The Tesla Model Y has now been added to the automaker’s used inventory section of its website after first hitting the market six months ago.
Earlier this week Tesla added the Model Y as an option in the used inventory search, but after trying numerous US zip codes we were unable to find any inventory in stock.
Today, our friend Ryan at The Kilowatts noticed Tesla has begun adding used Model Y’s to its website in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have categorized them as “New”. This now gives potential owners the option to save $2,000 for cars with only a few thousand miles on them.
Update: According to one of our readers, these cars are listed in the “New” section as they were demo vehicles previously. Under US law, since they haven’t been owned by an individual, they are still considered new, and still qualify for incentives (if applicable).
Tesla is now selling a small number of Model Y in inventory – Great for anyone looking to save $2000!
This page also suggests that if you swap the 21” Überturnines for the 19” Gemini wheels you could see 8.25% increase in range. #ModelY #Teslahttps://t.co/R7Lahi7qEz pic.twitter.com/ImuLFHeEFS

As Ryan notes, Tesla is also giving owners the option to swap out the 21″ Überturbine wheels for the smaller Gemini wheels. Make the switch, and Tesla says you can increase your range by 8.25%.
Unfortunately the option to purchase a used Model Y is limited to the US, as Canadians still only see the Model 3, Model S, and Model X on the used inventory page.
