Tesla Model Y Deliveries Officially Roll Out In Europe
After a long wait, Tesla finally began delivering its electric SUV — the powerful Model Y, in Europe.
The Model Y invasion has begun, prepare yourselves
If you’ve been waiting for your Model Y to arrive and you live in Europe, then you might not need to wait any longer.
Deliveries of the highly-anticipated electric SUV have officially started to roll out. Multiple Model Y’s have been spotted out in the open in recent weeks, but now we know for sure.
Check out the below LinkedIn post from Can Dogan, a senior Tesla advisor at its service centre in Dortmund, Germany:
Germany isn’t the only country either. The Model Y has been spotted in other European markets, like the Netherlands and Norway.
Tesla had originally announced the Model Y back in March of 2020. First units were delivered to American buyers nearly a year later.
The original plan was to craft the Model Y at the American automaker’s Giga Berlin. But plans soon shifted due to countless delays/stoppages. Tesla then handed the task to its gigafactory in Shanghai — a factory that will more than likely house the majority of Cybertruck builds very soon.

As we’ve reported previously, Tesla sees Giga Shanghai as its main vehicle export hub. So it should come as no surprise that it has shipped vehicles from East to West in order to meet deliveries.
Giga Shanghai can now produce 1,000 Model Y vehicles a week to give you an idea of its viability.
Back in April of this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted that the Model Y could become one of the world’s best-selling vehicles in terms of revenue by 2022. And then, by 2023, the electric SUV could top the charts from a units sold standpoint.
