Tesla Model Y goes on display outside of its Fremont seat factory

Tesla recently had a Model Y on display for employees to see outside of its seat factory at 901 Page Street in Fremont, California, roughly 3 miles from the company. In photographs posted by numerous Reddit users, it seems the same deep blue metallic Model Y driven on stage and used for test drives in the car’s unveiling event last month was available in the construction ’s parking lot to get a closer look.

The vehicle on display is outfitted with chrome-delete trim, a look that’s popular with the Tesla aftermarket community yet a typical factory offering for the Model Y. Additionally, the all-electric crossover is seen with Tesla Sport Wheels in the color black. Tesla offers Sport Wheels in silver as a $1,500 option in the Model 3 and Model Y online configurator.

The final manufacturing location for the Model Y is yet to be decided, as noted by CEO Elon Musk during Tesla’s Q1 2019 earnings call. He subsequently estimated a decision on the issue would be produced within the next few weeks, the present close call being between the Fremont factory and Gigafactory 1 in Sparks, Nevada.

Space is limited in Fremont with the Model S, Model 3, and Model X lines currently being produced there, and in Tesla’s Q4 2018 full year update, Musk suggested that the company’s Nevada facility might be the best manufacturing location for Model Y. Musk jokingly hinted that sprung structures, i.e., heavy-duty “tents” similar to those used to help enlarge Model 3 generation, might be an alternative if space was limited wherever Model Y was ultimately made. “I’m a fan of tents, like actual, hardcore tents,” Musk mused.

Tesla’s Model Y is anticipated to be the highest-volume-production vehicle for the business when it goes on sale surpassing the market Model 3. In California, for instance, Tesla was the greatest sold alternative powertrain brand in 2018, and Model 3 represented 55 percent of all battery-electric vehicle sales. The prevalence of the crossover SUV market is driving Model Y sales forecasts, and Elon Musk has anticipated a demand and delivery program that equates to 1 million units per year.

Production of the Model Y is anticipated to take place in 2020 that was late with the first deliveries starting shortly thereafter.
