leftiebiker: Thanks for the spare tire info. I eyeballed a Model Y at the Tesla showroom, and it appears the spare in its case could be secured on either side bulkhead. I'm also going to explore modifying the rear well under the floor. There just might be enough room for the ModernSpare spare/jack in its bag.
YIKES: $400! Curiously, outfitting my (now sold) 2018 Prius Touring with a spare tire could have cost just as much, but I was able to source the appropriate bits, used, for around $300.

Prices on Amazon change a lot. Put the url into the website Camelcamelcamel and it will watch the prices and notify you when it drops - even for just a few hours as often happens.

They are saying the model 3's pack got bigger, so I wonder if that will be or already is already is also in the Y?

That move to an 82 kWh pack is pretty big news.

It's a combination of ~ 3 kWh more capacity, and a *much* improved heat system and improved cabin insulation.

EPA Model 3 AWD
353 miles range
(on the road consumption; not including charging losses)
213 Wh/mile city consumption
237 Wh/mile highway consumption

Amazing progress in the scant 2 years since I bought my Tesla, and the outlook looks even brighter.
Few people would have believed it possible to increase battery capacity and improve efficiency at the same time.

If you meant battery size, sure. Improving capacity does not of necessity involve a weight penalty. It can even result in a lighter pack if the chemistry is improved enough.

Correct, but show me another recent example of increased range, kWh, and improved efficiency in another EV
