Tesla opened an order page for the Model Y in Taiwan, delighting many customers. The cars will be imported from Germany as they will be built at Giga Berlin.

On Friday, Tesla fans in Taiwan received great news: the long-awaited Model Y is now available for order in the country. An owner of several of the manufacturer's cars, @hsumacher/Twitter, wrote that he would finally be able to complete his collection by adding the Model Y to the existing S, 3, and X. He also revealed that the Model Y for Taiwan will be produced at Giga Berlin and, accordingly, delivered from Germany.

According to the order page, the first deliveries of Model Y will start as early as Q4 2022. The Long Range version costs NTD 2,299,900 (about $72,450), and the Performance version is NTD 2,599,900 (about $81,900). The vehicles will be fitted with CCS2 plugs.

Although Tesla's website does not list the country of manufacture of the vehicles, @hsumacher has received confirmation that they will be manufactured at Giga Berlin, in Germany. Obviously, such a measure was taken due to the complex geopolitical relations between China and Taiwan, which have serious restrictions on trade, including cars.

Tesla cars are very popular in Taiwan. For example, in August with 1,774 sales, Model 3 was the second best-selling car in the country, behind only the Toyota Corolla Cross. In the electric car market, Model 3 was the only bright spot, as its closest competitor, BMW iX, only sold 69 vehicles.
