// Leaked documents show Model Y plans
Tesla planned a production ramp up to 7,000 units per week of the Model Y crossover SUV at Gigafactory 1 and 5,000 per week at its (currently unbuilt) China Gigafactory by the end of 2020/early 2021.
The Model Y, according to the leaked documents, as a crossover SUV is going to be built on the Model 3's platform, but with a 3rd row of seats
A Tesla spokesperson asked about the documents said that they were outdated and no longer accurate
The documents were given to Business Insider by a former employee, who said they were given to the engineering team after their work on the Model 3 was completed, to start on the Model Y
Experts note that this would be a very aggressive timeline for a new vehicle production ramp up, particularly considering experiences with the Model 3 “logistics hell” and “bleeding money”
At the same time, with the vehicle based largely on the Model 3, it wouldn't require too much new engineering or production tweaks
