Timelines for Vehicles and Variants

by Moderator

There have been many changes over the years, and Tesla does not make changes to any kind of regular schedule. There are no model year changes, as new variants are put into production as soon as they are ready. This allows Tesla to stay way ahead of the competition but can make it difficult to know what’s in a specific vintage car. These lists show the dates of most of the major changes to each vehicle type. (Feb-2021)
