Tesla Model Y Deliveries To Start By End Of Q1 2020
Model Y already entered production at the Tesla Factory in Fremont in January 2020.
The rumors about customer deliveries of the Tesla Model Y happening very soon were true. Tesla has already begun the production ramp for the Model Y in Fremont, California in January, months ahead of schedule.
First customer car deliveries are expected by the end of Q1 2020.
The combined installed production capacity for the Model 3 and the Model Y is 400,000 units per year (for comparison, Tesla produced 302,301 Model 3 in 2019). With the expansion planned for mid-2020, the production capacity for the 3/Y will be 500,000.
“The production ramp of Model Y started in January 2020. Together with Model 3, our combined installed production capacity for these vehicles is now 400,000 units per year.
The ramp of Model Y will be gradual as we will be adding additional machinery in various production shops. After such expansions are done by mid-2020, installed combined Model 3 and Model Y capacity should reach 500,000 units per year. We will start delivering Model Y vehicles by the end of Q1 2020.”
