In mid-October, Tesla opened the Model Y order page in the UK. Since then, customers have been awaiting arrival of their highly anticipated vehicles. Although the date of the first deliveries was listed as early 2022, no more precise information was provided. In early January, Tesla sent out emails to its customers inviting them to test Model Y, which was the first significant indication that deliveries would soon begin. As expected, the manufacturer began deliveries in the country in mid-February.
Demand for Model Y continues to grow and the company aims to expand its delivery to all markets. As the start of production at Giga Berlin continues to be delayed, Tesla's Chinese factory has taken over the load. According to recently released data, Giga Shanghai delivered 59,845 units in January, up 286.5% year on year, 40,499 of which were for export.
