In early 2021, Chinese Model Y, as reported in the Chinese press on August 20, is about to start rolling out its production line in Shanghai's gigafactory.

In March of last year, Model Y, the second SUV by Tesla, was launched. Initially, deliveries were not expected to start until Fall of 2020, but exports to the United States began late March of this year, ahead of schedule due to an improved production line and smooth release.
Back in July of this year there were several available vacancies for 1000 employees in Shanghai. According to media sources, it was planned to recruit staff to develop the Model Y.
