“We are working to accelerate the production of RHD Model Y. I didn’t expect the demand to be so high! ” Elon Musk said on Twitter in response to a tweet about strong demand for electric crossovers.

Without the advanced autopilot or FSD options, the Model Y and Model 3 still feature Adaptive Cruise, Lane-Keep Assist, and Blind-Spot Assist.
Despite the less popular sedan layout, the Model 3 has become the most popular electric car in Australia. Model Y can perform better because of its love for Australian SUVs.
