Tesla delivered the first Model Y to a customer in Australia, after ship carrying vehicles reached the coast just a few days ago. This is the next step toward expanding into the global market.
The first Model Y was delivered to a customer in Canberra, Australia, according to the local technology website techAU. Article author Jason Cartwright found an image of a car dated August 4, 2022, delivered to a customer. It was a Pearl White Multicoat Standard Range with a white interior. According to the information, official deliveries were supposed to start on August 5, but it looks like someone was lucky enough to get the car earlier.
Deliveries of Model Y in Australia and also in New Zealand are continuing at the moment, as a large number of them have arrived. In areas farther from the ports, deliveries may start a little later, as Tesla will take longer to deliver the vehicles to the delivery centers and then hand them over to customers.
Australia and New Zealand waited a long time for Model Y deliveries to begin. While it was already available in all of the manufacturer's markets, the company's customers in Australia and New Zealand could not access them. Initially, deliveries were scheduled for an earlier time, but due to the COVID-19 lockdown in China, plans had to be changed. However, now Tesla can continue to expand around the world.
