When do you think the structural battery pack and 4680 cells are coming to the Model Y?
Why are folks not waiting until the 4680 cells to order their Model Y?
You asked "When?" and "Why?" but maybe a more important question is "How?"
as in once 4680s become available, How will they be integrated into the vehicle? You're assuming the range will increase, but maybe it'll stay the same because they'll put fewer in there to save money
How much will a 4680 vehicle cost? You said it was a "Huge upgrade" so maybe there'll be a commensurate price increase
Also if the current order book is running with over three moths lead time, How long will you have to wait until you get you 4680 vehicle?
I was waiting for the 4680s too, then I saw a video that (correctly IMO) suggested that when they finally became available, there'd be something else to wait for. I'm now $1500 better off because I placed my order on June 22nd, which is like getting a free tow hitch, or free red paint, or free 20" wheels, or a free white interior ... and soon there'll be another price increase
Maybe more importantly still (and please don't take this as a personal insult because it's not meant that way) How does it feel driving around in an old used S when you could be driving a new Y
