As finest we will inform, orders are open in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, Sweden, and Finland.
So, virtually in every single place in Europe. Sadly, Romania, the UK, Eire, and “Different Europe” all appear to be unnoticed thus far. Whereas Tesla has particular person order websites for every of those nations, the one present possibility is to “keep knowledgeable” or to order a Mannequin 3, however no Mannequin Y but.

At present, the 1,600kg tow hitch just isn’t accessible as a manufacturing facility possibility, and can have to be bought and put in after supply. Tow hitches are fairly fashionable throughout Europe, so that is one thing to think about for any Europeans who may be planning a September roadtrip with their brand-new Mannequin Y. The seven-seat inside can be not accessible for orders but.
Whereas Lengthy Vary fashions will likely be delivered in September, Efficiency fashions will come later – for them, estimated supply is listed as “2022.”
Tesla had beforehand deliberate to ship European Mannequin Ys from their Berlin Gigafactory, however manufacturing has been delayed, and it appears they gained’t be capable of hit their mid-2021 goal.
So slightly than ready for Berlin to come back on-line, Tesla will reportedly be transport automobiles from Shanghai to Europe with the intention to get automobiles on the street faster.
Regardless of that European Mannequin Ys will likely be coming from China, the brand new Chinese language Commonplace Vary Mannequin Y just isn’t at the moment accessible on Tesla’s European order web site.
Oddly, on the positioning, Tesla states that the Mannequin Y Lengthy Vary has an “estimated” vary of 505km.

Europe makes use of the WLTP check protocol, so the vary must be the identical between the 2 areas. We’re undecided why Tesla is exhibiting the decrease estimated quantity for EU orders, however maybe that will likely be raised sooner or later to harmonize with the WLTP protocol.
