As for Australia, Model Y orders have launched as hinted by previous sightings of vehicles spotted on trucks in the country.
Back in April, Model Y pricing for Australia leaked, and today’s pricing looks to be about the same, if you take into consideration inflationary pressures.
These Model Y vehicles will most likely be manufactured at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Shanghai, China, which is ramping up production to normal levels now that COVID-19 restrictions have eased. Interestingly, all three entry Model Y vehicles are RWD versions and not Long Range AWD versions, which are available in China and Europe.
Update: Model Y orders have also launched in New Zealand (via @Jiu_Jase), with the RWD starting at $76,200 NZ (Aug-Nov 2022 delivery) and Performance at $108,900 NZ (Nov 2022 to Feb 2023 delivery).
Update 2: The Model Y is also now available to order in Singapore (thanks @TeslaOwnersSG). The RWD version is starting at $91,990 SGD and Performance from $110,990 SGD. Delivery estimates for both are slated as “late 2022”.
