Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk admits that “there are production and supply chain ramp challenges with Model Y”.
According to Bloomberg, currently the American EV manufacturer is having issues boosting output of the new Tesla Model Y crossover. To troubleshoot production snafus, Musk promises to visit the assembly line every week.
He believes they are going through the problems which normally take place during the launch of a new product.
Tesla’s boss predicts the Model Y will eventually surpass the company’s top seller – the Model 3 sedan, and even will be able to outsell all current vehicles in the lineup of the brand.
The Tesla Model Y starts at $39,000 for a Standard Range version. Expect it on the market in early 2021.
The Long Range and Performance variants with dual-motor all-wheel drive are currently being delivered.
Tesla positions the Model Y as the safest mid-size SUV ever and the highly-efficient vehicle in terms of energy usage.
