In accordance with the most recent media reviews from China, the Made-in-China Tesla Model Y ought to enter sequence manufacturing earlier than the top of this yr. We beforehand heard rumors that it may be even November.

A pre-production MIC Mannequin Y was first seen in August. The final expectation is that the primary buyer automobiles will likely be delivered in 2021. Formally, Tesla is concentrating on Q1 2021.

Whereas the manufacturing begin is one factor, one other is the pricing. After the price cuts of the MIC Model 3, it is now anticipated that the MIC Mannequin Y can even turn into extra reasonably priced, in comparison with the initial pricing.

It may not occur straight away, as Tesla in all probability already acquired quite a lot of orders at present costs, but it surely’s completely anticipated in 2021.

The MIC Mannequin Y LR AWD model begins from ¥488,000 ($72,900), whereas the LR AWD Efficiency from ¥535,000 ($79,900). That is much more than within the case of MIC Mannequin 3:

  • Normal Vary Plus RWD (MIC): *249,900 yuan ($37,328) (*after subsidies)
  • Lengthy Vary RWD (MIC): 309,900 yuan ($46,290)
  • Efficiency, Lengthy Vary AWD (MIC): 419,800 yuan ($62,706)

The value distinction appears just too excessive to justify. Our guess is that by Spring 2021 we are going to see decrease costs of the MIC Mannequin Y.
