Serial production of this modification will begin in November this year. The new version should increase the model’s market competitiveness.
Tesla is preparing to start production of the model Y crossover with 7 seats in the cabin. The owner of the company, Elon Musk, said that in November, the machines will begin to go off the Assembly line, and deliveries to customers will be made in December.

At the same time, the volume of production at the first stages will not be too large – it will be aimed at meeting demand and fulfilling obligations to customers who have placed an order. Many doubted that Tesla could start production of a new version of the cross in time due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Elon Musk fulfilled the promise.
It will be very interesting to see the car live – users on the Network actively discuss the convenience of the third row, as well as the volume of the trunk in this modification.
Initially, you can only order such a car in the United States. It will cost $ 3,000 more than the standard configuration.
Earlier, Tesla said that it plans to release 500,000 new cars by the end of the year. Such a plan was laid before the coronavirus epidemic, but even now it does not seem impossible. The launch of production in China helped significantly increase production volumes compared to last year.
