June 18, according tomedia reports, Tesla in March last year launched a cross-border sport utility vehicle Model Y, in the first quarter of this year began delivery, from the current official website disclosed the expected delivery time, the production capacity of this electric vehicle may be significantly improved.
Tesla currently produces model Y only at its assembly plant in Fremont, California, and the electric car is currently only available in the U.S. and Canada, and is currently available to consumers in the U.S. market for the dual-motor all-wheel-drive long-range and dual-motor all-wheel-drive Performance high-performance versions.
Tesla’s U.S. website says the Model Y is now expected to deliver 4-8 weeks, a month shorter than the previous estimate of 8-12 weeks.
Notably, Tesla has repeatedly adjusted its other electric model 3 to the U.S. market on the eve of and after the reopening of the Fremont assembly plant and the Nevada Supercell plant. The first was adjusted from 4-8 weeks to 4-7 weeks, the second adjustment at the end of May, the rear-wheel drive standard battery-life upgrade is expected to be delivered in 3-6 weeks, and the dual-motor all-wheel drive long-range version and Performance Performance are expected to be delivered in 4-6 weeks. Adjusted again earlier this month, the expected delivery time for the rear-wheel drive standard battery-renewal upgrade is 2-3 weeks, while the other two versions are 1-3 weeks. Currently, three versions of Model 3 are expected to have a delivery time of 1-2 weeks in the U.S. market.
However, unlike the model 3’s estimated delivery time, which has been adjusted several times since the Fremont assembly plant returned to normal operation, Model Y’s expected delivery time in the U.S. market has not been adjusted frequently, and this reduction to 4-8 weeks could mean a significant increase in capacity.
In fact, there was already signs of an increase in Model Y capacity last week. Tesla began delivering the Model Y to users in Canada last week, and without capacity increases, Tesla is unlikely to deliver the electric car to users outside the U.S.
