There's hope for those of you that were holding out for a Tesla SUV according to Reuters. Two sources told them that Tesla is going to begin production of the Model Y SUV in November of next year. Of course we all know about the problems Tesla is having with production of the Model 3 and I'm surprised they would try to ramp up production on a new model when they haven't worked all the bugs out of current production. Regardless, November of next year is a long way off and a lot can change between now and then. Good luck, Tesla. The two sources said suppliers could be estimating an annual production of 500,000 vehicles in the United States, with much lower volume in China, likely in the tens of thousands. Building 500,000 Model Ys per year would be the equivalent of what Musk has planned for total production in Fremont by the end of this year, although the company is nowhere near that volume.
