In March 2019, Elon Musk introduced the new Model Y electric crossover, promising that its production would begin in the fall of 2020. However, in the report for the fourth quarter of 2019, new information was found on this subject.

According to Insideevs portal, the report said that Model Y production at the plant in Californian Fremont has already begun, and the first copies will reach customers in the current quarter. This is likely to happen at the end of March.

During the premiere of Model Y, it was reported that the car is capable of driving 280 miles on a single charge through the EPA cycle (~ 450 km). Now, on Tesla’s website, curious information has appeared that the Model Y’s range is already 315 miles (~ 506 km). The American company managed to achieve such an improvement thanks to “constant technical progress” (not a word about the specifics in the message). Now, according to Tesla, Model Y is the most energy-efficient electric car in its class.

Last year, Tesla produced 302,301 copies of Model 3, production facilities at the plant in Fremont (California, USA) allow a total production of 500,000 copies of Model 3 and Model Y.

The Model Y Long Range version with a capacious battery is currently sold in the United States at a price of $ 52,990. There is no new information on a cheaper modification with a power reserve of 370 kilometers and a price tag of $ 40,000. Apparently, as expected earlier, it will enter the market in 2021.
