When the brand new 2023 Texas-built Tesla Model Y becomes available, it will be available in plenty, as the company is adding new production units. As customers can’t wait to try their hands on the new model, the wait certainly is a long one with customer deliveries not happening until early 2023 for the Performance trim and mid-2023 for the more awaited Long Range trim.
Tesla’s Model Y crossover SUV is the company’s best-selling EV, even better than what Model 3 could achieve. Surprisingly the handling and performance of the car are not at par with that of Model 3. A major part of the credit for its huge sales is the great practicality that the car offers. The vehicle is one of the few rare ones that features a third row of seating.
