Tesla Cuts Model Y Delivery Times in China to at Least 4 Weeks

Tesla has reduced delivery waiting times for its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in China

Shanghai: Electric vehicle giant Tesla said Thursday it has reduced delivery waiting times in China for its Model 3 and Model Y cars as production ramped up at its Shanghai plant after upgrading production lines.

Wait times for rear-wheel drive Model Y SUVs range from four to eight weeks, while buyers of other versions of Model 3 SUVs and sedans wait 12 to 20 weeks. Tesla previously said that Chinese buyers will have to wait eight to 24 weeks after ordering the best-selling model.

Tesla has confirmed reduced wait times, which was first revealed on the company’s Chinese website, and cited increased production at its Shanghai plant as one of the reasons.

The company said the automaker typically delivers more Shanghai-built cars to Chinese customers in the second half of each quarter, which has also led to faster deliveries.

Tesla has completed major upgrades to its production lines at its most productive manufacturing hub, Shanghai, and is ramping up production, aiming to produce 22,000 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles per week.

CEO Elon Musk said production is a bigger challenge for the company than demand. It is ramping up production at its plants in Berlin and Texas, while production losses during Shanghai’s two-month COVID-19 shutdown hurt Tesla’s margins in the second quarter.

The company has stopped taking orders for Cybertruck outside North America, as well as Model 3 Long Range vehicles in the US and Canada, citing a backlog of deliveries.
