Our approach to this design entailed imbuing the Model Y’s visage with the performance soul that the car delivers, but to do so in harmony with the Tesla Model Y’s design and functionality. While Model 3 and Model Y share design elements such as the headlights and corner lights, the overall shape is actually quite different. Bringing out Ascension design DNA to the Model Y was a major challenge and required nearly 2 years of constant development and testing until we were thrilled with the final product.  The Model Y Ascension Front Fascia incorporates sharpened modern lines with an integrated front lip spoiler.  The shapes are balanced to enhance your Tesla’s design and work in harmony with the rest of the vehicle.  You can install this on an otherwise stock vehicle and have it look right at home, or use it on a wildly modified Model Y for the ultimate look.  Owners that prefer offroading and Overlanding can use bedliner coating on the integrated lip for a rugged look.

Unplugged Performance Ascension DNA

Tesla’s design team, who work next-door here in Hawthorne CA, are incredibly talented and produce some of the best looking and most functional car designs on earth. We naturally want all of our work to amplify the potential of Tesla’s design, but to never lose sight of its soul.  The Ascension program is designed to take the high-performance soul of the Model Y and bring some of that to the exterior of the vehicle with sharper lines and a more sporting face. In turning the dial-up with our design we always ask ourselves, is this something that would look appropriate in a Tesla showroom as a special model? If the answer is ever no, we erase the page and start over. What makes a car’s DNA is of course subjective. As Tesla owners and enthusiasts we follow our heart and aim to highlight what we love about the car first and foremost.  We then deeply consider the already-great work from Tesla’s design team and try to place ourselves in their shoes in an effort to honor their intentions and gain perspective. Ultimately, we look for thoughts, feelings, and specific ideas that mesh with those two worlds.   The name “Ascension” takes inspiration from our other neighbors at Space X.  It takes tremendous energy to blast a rocket into space and that energy is something that inspires our Ascension line.  We want your vehicle to reflect and manifest the excitement that you have behind the wheel when you are driving for enjoyment. The intended result is a look that shows off the tremendous performance potential of the vehicle which we have demonstrated with our SUV lap record at Laguna Seca.

Unplugged Performance Tesla Model Y Ascension Front Fascia System

Technical Design Criteria – Proper Functionality, No Downsides, No Drawbacks, No Compromises

We design our aerodynamics parts to work flawlessly with Tesla’s onboard systems.  Autopilot, cruise control, Summon, and associated systems are not disturbed.  Parking distance sensors are carefully maintained in their original orientation to provide equally precise readings.  Our proprietary urethane construction provides a resilient and durable fascia that will resist cracking and can stand up to minor fender benders.   Aerodynamically we work hard to deliver a fascia that is roughly as efficient as the hyper-efficient standard design.

Magnetic License Plate Holder Option (for USA plates)

This license plate holder allows your plate to be securely attached to your Ascension Front Fascia for daily use and easily and instantly removed without tools for car washes, car shows, or when traveling in states that do not require front plates.  Our plate holder uses an original Tesla part modified with embedded ultra-strong Neodymium magnets so that no one would ever know it’s removable.

The backside is padded with soft non-abrasive material to avoid scratching the paint. If you plan to frequently remove and replace the plate or live in harsh climates, we recommend cleaning the padding surface and underlying paint to avoid any micro-abrasions.

Note: To install needed magnets to enable the use of the plate, the bumper must be removed from the vehicle.  If you want a removable front plate solution, we strongly recommend purchasing this item at the same time you purchase your fascia to avoid unnecessary labor, cost, and headache of removing and reinstalling your fascia.  USA Plates only.  We also encourage 3rd party plate holder manufacturers to offer Ascension-compatible products for our customers.

Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.

What is the construction [material]?
Impact Resistant Proprietary Blend Polymer, made 100% in USA.
Is this compatible with current spec AutoPilot hardware?
Is this compatible with vital cooling systems?
Yes, it mounts flush to the central cooling duct.
Is this compatible with the front fender air vent outlets?
Yes, it has similar concept side vents that connect to your existing fender liner exit duct.
Can I drive my car every day or will ground clearance be a problem?
Front lip edge ground clearance is within 0.5” of the factory bumper. We do not believe 0.5” will be a factor for most people as typically aftermarket lip spoilers sit lower than that. However, as always, if something is a concern, we do not suggest purchasing any product until you are confident it is right for you.
Will my car become longer as a result of this fascia?
Our fascia design is clearly more aggressive. Our reshaping does extend the front edge of the car by approximately 70mm. If your parking tolerance is extremely small, please consider the additional 70mm in length of this fascia.
My car is a lease, is there any permanent modification to my car done by installing?
No, we have designed this to install/remove using factory attachment points so that it can be installed and removed with no trace. There is zero cutting, drilling, or modifying the car to install/remove.
Do you provide a warranty with the product?
Absolutely. For further information please see: https://unpluggedperformance.com/terms-and-conditions
Do I need a Tesla certified body shop to install?
You may use Tesla certified facilities, and many of them are dealers of Unplugged Performance already. However we have designed this (and all of our bumpers) to be able to be installed with basic tools by any professional body shop. There is no specific Tesla tools or knowledge required to install. The only requirement for install is the ability to know how to fit a bumper and to read and follow instructions thoroughly.
How much will paint and installation cost me?
This will vary widely based on labor rates of your country, city and specific shop. We regularly get feedback from body shops that our product quality exceeds their expectations. However as a baseline, we suggest inquiring with a local shop you trust to ask for a quote. If you are curious of a ballpark price, in the US an extremely generic ballpark pricing would be approximately $800-1400 for paint and install out the door for Model 3.
What happens if I hit a car, curb, deer, etc.?
We’ve designed this to have flex and to be impact resistant. The impact resistance is comparable to what the the factory bumper can take. We did not make this in fiberglass or carbon fiber which do shatter or crack on impact, this product can bend. In fact you can crunch it into a ball and it will retain shape retention and pop back to original shape.
Do you ship worldwide?
Absolutely, on everything we make.
