Tesla is currently in the testing phase of the Model Y crossover development. Testing outside means more sightings, the most recent being a beautiful new bright red prototype spotted at Gigafactory 1. There have been other sightings of the Model Y prototype being tested around Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto. Another prototype was spotted in Washington state indicating that Tesla likely started long-distance testing for the Model Y program.

Now a new Model Y prototype in bright red has been spotted at what appears to be Tesla Gigafactory 1 in Nevada (via @TeslaOwnersofMA on Twitter):
Like several previous prototypes, it features a chrome delete, but this one is all-black and contrasting with the color of the body, which makes for an interesting look. The prototype also appears to be charging at Tesla Gigafactory 1 in Nevada, where Tesla plans to produce the Model Y’s drivetrain and battery pack.
The Tesla Model Y, unveiled in March this year is an all-electric crossover based on Model 3 with up to 300 miles of range and is ramping up to start shipping in fall 2020
