Recently,media have released a set of pre-production Tesla Model Y model photos. The media commented that its assembly level was surprising. Tesla has long been stoic by industry and consumers for its assembly levels and processes, especially the Model S and Model X models of earlier years.
On the Model 3, there are fewer complaints, thanks to Tesla’s advances in production processes.
Now, Tesla hopes to continue that hard-won reputation on the upcoming model, the Model Y.
Sterling Picton has captured what looks like a pre-production vehicle near Tesla’s engineering center in Fremont.
A document in the car adds to the possibility that it is a pre-production vehicle. The document contains a list of areas that need to be improved: exteriors, interiors, UI panels, etc.
However, as a pre-production car, this Model Y’s assembly accuracy exceeded Picton’s expectations.
At a close-up view, the headlights and the front wing, the door panel and the wheel arch gap are more uniform. The only blemish is that the gap between the rear boot lid and the rear apron is slightly wider near the rear light – but it’s still much stronger than Tesla’s earlier models.
The media also did a questionnaire survey below this article, the car’s assembly process in the 1-10 score, 28.57 percent of people feel can get 10 points, give 8-10 points ratio of more than 75%.
Another netizen found that Tesla had stockpiled a batch of Model Ys in the parking lot of its Fremont plant to prepare for delivery.
Last March, Tesla unveiled the Model 3-based all-electric SUV Model Y, which has a range of up to 300 miles. At the time, Tesla said it would deliver a high-end version of the model in the fall of 2020. Tesla has made faster-than-expected progress, and in its earnings report last month, it confirmed that it had started production of model Y at its plant in Fremont, California.
The Tesla Model Y is CARB certified, confirming that the updated single-charge range is 315 miles (about 507 kilometers).
In addition, the latest news shows that Tesla’s Berlin super plant has completed the “clear forest” work. Earlier, the clean-up work was once protested by local environmentalists.
