Tesla Extends an Invitation for Test Drives of the Enhanced Model Y in China. The SUV Boasts Interior Design Updates, with More Significant Changes Anticipated as Part of Project Juniper in 2024.
Tesla has announced the commencement of test drives for its latest Model Y crossover in China through a post on its Weibo account. This allows local consumers the opportunity to get a firsthand experience of the vehicle. The first batch of deliveries was also slated to kick off over the weekend. While Tesla didn't provide specific details about the exact start date for Model Y deliveries in the post, website data suggests they may have already commenced.
On October 1, Tesla introduced the updated Model Y in China, maintaining the previous pricing while incorporating minor feature enhancements. The Model Y lineup now consists of three versions: the base Model Y with rear-wheel drive, the Long Range Model Y with dual-motor all-wheel drive, and the Performance Model Y with dual-motor all-wheel drive. The base Model Y boasts improved range and acceleration, while the Model Y Long Range offers extended range. The core specifications of the Model Y Performance remain unaltered. Notable updates encompass multi-color ambient lighting, new dashboard trim, and fresh 19-inch wheels.
Initially, the waiting times for the Model Y in China remain consistent. For the base and Performance versions, it ranges from 2 to 6 weeks, while for the Model Y Long Range, it stands at 6 to 8 weeks. This suggests that initial deliveries may have already transpired or are anticipated in the coming days.
