Whilst we’re still awaiting for the Tesla Model Y to appear in the UK for ordering and delivery, in the US it has been confirmed by Tesla that the Model Y Standard Range won’t be making it into the line-up.
The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk has said that the range of the proposed Standard Range Model Y would be sub 250 miles would be “unacceptably low.”
What is the current line up of the Tesla Model Y?
The Tesla Model Y is currently made up of two versions; The All Wheel Drive Long Range version and the Performance version, they have just recently had a price cut in the US.
As of today, only the 5-seater version is available with the 7-seater version making its debut in early 2021.
When is the Tesla Model Y due to arrive in the UK?
The Tesla Model Y is due to start deliveries in the UK in 2021 and the rumour mill is stating that the car may be built in the Gigafactory that is currently under construction in Berlin.
It will be an exciting vehicle for the UK in terms of fully electric vehicles (BEV) and the Model Y has already received some fantastic reviews from the motoring critics.
Don’t forget to use a Referral Code!
When ordering a Tesla Model 3 or a Model Y, when available. Its an extremely good idea to use a referral code, even if you already own a Tesla and want to refer yourself (Yes, this is currently possible). It gives both parties some supercharger miles to use on Tesla’s supercharger network.
