Model Y Production Expected to Start in Spring 2020



The Model Y production timeline has been moved up from fall 2020 to spring, Tesla said in its Q3 update.

Tesla hoped that by sharing the same platform as the Model 3, the Model Y crossover SUV would have an advantage when time to go to production. The Model Y shares about 70 percent of the same parts as the Model 3 sedan. 

According to Tesla’s Q3 report

Model Y equipment installation is underway in advance of the planned launch next year. We are moving faster than initially planned, using learnings and efficiencies gained from our Gigafactory Shanghai factory design. Capex per unit of capacity is forecasted to be about 50% lower than our current Model 3 production system in the United States.

Several Model Ys have recently been spotted doing road testing, signaling that Tesla is getting closer to production.

The long-range Model Y with 300 miles of range will come first with a price of $47,000. Tesla will also offer an all-wheel drive dual-motor version for $51,000 and a performance version for $60,000.

Tesla has said it expects the demand for the Model Y of between 500,000 to 1 million units per year.

Pick up Y in fall will be least of concern if you pre-order now, initial patch was estimated to be 4000-5000. there are definitely more people that pre-ordered earlier waiting to get their new ride than Tesla can supply in first a few month. you will be lucky to receive delivery in first half year. plus the sale representative usually allow you to set time frame to take delivery when you have your order number assigned.

I think everyone is correct. Tesla website says production beginning in Spring. And, it was said yesterday that Model Y is expected to reach 1,000/week by summer. So, it will be a slow production early on (though not as slow as prior model releases). And with Tesla time, I wouldn't expect meaningful quantities until around Fall/Winter.

and maybe if we get lucky a new tax credit after elections by the time SR is released
