Tesla’s Model Y launched sales in China on New Year’s day, and the first orders are set to be delivered later in January.
According to Tesla China’s Vice-President, Grace Tao, she announced on Wednesday the first Model Y deliveries are indeed set for later this month (via @42how_).
According to Grace Tao, VP of #Tesla China, MIC #ModelY will begin the delivery in this month. And according to Tesla China’s website, MIC Model Y LR AWD will be delivered in Q2 2021 this year and Performance will be delivered in Q3 2021. $TSLA pic.twitter.com/J0ANXfTIbJ

Tesla’s website indicates for new Model Y orders placed as of today, Long Range AWD versions will deliver in Q2, while Performance versions won’t get delivery until Q3. Now that’s a long wait.
Clearly, there is some intense demand for Tesla’s SUV right now in China, which includes a heated steering wheel, HEPA filter and Bioweapon Defense Mode, still unavailable outside of the country (a Model Y with heated steering wheel was seen in the U.S. last week though).
