Tesla Mannequin Y Refresh May Not Be Occurring This 12 months, However There’s A Catch

The long-rumored refresh of Tesla’s Mannequin Y won’t occur in 2024 in any case.

That is based on the parents behind Tesla app Teslascope, who declare they’ve obtained the speaking factors despatched to Tesla staff by the corporate itself.

The speaking factors are apparently particularly designed to qualm prospects’ fears about shopping for the Mannequin Y simply earlier than the (formally unannounced) refresh occurs.

“We heard your suggestions that some prospects are ready to put their Mannequin Y order as they anticipate a refresh much like Mannequin 3,” the textual content of the speaking factors says. “It can be crucial that we talk transparently that there isn’t a refresh for Mannequin Y launching this yr.”

Teslascope itself added that, opposite to latest stories, its timeline “continues to confidently word {that a} refresh shouldn’t be anticipated till the very finish of this yr, going into Q1-Q2 of 2025.”

All this would possibly sound odd to people who observe Tesla. The corporate launched a refreshed model of its Mannequin 3 final yr; given how related the Mannequin Y and Mannequin 3 are, this spurred rumors {that a} equally revamped Mannequin Y was coming, too. Quite a few stories, together with one from Reuters, claimed that Tesla will begin manufacturing of a refreshed Mannequin Y, codenamed Juniper, someday in 2024. The corporate additionally just lately launched a barely refreshed model of the Mannequin Y, albeit in China.

So what is the take care of this newest report from Teslascope? Properly, it would very effectively transform true, however solely in North America. The speaking factors quoted above are for North American Tesla staff. And the refreshed Mannequin 3 was launched in Europe months earlier than it got here to the U.S. So it is fairly potential that Tesla goals to launch the upgraded Mannequin Y in Europe and China in 2024, however wait till subsequent yr earlier than it begins promoting it in North America.

The parents from Teslascope confirmed it is a doubtless state of affairs, saying that “all eyes are on Shanghai and/or Berlin.”

The brand new Tesla Mannequin Y will most likely get related upgrades because the refreshed Mannequin 3, which launched in Europe in September 2023.

What does all this imply for potential patrons? Properly, if you happen to’re in Europe or China, and trying to purchase a brand new Mannequin Y, you would possibly need to await the refresh. Positive, it would nonetheless be fairly a protracted wait (the refreshed Mannequin 3 got here out in Europe in September 2023), however if you happen to dig these slick headlights, new taillights on the skin, as effectively an extra show, LED lighting, and higher noise isolation within the cabin, you need to most likely await the brand new one — the Mannequin 3 bought these enhancements, and it is doubtless that the Mannequin Y will get related ones as effectively.

In case you’re within the U.S., it won’t be well worth the wait. The refreshed Mannequin 3 launched greater than 4 months within the U.S. after its European debut; if the Mannequin Y follows in the identical footsteps, it’s going to take almost a yr earlier than it will get to North America.
