An increasing number of Tesla Model Ys are joining the Tesla Service Vehicle fleet. The company's new compact crossover has been spotted with the Tesla Energy wordmark on it.
@vincent13031925/Twitter spotted the service Model Y in Irvine, California. This car is in the service of the Tesla Energy division. A Tesla employee was fixing the company's charging points.
This isn't the first time Model Y has been spotted in the service of the Tesla Energy division. In early October, Twitter user Rome Strach/ Twitter spotted the service Model Y at Rock Springs, Wyoming. Like the car @vincent13031925 had seen, Model Y had a wordmark that differed from the big red logo we are used to, which is usually located on the rear door.
Tesla Owners San Joaquin Valley/Twitter reported that he also saw the Model Y as a service vehicle in Kettleman, California.
It is a great sign that the company has begun equipping its fleet of the company's service vehicles with Model Y. The crossover has a large trunk (and frunk), which means that, in some cases, it will be able to replace the currently used fuel-powered vans.
Model Y is also cheaper than Model X, making the transition to the company's own electric vehicle more affordable, while speeding up the process. However, in some cases, Tesla will still need to use fuel-powered vehicles for the delivery of bulkier items.
That being said, Cybertruck will be able to handle many tasks of this nature. The pickup truck's characteristics and relatively affordable price make it an ideal candidate for use in Tesla's service fleet. This way, the company will be able to cut its ties with fuel-powered cars once and for all.
