Base version of Tesla’s Model Y ordered now will arrive in 2023


The recent update to Tesla’s website reveals that US customers interested in the Tesla Model Y may have to wait for their car until May 2023.

About a year of waiting is the case for the entry-level version of the Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD, which without selecting any options, has an estimated delivery time (new orders) of February-May 2023. This version costs $62,990 plus $1,200 DST plus $250 order fee ($64,440 total).

Only the base Tesla Model X has a longer standby time (April-July 2023). The base Tesla Model S ordered now is expected in December 2022 – March 2023, while the entry-level Tesla Model 3 will arrive by August-October 2022.

In almost all cases, Tesla says delivery can be sped up a few months if the customer selects a higher version or adds at least one option – like wheels, color, interior. However, this means a higher final price. The reason is clear, Tesla intends to improve its margin, knowing that demand exceeds supply.

As of today, there is still no sign of the new Made-in-Texas (MIT) Tesla Model Y version on the website. According to previous reports, this version was offered to employees for less than $60,000.

Below we have prepared a list of the estimated delivery time of the four cars as of April 27, 2022:
