Recently, Tesla had a Model Y for employees seen outside his seat factory at 901 Page Street in Fremont, California. Photos posted by several Reddit users seem to be the same deep-blue metallic Model Y that was driven on stage and used for test drives at the car's unveiling event last month in the building's parking lot for one closer look was available.
The display is equipped with a chrome erase trim that is popular with the Tesla Aftermarket community, but a standard model range for the Y model. The all-electric crossover with Tesla Sport Wheels is also available in black. Tesla offers Silver Sport Wheels as an option for $ 1
The final production location for the Model Y has yet to be determined, as CEO Elon Musk noted during Tesla's first quarter 2019 deal. He estimated that a decision on this matter would be taken in the next few weeks, with the current close relationship between the Fremont factory and Gigafactory 1 in Sparks, Nevada.
In Fremont, the space is limited to Model S, Model X, and Model X lines already produced there, and in Tesla's Q4 2018 full year update, Musk stated that the Nevada plant is the best production location could be for model Y Musk jokingly hinted that sprung structures, ie high-performance tents, served. Similar to the expansion of the Model 3 production, this could be an option if the space is limited where the Model Y was ultimately manufactured. "I'm a fan of tents, like real hardcore tents," musk mused.
The Tesla Model Y is expected to be the company's best-selling vehicle when it goes on sale, even beyond the mass-market Model 3. In California, for example, Tesla was the best-selling alternative-drive-train brand in 2018, making Model 3 55% of all sales of electric cars. The popularity of the crossover SUV market is driving future revenue forecasts for Model Y, and Elon Musk has expected a demand and delivery schedule that will equal 1 million units per year.
The production of Model Y should take place in late 2020 The first deliveries will start soon after.
