Tesla Model Y has shone like a bright star since its inception at the company's Fremont factory. The demand for the model clearly exceeds the current production capacity, but Giga Shanghai is actively entering the production process. The parking lot at Tesla's Chinese factory is almost completely filled with China-made Model Ys, which will be delivered shortly.
Tesla Model Y is in very high demand in China, and attracts thousands of customers every day. Orders for the highly anticipated SUV have reportedly surpassed 100,000. At the same time, stores that already have Model Y on display are overwhelmed with potential customers, while other automakers' stores resemble a desert.
In Beijing's Huiju shopping mall, there are three car exhibition halls, Tesla, NiO and weltmeister. After the release of MIC model y, let's take a look at the situation of the three stores at the same time. Because Tesla has too many customers, it has to wait at the door to enter pic.twitter.com/qRkvQVkztR— 天天越野跑 (@tiantianyueye) January 3, 2021
Meanwhile, Giga Shanghai is ramping up production of Model Y. In images taken by Jason Yang, hundreds of Model Ys can be seen, which are located in the central parking lot and occupy a disproportionate part of it. A flyby of the plant also reveals that SUVs are located in other parts of it.

The SUV segment is extremely popular, so the demand for Model Y will continue to grow over time. With experience organizing and ramping up production with Model 3, a quick start to the production of Model Y for Tesla's China team should go smoothly.
