The electric hybrid, which is an opponent for the Ford Mustang Mach-E that we as of late delegated Sunday Times Car of the Year 2021, was first divulged in March 2019 and North American clients started to accept their vehicles in April 2020, so similarly as with past Tesla models, British drivers have confronted a significant delay for the right-hand drive form to be put at a bargain.
Two adaptations accessible
Two renditions of the Model Y are accessible in the Tesla Design Studio from today: the Model Y Long Range AWD (all-wheel drive) and Model Y Performance.
Both are just accessible in a five seat setup at dispatch; when Driving.co.uk got some information about the seven-seat rendition Tesla said it’s anything but a choice in Europe and that “there isn’t a course of events for future choices right now”. This recommends the choice of a third line of seats hasn’t been precluded yet additionally isn’t affirmed at this stage.
The Model Y Long Range AWD (all-wheel drive) will be sent first, says Tesla. It accompanies 19in or 20in wheels, two electric engines, 315 miles of reach (WLTP), a maximum velocity of 135mph and a 0-60mph season of 4.8sec. Costs start at £54,990.
The Model Y Performance, as the name proposes, adds additional force to the detriment of some productivity. Tesla didn’t deliver its WLTP range however American controllers put the authority shortage contrasted and the Long Range AWD at 23 miles.
On the in addition to side, the Performance form rides on more outwardly engaging 21in wheels, maximum velocity increments to 155mph and the 0-60mph occasions drops to 3.5sec. Costs start at £64,990 and the primary vehicles are assessed to be conveyed in mid-2022.

Will Tesla Model Y UK conveyances start on schedule?
While Tesla gauges clients in the UK will begin accepting their vehicles from mid 2022, there are presently delays in the inventory of new vehicles around the world, because of a deficiency of semiconductors, while customs bottlenecks because of Covid-19 and Brexit, and the broadly revealed setback in HGV drivers across Europe, could represent an issue for UK purchasers.
Be that as it may, in its Q1 income bring in April, Tesla was playful with regards to how it has managed the semiconductor issue, revealing: “In Q1, we had the option to explore through worldwide chip supply lack issues partially by turning amazingly rapidly to new microcontrollers, while at the same time creating firmware for new chips made by new providers.”
One month from now Tesla will bring on the web a new “gigafactory” in Berlin — the organization’s first European plant — however the Model Ys moving off that creation line will all be left-hand-drive renditions bound for central area Europe.
English right-hand-drive vehicles will be delivered from Tesla’s creation office in Shanghai, China, where UK-spec Tesla Model 3s are delivered close by vehicles bound for any semblance of Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
