The first customers will receive their electric cars on Friday the 13th.
Tesla deservedly has a reputation as a company that constantly rips deadlines, including the start of deliveries of cars to customers. The first Model S, Model Y, and Model 3 is not only not been transferred in time, these deadlines were moved more than once in each case. More surprising is the situation that has developed around the fourth (not counting small-scale Roadster) models of the brand.
During the summit held last spring, the presentation, the manufacturer announced that deliveries of the Model Y will start this fall. Then, if “otzerkalivat” all the previous negative experience, Tesla began to call all the earlier period. Officially announced last date was 15 March is exactly a year after the debut, which is symbolic, but now themed edition Electrek said that some customers will receive their crossovers for the 13 December, which, incidentally, falls on a Friday.
The source: the buyers themselves, who have received letters from “Tesla” with the offer to confirm delivery date through the company account. Several people have stated as such on March 13 and 14. According to the published prospective owners of VIN, in the initial stage, the company is ready to transfer about 1,700 instances of Model Y, but that number is growing fast – last week it was about three or four hundred. And this is a big break compared to the platform with the sedan Model 3, which in the first few months were shipped by microscopic drawings. Apparently, Tesla had been able to consider and correct all the flaws in the production, which had almost turned the most anticipated electric car of the year in the biggest failure.
Earlier it was reported that the deliveries will start with the most expensive (and most profitable for the manufacturer) version of Tesla Model Y Performance, for which the States asking 60 990 dollars. This electric car is gaining 97 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, accelerates to a maximum of 233 km/h and rides on a single charge 507 miles on a very accurate American testing methods. 8 thousand dollars cheaper Model Y Long Range with the same battery and reserve, but not as impressive dynamics: 4.8 seconds and 217 km/h respectively.
