Drive Tesla Canada also received reports that Model Y owners in Ontario were informed that trucks with Model Y were en route to Tesla Oakville. If all goes well, deliveries may begin there this weekend or early next week.

Tesla has been assembling its new car for the mass market for several months now. Like competitors, company had to stoped the operation because of COVID-19. Scaling up production at a major factory in Fremont, California, which has been moving forward ever since, has not yet gone smoothly.

Although the company is able to resume all production operations, nevertheless, the production of Model Y manufactured 6 months ahead of schedule, still feels some negative influence. But, despite the difficulties, Tesla still coped well with the COVID-19 crisis, so there is every reason to believe that soon the Model Y production will gain momentum and even more owners will receive their long-awaited vehicles.
