While the Tesla Model Y has already seen the light of day in the United States, the electric SUV could come out of the Berlin Gigafactory earlier than expected.
The Tesla Model Y is highly anticipated in Europe. The new electric compact SUV, however, was not expected to see the light of day until mid-2021, during which time production would begin at the brand new Berlin plant. But it looks like Tesla is ahead of its schedule.
This is according to Teslarati specialists, informed by a visibly knowledgeable Dutch customer, too. According to the latter, the local Tesla antenna in the Netherlands would have informed him that the Tesla Model Y on hold will be delivered to him in advance, in the first or second quarter of 2021, specifying that it will be a Model Y made in Germany. Either many months ahead of the initial estimates, set for summer 2021.
Berlin factory comes out of the ground faster than expected
This early exit would be the result of an acceleration of works in Berlin. As Elon Musk posted on Twitter, prefabricated construction methods are bringing the factory out of the ground much faster than expected.
This is not the first time that the Tesla Model Y has arrived ahead of schedule initially planned: while the first copies were to be released at the end of the year on the other side of the Atlantic, the brand Californian started delivering the first copies in March 2020.
