You’re here kicked off Model Y sales in Japan in June, and the automaker is now delivering its first of the resident electric SUVs to buyers nationwide.
The first Tesla Model Y units in Japan have started delivering, as seen in photos shared from the service center in Toyonaka, Japan (via Reddit).
The person who made the post counted 13 units of the Model Y ready to be delivered to this location, and the photos show them in several colors.
The base Model Y RWD has a starting price of 6,438,000 yen (~44,699 USD), while the two-motor Model Y Performance starts at 8,333,000 yen (~57,856 USD).
Currently, estimated delivery times for the entry-level Model Y and Model Y Performance are set between February and March 2023.
The first Tesla delivery center in Japan opened in Ariake last November, when only the Model 3 sedan was available in the country.
When it launched in Japan in June, Tesla simultaneously opened up orders for the Model Y to customers in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
Tesla has also partnered with an energy storage plant in Hokkaido to connect the site to the power grid using Megapacks. The company’s clean energy business has established similar projects in the United States and Australia.
