Tesla looking to start Model Y production in November 2019
Tesla is looking to start production of its Model Y SUV in the U.S. in November 2019 before setting up a setting up factory in China two years later, two inside sources told Reuters mid-April.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is aiming to move one million examples of the compact crossover per year, despite the fact he admitted April 12 that orders of the Model Y’s sibling, the Model 3, would see a “time shift” of six to nine months’ delay.
