Tesla released its first official picture of the model Y model in production, as well as a production line picture, suggesting a breakthrough in the body manufacturing technology it had previously discussed.Tesla recently announced that model y had been put into production earlier this January when it released its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2019, and delivery of model y would begin in March.
According to media reports, in the past year, as part of Tesla's extensive testing program, the prototype model y before it was put into production has appeared on public roads. But according to the official picture of Tesla's first model y production model released this time, the vehicle seems to have improved compared with the original prototype model unveiled in March 2019.
Now, Tesla is sharing the first official picture of model y in production. If compared with the original prototype model, it can be found that the first official picture of model y put into production confirms that Tesla is in the process of developing the chromium removal (removal of chrome trim) standard, which is the first practical measure of Tesla vehicles, but it is a very popular practice in the after-sales modification of car owners.
In addition, Tesla has made some design improvements, especially in the front end of the electric SUV.
With the release of model Y's first official production image, Tesla also shared a series of images of its model y production line at its Fremont plant in California.
These pictures show the flow line production scene of the body part of the model y, which Tesla says is where it focuses.
Last year, Tesla's chief executive, Elon Musk, said in a media interview that the company was turning to aluminum casting design instead of providing a range of stamping steel and aluminium sheets for Model Y. "When we get a large casting machine, the body will be reduced from 70 parts to 1, which will significantly reduce the capital cost of all machines assembling these parts together," he said at the time.
This means a major breakthrough in body building, and the official image just released is the first visual evidence Tesla has provided us to make this effort a reality.
The carmaker has designed a giant new machine that has almost produced the frame of the car as a whole.
With the launch of the launch model version, Tesla has also found other ways to improve vehicle energy efficiency, increasing model Y's single charge mileage to 315 miles (507 kilometers).
