The indoors of the Model Y is a immediately carry from the Model 3 and calling it minimalist may be sarcasm. The cabin is ruled by the massive 15-inch horizontally placed touchscreen, and there are no buttons beside those at the steering. There’s a humongous panoramic glass roof to make the cabin feel airy.
