Tesla has launched an online order configurator for Model Y in the UK. The first Long Range deliveries are scheduled for early 2022, with Performance planned to arrive in mid-2022.
The Tesla Model Y configurator has already launched in the UK and the first customers will be able to receive their vehicles in early 2022. The right-hand-drive version of Tesla's compact crossover will be available in Long Range and Performance variants starting at £54,990 (about $75,500) and £64,990 (about $89,300), respectively.
The first sales of RHD Model Ys began in July 2021 in Hong Kong, making the administrative region of China the first market in the world to start selling them. The UK is likely to become the second market in the world to start selling the RHD Model Y. Local customers are very strong Tesla fans. In September, Model 3 became the best-selling car in the country, showing a clear shift in interest in the manufacturer's vehicles.
Currently, only the five-seat Model Y is available for ordering. Deliveries of the Long Range version will begin in early 2022, according to information on Tesla's website. However, those wishing to order the Performance version will have to wait a bit, as deliveries will start only in the middle of next year. For the time being, the cars are expected to be shipped from Giga Shanghai, however at some point next year, deliveries are likely to start from Giga Berlin, which is due to start production in late 2021.
Along with the launch of orders in the UK, an online order configurator was also launched in Ireland. The Long Range Model Y starts at €63,990 (about $74,240), while Performance costs €72,990 (about $84,680).
