The Tesla Model Y Long Range RWD Officially Cancelled

  • Tesla Model Y will only be offered in AWD versions

Customers who had reserved a Tesla Model Y Long Range RWD received an email from Tesla asking them to change their reservation. The Model Y Long Range rear-wheel drive was already in jeopardy, and now owners got the official notice from Tesla.

Word that the Long Range RWD trim was in trouble emerged in February as first reported by Teslarati, but reservation holders hadn’t been officially notified until now.

Tesla did say that buyers who had reserved a Long Range rear-wheel drive model would be able to keep the lower-priced Full Self-Driving feature (the price increased from $7,000 to $10,000 during the year), but it’s unclear if that is still the case.

Those who had reserved a RWD Long Range Tesla Model Y received an email asking them to simply choose another version of the vehicle.

The Tesla Model Y has become the most popular model in the Tesla lineup and the production capacity is dwindling. The Model Y is currently delayed until July 2022 for the Dual-Motor AWD Long Range version.
