Tesla’s fame reached new heights after cybertruck’s launch. The electric car maker recently announced new news related to model Y crossover production arrangements. Model Y, released in March 2019, was scheduled to begin delivery this summer. But after some twists, the company decided to move the window to spring 2020, specifically sometime in March.

This has been mentioned on Tesla’s official website and in the latest investor relations report. The company will begin delivering model Y models by the end of the first quarter of 2020, the report said.
Given how fast Tesla’s new plant in Shanghai has been built, CEO Elon Musk is clearly delighted, with an estimated annual production capacity of 150,000 electric cars.
As the plant’s capacity and efficiency increase, Tesla is expected to increase its total shipping capacity to 500,000 vehicles by mid-2020, up from 400,000 previously.
Even though the country is widespread lyngnging the new coronal pneumonia outbreak, Tesla does not expect the impact to be significant (production at the Shanghai plant could be suspended for several weeks).
As a cross-border model, the Model Y starts at $53,000 (367,600 RMB). Reservations are now available and will be available later on with more affordable options.
As always, consumers have a lot of customization, such as the extra money to upgrade the seven-seater interior and autoPilot features.
With the arrival of model Y, Tesla has finally completed the “S3XY” sexy lineup. In addition, depending on the location of consumers, new cars are also expected to enjoy certain policy concessions.
