Tesla Model Y SUV May Be Only A Few Months Away

The new Tesla Model Y will undoubtably be popular and if your name was on the wait-list, you might get one sooner than expected.

  • Deutsche Bank estimates that Tesla will begin deliveries of the Model Y in Q1 of 2020.
  • The Tesla Model Y might quickly become the car company’s best-seller.
  • Expected in the fall of 2020, early deliveries of the Model Y will certainly do wonders for speculators

It was only nine months ago that Elon Musk revealed the new Tesla Model Y in Hawthorne, California. At the time, the predicted timeline indicated that the compact Model Y SUV was to go on sale in the fall of 2020. At the time, an 18-month incubation period seemed almost premature.

Fast-forward to December of 2019 and, according to research from Deutsche Bank, Tesla may very launch the Model Y as early as Q1 2020, so between now and March.

Deutsche Bank’s report found that “suppliers of Model Y parts in Taiwan are claiming that Tesla is requesting that their orders be delivered much earlier than expected… The Taiwanese suppliers are now indicating that the Tesla is accelerating orders to enter mass production a full six months ahead of the original schedule. This would mean that the Model Y could be available to the public in the first quarter of next year. The suppliers additionally claimed that Tesla Semi part orders are being accelerated as well, with the truck set to be released in limited quantity sometime next year.”

These findings and reports are supported by Tesla’s 3rd quarter earnings call where Musk said:

“We’re also ahead of schedule on Model Y preparations in Fremont, and we’ve moved the launch timeline from full 2020 to summer 2020. There may be some room for improvement there, but we’re confident about summer 2020.”

Delivering ahead of schedule would be a personal victory for the company which has notoriously fallen behind self-imposing delays on a few occasions.
