I would like to get in line for my model Y. When would you say the gates are going to open?
Thank you for your time,
I look forward to riding with you,
We have no idea when Model Y will even start production. We just got a vague timeline of maybe 2020 for production.

<< Pre-Order the Model Y ... I would like to get in line for my model Y. >>
So would I.
However, I would not order it, unless it is the mirrorless version I've been looking for since 2013. To achieve this, aside from the required tech, Tesla would have to overcome the NHTSA stupidity and inertia, by submitting the camera+display substitute for the mirror system, along with the MY schematics itself.
Yet, the mirrorless feature could be further enhanced by:
(1) Jatech "Disappearing Doors"
(2) Quad PM Motor AWD, with 100% Electronic Torque Vectoring
(3) Active (Bose?) suspension that would allow for additional cargo space and the space the Quad Motor topography would require for proper engineering.
The gates won't open before they actual unveil the Model Y, and you'll certainly know when that happens.
How can I preorder the Tesla Y
Wait until March 14th. You may be able to make a reservation online that night.
I seriously doubt that anything on @Remnant's wish list is going to be in there, It is an evolutionary product.
Torque vectoring does NOT work in a car. If you had it, the tires would last about 500 miles if that.
Disappearing doors will not be in there either. Too expensive.
Also, would't those disappearing doors interfere with the battery pack.
Waiting to reserve with $1000 deposit. Happy I did 3 years ago for the Model 3.
1000$ deposit will be taken March 31st 2019. Delivery will start March 1st 2022.
This is going to give me a 3 years off from the forums again
EV is speculating. Tesla's MO is to start collecting deposit $ as soon as possible (probably March 14, even before they pull the curtain off the first Y). They are projecting deliveries late 2020, so EV's March 2022 prediction is probably pretty close. I would make it late 2021 given the number of parts and processes shared with the 3.
Model 3 reservation started early in the day of the actual unveiling. There is no mention of that this time around. If reservation starts at the time of the event, or after it, then good luck if you want to get online the first few hours.
Perhaps Tesla should experiment with giving priority to highest bidders. Just like how dealerships would handle situations like this.
@carlk - Nooooo! Let's hope Tesla does not do the typical dealer scam of inflating the price for hot cars. Tesla can still sell the high-end versions for the first 6 months or so and then offer the cheaper ones later.
TeslaTap Hehe that was sarcasm. People complaining about Tesla's reservation system but they forget how it is trying to be among the first to buy a hot new model from the dealers.
Realize that now - you're always level headed :)
I placed an 7 seat black long range Y at 9:15 pm PT tonight.
Price before tax and fee is 53k.
Cheaper than my Tesla 3.
Website says delivery in 2021.
I placed my reservation and hour ago no email confirmation yet, amount on card is show as pending auth. How long it will take to get an email confirmation, also not showing in my account too.
Anyone know if Tesla prior or current owners will get preference on the Model Y list?
I reserved Model Y 17th of March and have still not got a order conformation by 14th of April. Seems like I paid 1500 dollars for an animated picture of a hedgehog. Calling Tesla motors they can't find my name nor reservation though my bank connection confirmes my money have gone to Tesla Motors. Very disappointing. Seems like I have thrown my money out the window.
Did they drop the Model Y reservation amount? I paid $2,500
No, the reservation amount they claimed me was 1.500 which I paid. But the only order confirmation I received was a RN reference number and picture of a hedgehog. Logging into my Tesla account does not show anything of my order... And calling Tesla motors does not help.. Terrible custom service
Does the deposit go towards the price of the car?
Of course the deposit goes to the price of the car.
The most interesting thing about the Y ordering is that unlike all other Tesla cars now, the Y is still not being configured with Autopilot standard.
