Cars come from Shanghai, however, not from Grunheide

Tesla Model Y will be delivered in Europe from August 2021-delivered

Tesla will deliver the Model Y in Germany from August or September. The electric SUV does not come from the new Tesla factory in Grunheide near Berlin, but from Shanghai. The exact start of delivery remains a little unclear

According to Wirtschaftswoche, delivery should begin in August. The first Model Y copies are to be handed over in Germany in August, according to the article, citing an announcement by Tesla on Friday.

In the German Tesla configurator, however, "September" is now the expected delivery date for the basic version. Apparently this relates to cars that are now being configured. Different order dates could be the reason for the different information: It is likely that older orders will be served from August, new ones from September.

Recently there were rumors about the model Y being extradited starting this summer. The Tesla expert with the Twitter name Troy Teslike had forecast two weeks ago that in the third quarter (which began in July) 7,000 copies of the approximately 30,500 Model Y models built in Shanghai will be shipped to Europe.

Originally, the Model Y was supposed to be built in July in the new Gigafactory 4 in Grunheide. However, following the difficulties with the factory's approval, the date was postponed to the end of 2021. This date could still be read in the German configurator at the end of June. Now Tesla has apparently decided otherwise.

The reason given for exporting cars built in China to Europe is that more and more compact and mid-range electric SUVs are coming onto the market in this country, for example the VW ID.4, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or the Ford Mustang Mach -E. The electrical specialist Tesla, of all places, does not have a model on offer in this area.

Another reason could be the unclear situation at the Gigafactory in Grunheide: It is not certain whether the new plant can really go into operation at the end of 2021. The environmental agency of the state of Brandenburg has just opened fine proceedings against Tesla, because the company has apparently built unapproved tanks, as the Tagesspiegel reported yesterday. It is uncertain whether a fine will remain. The Left Party has already called for construction to be halted.
