At the same time, the delay turned out to be quite serious. Tesla crossovers will reach customers no earlier than the second quarter of this year.

American electric car maker Tesla has made an uncomfortable announcement for Chinese residents. It concerns the supply of Model Y crossovers. Initially, it was assumed that the first buyers will be able to receive their cars as early as this month, but now they decided to postpone deliveries to the second quarter of 2021. Tesla’s official website reports.

In China, the most affordable Tesla Model Y will cost 339,900 yuan ($ 52,600), while the brand’s dealers charge 369,900 yuan ($ 57,200) for the high-performance Performance version.

Previously, information appeared that the first Tesla Model Y, which is assembled in China, will first be handed over to the plant employees. This will be done for quality control and timely correction of all deficiencies.

Note that Tesla Model Y is the second model to be assembled at the brand’s new plant in Shanghai.

The debut car was the Tesla Model 3 sedan. This model has proven itself from a reliable side, after which it was decided to start deliveries to Europe.

We previously reported that the cheapest version of the Tesla Model Y crossover went on sale, featuring a single electric motor and a standard battery. At the same time, Tesla has prepared other interesting versions for this car.
