The progress in ramping up production at Giga Texas and consolidating success in increasing production capacity at the Fremont factory already yield their fruits of faster Tesla Model Y deliveries.
Tesla has shortened the delivery time of Model Y Long Range for its customers in the US, which has been noticed by @SawyerMerritt/Twitter.
Merritt tweeted, Tesla Model Y estimated delivery dates have slightly improved for new orders in the US. Here are the changes:
• Model Y LR (base): Mar 2023 - Jul 2023 (from April-Jul 2023)
• Model Y LR (with induction wheels): Dec 2022 - Apr 2023 (Jan 2023 - Apr 2023)
People, who have already taken deliveries from Tesla Giga Texas, have left comments under our Youtube post expressing how much they are pleased with the Giga Texas Model Y quality.
"I took delivery of Austin-built MY LR last week in Boston area. Perfect fit and finish inside and out. Not a single squeak or rattle. Rear cargo cover/shelf, carpeted floor mats, and a chrome rear license plate holder included at no charge," comments Paul G under Torque News Youtube. I am wondering if it came with the 4680 battery.
Tesla deliveries have also improved at Giga Shanghai as Tesla has managed to cut Model 3 and Model Y delivery times in China, an important market for the automaker, after upgrading Gigafactory Shanghai to add more production capacity.
The improvements that Tesla has implemented at its Austin Gigafactory indicate that Tesla continues to successfully increase production at Giga Texas, which is already affecting the speed of deliveries.
Fremont factory and Giga Berlin have also reached record production and delivery numbers recently. I think the shorter wait time will increase the demand for Tesla electric vehicles. However, some people contend saying the rising car prices may still curt or keep the demand for Tesla the same, which is still very high.
