Check out Novitec’s modified Tesla Model Y

Fancy 22-inch wheels and lowered suspension on your family EV? It’s your lucky day

German tuner Novitec seems to spend most of its time giving McLarens and Ferraris in excess of 1,000bhp, but today it has found some time to go electric with a freshly modified Tesla Model Y. 

Before you get excited about warp speed acceleration and sub-two second 0-62mph times though, you should know that Novitec doesn’t actually touch the Tesla’s powertrain. Best to read our full review for more on that then.

What Novitec does do is fit a full carbon fibre bodykit that includes a lip spoiler up front, side skirts down the, um, sides and a ducktail spoiler plus diffuser round the back. It also drops the Model Y by up to 40mm with new height-adjustable sports suspension, while the wheels are 22-inch forged items created by US brand Vossen. They certainly look snazzy, but we can’t help feeling the ride might suffer. 

That’s about it for changes on the car you see above, but Novitec adds that it can “create exquisite interiors in any desired colour and with individual upholstery designs by customer request". Yikes, what kind of creations are we likely to see?
