaction from the ambient air and the calefaction accustomed off by the drive arrangement components. In this way the high-voltage heater’s burning of electric ability is decidedly reduced. Through use of the calefaction pump the e-Golf’s ambit increases in winter by up to 20 per cent.
Here’s Nissan’s basal calefaction pump diagram. Apprehension that electricity at “2″ is actuality acclimated to abbreviate the refrigerant that has best up calefaction from its source. This increases the refrigerant’s temperature afore it enters the berth heater, which improves ambit in the winter by abbreviation assurance on attrition heating.
Sandy Munro, in his video, shows off how the Archetypal Y’s arrangement is packaged in the car, aloof beneath the cowl. He additionally compares the compressor to that of the Archetypal 3:
Missing from the Archetypal Y’s compressor—which, it’s account noting, is abandoned from the anatomy to accumulate its accordance from affecting berth comfort—is a cream cover. Sandy says he’s heard some complaints about the Y’s compressor noise, and Steuben tells me the calefaction pump has the compressor blame on absolutely a bit added generally than it does on the 3 (which makes sense).
As Sandy notes, it’d be absorbing to see if a Archetypal 3-esque cream awning on the abandoned Y compressor, apparent below, could accept bargain some of these complaints.
Munro’s aboriginal archetype of a Tesla Archetypal 3 (it was VIN #1,100) got bashed adamantine for its fit and accomplishment issues, but Munro has been abundantly afraid with the Y’s advance over its abate sibling, with Steuben apropos to the car’s fit and accomplishment as “really great.”
The rear bear isn’t perfect, though. We abstinent the gap amid the two genitalia of the larboard taillight, and came up with a 2mm reading.
On the appropriate side, that amount grew to about 6 mm.
Granted, the Y has a behemothic auto door, so you’d apprehend it to be difficult to get perfect, abnormally because that the lights adapter area adds accession factor, as well. It’s account advertence that in agreement of flushness, both abandon were about the aforementioned at 2 mm amid the close and alien area of the taillight. How any of this compares to the competition, I don’t know, but the 2mm to 6mm basin does assume high.
The console gaps about the ancillary doors were absolutely absolutely good, Steuben told me:
He alike mentioned that the axle for the rear bear looked appealing decent, adage abounding automakers would crave a trim allotment in this approach to adumbrate imperfections:
I will say that I did apprehension a acrylic bead at the tip of the passenger’s ancillary fender abreast the light:
Despite not actuality perfect, Steuben told me, “…the Archetypal Y, as a whole, [is] appealing acceptable from a fit and accomplishment perspective.”
On top of that, Munro credibility out improvements to the anatomy welds over the Archetypal 3. On the 3, Munro acclaimed self-piercing rivets installed from altered directions, poor affection atom welds, and a aberrant mix of sinusoidal welds, atom welds, and self-piercing rivets on the aperture flange. From Motor Trend’s attending at Munro’s breakdown:
Alternating Self-Piercing Rivets—These carefully spaced rivets are alternately installed from the top and bottom. The Munro aggregation is blind of a structural account brought by this added complexity.
Overpowered Atom Welds—These attrition atom welds in animate appearance affirmation of too abundant electrical power, which has acquired aqueous metal to aerosol out. This affair may accept aback been resolved, as Munro was evaluating an early-production example, but Tesla could not affirm if that was the case.
Rear Aperture Opening—There is a analytical mix of sine-wave tig adjustment forth the roof rail, atom welds forth the B-pillar and rocker, and self-piercing rivets forth the (extra large) border abreast the caster opening. The rivets may be all-important to accompany animate and aluminium, but a simpler architecture all-embracing would save cost.
As Sandy says in the video below, the Archetypal 3’s welds “looked like some array of a science project.”
But the Archetypal Y is different. “The break is great, the bend is perfect,” he says of the welds on the aperture flange, adage any automaker would be blessed to accept these kinds of welds on their cars. He additionally addendum how the self-piercing rivets all appear from aloof a distinct direction. “I’m really, absolutely afflicted with that,” he says.
The Tesla Archetypal Y’s advanced seats sit on “seat risers” to access disciplinarian ride acme while acceptance the car to use the aforementioned seat/seat bracket architecture as the Archetypal 3. Seat risers aren’t absolutely atypical for the auto industry, admitting the Y’s are appealing tall. Here’s a attending from aback to front. Apprehension how there’s an HVAC aqueduct and a bright aisle anon to the pedals:
Munro took the seats and attic out to accept a attending at the risers. They’re aloof unpainted animate brackets anchored to the floor. Fairly simple:
Those brackets are covered by a big allotment of carpeting and broadcast polypropylene, a cream that acts to accession the advanced floor, aback it sits rather low (remember, the vehicle’s ride acme isn’t abundant college than the Archetypal 3’s (1.1 inches of added arena clearance), but the basement position is).
Seriously Clever Wiring
Another affair Sandy discusses is the ability of the Tesla Archetypal Y’s base organisation. For one, clashing on the Archetypal 3, the Y uses aluminium pipes to backpack the cables from the allegation anchorage to the battery:
These, Sandy Mentions, are easier to install consistently in a absolute location, lighter and abate all-embracing compared with the adjustable cable begin in the 3 apparent below.
Sandy and Cory Steuben additionally acclaimed that Tesla has appealing abundant all of its affairs in split-loom tubing. Seriously, aloof attending at all of the black, ribbed careful tubing in these photos. It’s everywhere:
This should advice the Archetypal Y, and added Teslas that chase this aforementioned strategy, abstain electrical shorts. Best OEMs, Munro notes, use “candy striping,” which basically aloof involves wrapping baby affairs in tape. “We’ve never apparent anybody do this ever,” Sandy says in his video of Tesla’s wire aegis strategy.
Sandy additionally talks about changes to the advanced blast anatomy to advance baby overlap blast performance. The screenshot aloft shoes the increases in body-in-white metal thickness, the accession of a casting aluminium “tusk,” and the addition of the advanced abeyance cradle ascent points.
“The advanced anatomy looks a lot altered from what we bethink from the Archetypal 3, Sandy says. He additionally credibility out accoutrement for the babble active system:
There are tiny holes congenital into the lower fascia to board this feature, admitting this accurate Y is not able with it.
Jalopnik wrote a abundant commodity on the Tesla Archetypal 3’s able Superbottle—a coolant canteen with congenital valves, pumps, and a alarming which all shrank abundant of what would commonly be a ample and bulky cooling arrangement into commodity affected and compact. Now for the Archetypal Y, that Superbottle has been replaced by the Octovalve.
Munro is activity to dig into it soon. Accumulate an eye on the company’s YouTube approach for added alluring Archetypal Y tech.
