Rumors are that Tesla is about to start Model Y production, but the automaker is still in the middle of its test program as two Model Y prototypes were spotted all the way in Boulder, Colorado.

In March of last year, Tesla unveiled the Model Y, an all-electric crossover based on Model 3, with up to 300 miles of range.

Over the second half of 2019, Tesla has been conducting some Model Y tests on public roads.

The Model Y prototype sightings ramped up with several different vehicles spotted mainly in California and on the West Coast.


Tesla has been ramping up its tests on public roads, and several more Model Y prototypes have been spotted in testing, including one in the snow in the mountains in California.


Model Y prototype sightings are increasing as Tesla seems to have a lot of prototypes on the road.

In Minnesota, there were two prototypes and now two other Model Y prototypes have been spotted in Boulder, Colorado:

The two Model Y prototypes seem to have been put through their paces based on how they look:

They also have the new wheels that we have seen on a few Model Y prototypes in the past few months.

Interestingly, the wheels are not featured on the Model Y configurator and it’s not clear if they will make it to production.

CEO Elon Musk said that he expects Tesla to hit volume Model Y production by mid-2020, which means that production would start in the next few months.

Earlier this month, we reported that Tesla Model Y got its CARB certification, hinting at deliveries potentially starting soon.

Tesla is expected to give a better idea of the Model Y production and delivery timing during its earnings results tomorrow.
