Tesla Model Y: How to Shift

When Model Y is in Park, you must press the brake pedal to shift.

Move the drive stalk up or down to shift into different drive modes.

How to Shift

If you try to shift when it is prohibited by the current driving speed, a chime sounds and the drive mode does not change.

Reverse

Push the drive stalk all the way up and release. You can only shift into Reverse when Model Y is stopped or moving less than 5 mph (8 km/h).

Neutral

Neutral allows Model Y to roll freely when you are not pressing the brake pedal:

  • When in Park, shift into Neutral by briefly pushing the drive stalk either up or down to the first position.
  • When in Drive, shift into Neutral by briefly pushing the drive stalk up to the first position. If Autosteer or Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (if equipped) is active, you must push the drive stalk up to the first position and hold it there for more than 1 second. In doing so, Autosteer or Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is disabled.
  • When in Reverse, shift into Neutral by briefly pushing the drive stalk down to the first position.

NOTE: You must press the brake pedal to shift out of Neutral if driving slower than approximately 5 mph (8 km/h).

Model Y automatically shifts into Park when you leave the driver's seat. To stay in Neutral, use the touchscreen to engage Transport Mode.

Drive

Push the drive stalk all the way down and release. You can shift into Drive when Model Y is stopped or moving less than 5 mph (8 km/h) in Reverse.

NOTE: When in Drive, push the drive stalk all the way down and release to enable cruise control and push the stalk down twice in quick succession to enable Autosteer.
