Tesla to Start Model Y Production in Germany ‘Mid-2021’ Says Website
Tesla appears to have updated its Model Y production timeline in Germany, according to the electric vehicle maker’s website.
The Tesla website in Germany is now showing a production timeline of “mid-2021”, whereas previously it was only showing just “2021” for the compact crossover SUV, according to Reddit.
While the production date is showing “mid-2021” for the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Long Range Model Y, there is still no timeline for the Performance version.
A Google Translate of Tesla’s German website says, “production is expected to start in mid-2021”, which would most likely result in fall deliveries.
Currently, Tesla’s construction at its Gigafactory in Berlin has moved very quickly. Company CEO Elon Musk recently shared a flyover of the site, which looks nearly complete. Tesla’s recent Q4 2020 earnings report stated the company had already started moving machinery into Gigafactory Berlin.
As for pricing, it’s unclear if the prices on Tesla’s German website have been finalized yet. The Long Range Model Y is listed at $58,620 Euro ($70,593 USD) and the Performance starts at $65,620 Euro ($79,022 USD). When Tesla launched Model Y sales in China last month, the debut prices were lower than the website’s previous placeholder amounts.
