    Tesla Model Y Made in Germany: Video shows the differences between units of the electric SUV produced in China

    Jul 10,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    In a video, a detail-oriented Tesla fan worked out the small but subtle differences between two Model Y electric SUVs that were assembled in the new Gigafactory Berlin and Shanghai.

    With the opening of the Gigafactory in Grünheide near Berlin in the spring, the American electric car manufacturer Tesla caused quite a stir. While the new and not uncontroversial production site should bring great advantages from a logistical point of view in the long term, many potential customers are probably also interested in whether there are quality differences between a Tesla Model Y Made in Germany and an electric SUV of the same model made in China.

    The British YouTuber RSymons RSEV, who privately drives a Tesla Model Y Long Range produced in Shanghai, has now dealt with exactly this topic. In a recently published video, the small differences to the German-made Tesla Model Y Performance are examined, which according to the owner has an overall more comfortable chassis despite the larger 21-inch rims. The quality of the white paintwork is also said to be excellent, although he believes the electric SUVs produced in Shanghai are similarly good.

    In the interior of the Tesla Model Y from the Gigafactory Berlin, a few detailed changes to the materials used were also found, and the American manufacturer has also made a few improvements to the built-in speakers and amplifier compared to the China model. The upholstery on the otherwise identical-looking front seats in the Tesla Model Y is said to now offer more lateral support, while the new parcel shelf in the trunk is probably the most noticeable change to the German-built electric SUV.

    Last but not least, it should be noted that Tesla could also apply many of these small detail improvements to Model Ys produced in China in the future. In the past, the electric car manufacturer had gradually introduced such upgrades at its various production sites around the world. At this point in time, buyers of a Tesla Model Y manufactured in the German Gigafactory can still look forward to purchasing one of the manufacturer's currently best possible vehicles.
