Tesla pushed back Model Y production start date to 2020


Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed the automaker would be pushing back the start of production of its Model Y SUV to likely 2020 instead of the 2019 release it’d promised less than a year ago.

“I would say it’s probably closer to 24 months from now… 2020 is a more likely prospect,” Musk said of the launch date early May, according to Motor Authority.

The Model 3-based SUV won’t be built in the company’s flagship Fremont, California factory either, Musk said, since that facility is already “jammed to the gills” turning out Model S, X and 3 vehicles. Instead, Tesla will assemble the Model Y in a new plant. Read more about the Tesla pushed back Model Y...
