Why Tesla Is Canceling Some Model Y Deliveries In Germany

Tesla Inc TSLA has canceled or delayed deliveries of the Model Y Performance variant for reservation holders in Germany due to defects in some vehicles, Teslarati reported on Sunday.

What Happened: Model Y Performance reservation holders from Germany began reporting cancellations on Saturday through the Tesla Fahrer and Freunde (TFF) online forum.

The Elon Musk-led company is expected to inform more reservation holders of cancellations this week. 

Only some Model Y vehicles are affected by the defects, as per Tesla employees in Germany, the report said, adding that a few reservation holders had already received their cars.  

The defect does not seem to affect Model Y Long Range vehicles or deliveries that are produced in Giga Shanghai and are delivered in Germany.
