Tesla Model Y production has begun months early

Production of the Tesla Model Y crossover has officially commenced at the company's Fremont factory in California. In its 2019 fourth quarter earnings report, released overnight, Tesla said it has begun producing the Model Y this month. Essentially a high-riding take on the Model 3, the Y is designed to tap into rampant global demand for mid-sized crossovers, and will go head-to-head with cars like the Fisker Ocean when it launches.

Tesla Cybertruck: Yes, this is it! On sale in US now from $39,900, Australian plans uncertain

Do not adjust your eyes. This is not something from Mad Max or any other science fiction movie. This is the Tesla Cybertruck and it’s fair to say no-one expected it to look like this. Tesla claims it will be the toughest pick-up truck in the world, with a stainless steel body that can handle a 9mm bullet or a hit from a sledge hammer, and comes with super-strength glass.
