According to Reuters, three people familiar with the matter have revealed that Tesla is preparing to revamp production of its best-selling Model Y.
Two of the people, who requested anonymity, said the Model Y revamp involved the exterior and interior of the crossover electric vehicle, which aims to begin production in 2024, and which Tesla has given a codename to project: Project Juniper.
Reuters previously reported that Tesla is already working to revamp its Shanghai factory in preparation for a revamped version of its Model 3 sedan, a project the company calls Highland. Production of the Highland version of the Model 3 is expected to begin in Shanghai in September, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Through Project Highland, Tesla is making improvements to its Model 3 sedan to lower production costs and make the electric sedan more attractive, according to people involved in the project. The Model 3 first hit the market in 2017. Alongside looks and dynamic performance, there will also be a focus on improving production efficiency, they said.
Since January, the suspension system of the Model Y produced in China has been upgraded to improve the comfort of the vehicle on low-speed bumpy roads, reduce the vibration transmitted to the body, and at the same time ensure It also has excellent support when changing lanes quickly and cornering.
