Tesla’s Model Y compact crossover SUV is seeing some heavy demand it appears, as new orders are now showing estimated delivery dates of December for the USA and Canada, for the entry Long Range configuration.
Performance versions of the Model Y are showing delivery in 7-9 weeks, however.
During Tesla’s Q2 earnings call, CEO Elon Musk pointed out the company is still being affected by the global chip shortage, calling the situation “quite serious”. While Musk said it appears the situation appears to be improving, the shortage still remains out of the company’s control and is the limiting factor for Tesla to produce and deliver vehicles to customers.
The chip shortage and lengthy delivery dates of news Teslas have resulted in the used market to surge, with owners seeing some premiums on the trade-in prices of their electric vehicles.
