If you were hoping to get your hands on a Tesla Model Y this year, you are probably out of luck. Demand for the electric SUV is so high, Tesla’s remaining production for 2021 is now sold out in North America.
After raising prices yet again last night to try and temper demand, Tesla’s online configurator shows orders for the more expensive Performance variant won’t arrive until January 2022 in both Canada and the US.
Tesla also updated delivery timelines for the Long Range (LR) variant, pushing them back even further from September to October 2022, a full 11 months in the future.
That is with the standard 19″ Gemini wheels selected. If you opt for the 20″ Induction wheels, the date improves slightly to June 2022.
Even with countless price adjustments that have increased the base price by $8,000 in the US, these long wait times are not likely to change any time soon.
Giga Texas is still under construction, and Tesla has already confirmed that even if production begins before the end of the year, no deliveries of cars built at the new Gigafactory will take place until early next year.
If you are thinking of purchasing a Model Y within the next year, it might be a good idea to place your order now just to get a spot in line.
