    Who knows category.

    My personal view is all future RHD models (both 3 and Y) will come from Shanghai.
    Some test RHD 3s were shipped a few months ago to Hong Kong.

    Shanghai Model Y has just started production, so id say minimum 12 months before they start shifting to RHD.

    As for pricing. Whatever the 3 SR+ (or possibly 3 Standard as it seems to be now) is at the time plus $5k

    Rumours are that Shanghai will be at a 500k run rate by the end of 2021 with 100k units exported to international markets (blended 3/y). 100k export is a lot of units.

    My sneaking suspicion is that we will see the same timing as the Model 3. That is; May is when the Model Y order page opens, vehicles built in June/July 2021 and then arrive in September 2021. Tesla have often preferred to open up new markets rather than fully satisfy demand in the current and closer markets first.

    Given that they only started production of Model Y at the Giga Shanghai in the last few months, I think RHD production may be a few months off until they satisfy the high demand within China for the new model.
