The Tesla Model Y has been around for four years now. It has received some software updates, but there haven’t been any big changes since 2020. And it looks like there won’t be any updates this year either. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, confirmed this on X (formerly Twitter) by saying, “No Model Y ‘refresh’ is coming out this year.”

Musk tweeted this in response to Pejjy, a big fan of Tesla, who mentioned hearing rumors about a Model Y refresh. But Musk denied these rumors. People have been talking about the possibility of a Model Y update for a while now, especially after the updated Model 3 came out.

It’s been almost a year since the new Model 3 was released, but there haven’t been any signs of a Model Y refresh yet. Some reports said the updated Model Y, called project Juniper, would come out in 2024 with big changes to how it looks and how it performs. But since Musk said it won’t happen this year, customers will just have to wait or buy the current model. This isn’t the first time Tesla has said the new model won’t come out this year.

So when will it come out? Musk didn’t say exactly when, but we might see it sometime in 2025. It took Tesla six years before the Model 3 got an update, so it might take a while for the Model Y too. But Tesla might want to update the Model Y as soon as possible because it’s their best-selling car and also the world’s best-selling car.

But don’t worry if you’re thinking of buying a Model Y now. Musk mentioned that Tesla is always improving its cars. He said, “I should note that Tesla continuously improves its cars, so even a car that is six months newer will be a little better.” We think the updated Model Y will look like the new Model 3 and might have better technology inside.

The Model Y is a great car, but it’s facing some tough competition. Other car companies are coming out with electric SUVs too, like Kia, Hyundai, Ford, and Volkswagen. And in China, there are many companies making electric cars too. We don’t know exactly when the updated Model Y will come out, but we hope it’s soon.
