Those that ordered a Tesla Model Y Performance in China may still be waiting, but not for very much longer, as shared in a new update from the company.
After nearly a year for some reservation holders, Tesla has officially announced plans to start delivering its Shanghai-made Tesla Model Y Performance in the days to come, according to a post shared by Tesla China on its Weibo account on Tuesday (via @JayinShanghai).

The Tesla Model Y debuted in China this year and sold out immediately, with the automaker’s very first deliveries in China having taken place in January.
Earlier this year, Tesla increased the price of the Model Y Performance, which now costs a starting price of 387,900 RMB ($60,192.72 USD), following another price increase that took place in March.
Still, a series of price increases didn’t stop Tesla’s record-breaking registration numbers in China in September, nor did it stop the Model Y from causing backups at registration centers in cities across China within the same month.
