With its first deliveries in several EU territories, including Germany, Belgium, and Norway, Tesla's Model Y became Norway’s best selling EV in Europe in less than one week.
Even though it has been a long wait for Tesla fans, surprisingly Norway’s constantly increasing registration numbers provide an impression of how great the Model Y is being received in a key European EV market. Infact Model Y bookings have beaten registration records of the Volkswagen ID.4 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Model Y’s rule in Norway’s registration chart unveils Tesla’s massive demand in the country.
Tesla had earlier announced that it will start its deliveries of Model Y in China and European markets after achieving new local production at Gigafactory Shanghai and Gigafactory Berlin. China started Model Y deliveries in the market earlier this year quickly adjacent to the Model 3, but Gigafactory Berlin ran into some challenges in starting the production shifting the timeline from July 2021 to October 2021 which theoretically meant that European buyers would have to wait even further before taking delivery of the Tesla’s .
So, the Big T came up with its new strategy. According to a report published on Monday by Electrek, the company decided to ship Chinese-built Model Y vehicles produced at Gigafactory Shanghai to European markets.
Tesla exported over 8,000 vehicles from China last month and the vast majority of those were destined for Europe. The electric vehicle has also been spotted in several other European markets, where deliveries are also anticipated to begin soon.
Tesla’s model Y has already generated a huge buzz in the European market.
It is very likely the UK customers will soon have their hands on Tesla’s Model Y.
