Our new 2022 Tesla Model Y is the perfect environmentally-friendly choice for traveling around the streets of Reykjavík and Akureyri or exploring the Golden Circle and the South Coast in comfort and style.
With two electric motors powered by a 75kWh battery that digitally control torque to the front and rear wheels, the Tesla Model Y delivers impressive performance as well as better handling, traction, and stability control. The Model Y excels in any condition and is capable in rain, snow, and mud. It’s the ideal choice for those planning to explore all the beautiful scenery that Iceland has to offer.
The Tesla Model Y comfortably seats 5 adults with boot space for 3 bags. Versatile seating and storage allow each of the rear seats to be folded flat independently, creating flexible storage for skis, furniture, luggage, and much more. The rear hatchback opens to a low floor to make loading and unloading easier and quicker.
The Model Y is fully electric so you never need to worry about visiting a fuel station. You can even recharge up to 150 miles in 15 minutes at one of Tesla’s Supercharger locations. It couldn’t be easier or more economical to plug in and charge your vehicle at any public charging station or Tesla charging network. What's more, we are now offering free charging and GPS with all Tesla Model Y rentals.
Designed to be the safest in its class, the Model Y’s low center of gravity, large crumple zones, and rigid body structure keep you and your passengers protected against impact, and Tesla’s ultrasonic sensors and 360º cameras detect nearby cars, prevent potential collisions and assist with parking - perfect in the busy streets of Reykjavík.

The Tesla Model Y’s luxurious interior is fully equipped with features to make your drive and stay in Iceland as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Heated front and rear seats, tinted glass roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection, premium audio for immersive sound, as well as Bluetooth and USB connectivity mean you can enjoy road trips in maximum comfort and soundtrack your explorations to your favorite songs!
As the Tesla Model Y is fully electric, you can't fill up at Iceland’s gas stations as you normally would. Iceland has a large network of electric charging stations across the entire country for you to recharge and continue your explorations. Orka náttúrunnar has a helpful map of charging points in Iceland and Tesla has its own Supercharger points you can also use. By renting a Tesla Model Y with Lotus Car Rental, you won't pay for any charging, leaving you free to explore the country at no extra cost!
Please note that the Tesla Model Y rental is only available with an automatic gearbox.
