The latest speculation to sweep social media – and this time citing “informed sources” within Tesla, suggests that the first deliveries of the Tesla Model Y electric crossover will begin in two weeks.
As Tesla prepares to report on its outlook and earnings for the fourth quarter of 2019 next Wednesday (Jan 29) amid a strong stock rally that has seen its shares nearly treble since June 2019, the “confirmation” from Twitter user Moez via a Tesla employee is another signal that Tesla’s newest and potentialy biggest selling model is due for imminent release.

It follows news that Model Y Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) can now be searched and listing of the Model Y to the Tesla’s manufacturer’s list on the NHTSA website, as well as certification of the Model Y by the Californian Air Resources Board (CARB) on January 9.
The Model Y – which was originally slated for a release in the US fall (autumn) and subsequently brought forward three months – is Tesla’s fourth production electric car and its second high-volume model after the very successful Tesla Model 3.
It was first unveiled to a global audience in March 2019 and will first be available in the US in a rear-wheel drive Long Range variant from $US43,700 ($63,517 converted), as well as an all-wheel drive Long Range from $US47,700 ($A69,331 converted) and all-wheel drive Performance from $US56,700 ($A82,412 converted).
