The Model Y's suspension has been improved, according to the company, in a post on the local Chinese social media platform Weibo.


This was achieved by improving the flex and damping components of the Model Y suspension.


With the improvements made, the Model Y's suspension will be able to reduce bump shock at low speeds and enable a more stable ride at higher speeds.


Model Y units produced in Giga Shanghai since January 1, 2023, are equipped with the new suspension system.


Tesla China has shared several posters on Weibo detailing the improvements implemented on the Y models produced at Giga Shanghai.


Tesla China is doing some updates



  • A look at the rough translation of the Model Y decals shared by Tesla China shows that the suspension improvements to the all-electric crossover help in many areas.


  • First, the spring stiffness of the Model Y suspension has been reduced by 2N/mm-5N/mm.


  • This effectively reduces bumps and makes driving more comfortable.


  • The Model Y's suspension vibration frequency has also been modified so that passengers such as children and the elderly don't feel nauseous in the car.


  • While there are more affordable competitors on the market, the Tesla Model Y has been doing quite well in the domestic Chinese market.


  • According to the list published by the China Passenger Car Association on January 11, the Model Y achieved the top spot in China's 2022 luxury SUV sales with 315,314 copies sold.


  • With recent improvements, the Model Y is likely to become more popular with consumers in China.
