Tesla Model Y deliveries in Malaysia set to begin next week

Tesla will start deliveries of the Model Y in Malaysia next week, more than eight months after the world’s most popular car went on sale in the Southeast Asian country.

All the way back in mid-July 2023 Tesla launched in Malaysia, opening up their Design Studio to customers for the first time with the Model Y.

According to the online configurator, the first deliveries were scheduled to begin in early 2024, and right on schedule, the first Model Ys will be handed over to customers next week, according to a report from local publication Soyacincau.

Interestingly, deliveries of the Model Y will take place nearly four months after deliveries of the updated Model 3 started in the country, despite the electric SUV going on sale months earlier.

Malaysia was among one of the first countries in the world to receive the upgraded Model 3 from Giga Shanghai in November, even though order orders for the electric sedan only opened up in October.

All three variants of the Model Y are available to order in Malaysia. Pricing starts at RM199,000 (C$56,600) for the Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) version, RM246,000 (C$69,900) for the Long Range, and RM288,000 (C$81,900) for the Performance.
