If the latest rumours are to believed, Tesla will begin the first deliveries of the highly-anticipated Model Y in just two weeks. The targeted date is January 29, 2020, coinciding with the date of the Tesla Q4 earnings call.
Citing sources within Tesla, there have been several users on social media that have reported the Model Y is way ahead of schedule. Another has also reported that Tesla employees from across North America have been flown to California for Model Y training, and were also told that no phones would be allowed in those sessions. That tweet has since been deleted, but a user did reply to it saying he saw proof of that during his factory tour in California.

When first announced, the Model Y was expected to be released in late 2020. Then during Tesla’s Q3 earnings call, CEO Elon Musk confirmed the Model Y was ahead of schedule, and deliveries would now begin in summer 2020.
Then soon after, there were additional reports the Model Y would be even further ahead of schedule, with deliveries possible in the first quarter of 2020. Since then, more information has led credence to those reports.
Last week, the California Air Resource Board (CARB) certified the Model Y, something which must happen before any car can be sold in California. Then the first Model Y VIN’s began appearing in the NHTSA database.
If this news is true, that could also mean that Full Self-Driving is only two weeks away, as the Tesla website hints that both will arrive at the same time.
