Tesla Spotted Shipping Model Y by Rail Cars in Taylor, Texas [VIDEO]
Tesla has started shipping its Model Y compact crossover SUV by rail car, according to the latest drone flyover by Brad Sloan.
A video filmed on August 31 shows Model Y vehicles arriving by transport truck, to then be loaded into rail cars at the RCR Taylor Logistics Park, a master planned rail-served logistics and industrial park located in Taylor, Texas.
The Park opened in January 2021 and offers shipping customers a direct and faster route into the Austin and Central Texas markets, in the ‘Golden Triangle’.
RCR Taylor Logistics Park is located roughly 30 miles north of Tesla’s Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, while also nearby in Taylor is a new Samsung chip plant being constructed. It offers Class 1 railroad service and will allow Tesla to distribute its Model Y vehicles more efficiently across the U.S., where Union Pacific and BNSF railways exist.
In the video we see numerous truck transports offloading Model Y vehicles, with the majority of them in white.
