Tesla currently produces Model Y with 5 seats, but the automaker has been promising a 7-seat configuration and Elon Musk has now updated the timeline.
The fact that it supports a 7-seat configuration was probably the biggest surprise when the SUV was unveiled last year.
At the unveiling, we couldn’t get a good look at the third-row seat and Tesla has so far only produced the 5-seat version of the Model Y.
Last night, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that the 7-seat Model Y should go in production “probably in early Q4.”
It would place the first deliveries around October or November of 2020.
Now the big question is how Tesla is going to deliver those two extra seats.
Over the last year since Tesla unveiled the Model Y prototype, we got a few glimpses at the third-row seat and it has raised concerns about its usefulness due to its extremely limited legroom.
It led to people suggesting that Tesla might actually go with rear-facing seats for the production version of the 7-seater Model
