Tesla has announced that it is going to start production of the Model Y SUV in 2021 in Texas (Austin) and Germany.
Despite the pandemic and the auto supply chain crisis, Musk’s company reported record deliveries during the quarter thanks to sales of cheaper models, including Model 3 sedans and Model Y crossovers, Reuters notes.
Tesla unveiled its fastest EV in June. The new version of the Model S is called Plaid. It can pick up a speed of almost 100 km / h in two seconds, and in general can reach it up to 320 km/h.
The day before, on July 26, Business Insider, citing sources, said that Tesla Energy had asked a team of more than 20 employees to examine social networks and websites for complaints about the company.
In addition to solving problems, employees tried to convince customers to remove critical reviews about Musk.
