Tesla Model Y will arrive earlier than expected
Announced for years by Elon Musk, the long-awaited Tesla Model Y was unveiled last March, after several announcements and teasers of all kinds launched by the capricious car tycoon. As usual, Californian society has been rather evasive on the launch date of his small SUV, which in the price list is placed under the Model X, given the rather usual delays in production, as evidenced by the stormy beginnings of the Model 3 Debunchi. But there is good news: Tesla Model Y would even be ready earlier than expected, as announced by the brand through a statement to the media.
Initially planned forautumn 2020, the Model Y production launch has been brought forward for next summer, thanks to developments at the production sites. And for good reason, given that the SUV will not only be produced at the California plant in Fremont, but also via the assembly lines of the new Gigafactory inaugurated in Shanghai earlier this year: “The installation of the equipment needed to manufacture the Model Y is underway and with a view to launch next year.” Good news never comes by itself, Tesla announces that it is also profitable in the third quarter with a net profit of 143 million dollars. This increase in revenues can be explained in particular by a decrease in the costs incurred by the company.
