Tesla has launched 2 new colours for Model Y vehicles that are produced in Giga factory in Berlin. The new colours are Midnight Cherry Red and Quicksilver.
We have shared some images and videos below of the new colours which are pretty nice looking. Surprisingly, the colours are replacing 2 of the existing colours. Midnight Silver Metallic is replaced with QuickSilver and Multi Coat Red is replaced with Midnight Cherry Red. This is likely to keep manufacturing complications to a minimum as Giga Berlin is ramping up production.
The prices of the new colours have also seen a significant increase. Previously Midnight Silver Metallic was €1600, its replacement QuickSIlver now costs €3000. The Multi Coat Red replacement, Midnight Cherry Red is now €3200, a €1200 increase. These are obviously substantial increases, but we expect them to be popular colours, Tesla owners have often complained about the limited number of colours avaiable to them, whilst the number of colours hasn’t increased, a change of the ‘norm’ will be welcomed.
Unfortunately the colours won’t be available to everyone. When selecting the new colours on the Tesla german website it reads the following, Developed in Gigafactory Berlin. Only available in Europe and the Middle East.
Elon Musk has also tweeted that the colours can only be prod at Giga Berlin due to the specially built paint shop.
Tesla followed up Elon’s tweets with some more information on the new colours and painting process.
“Our most advanced paint system yet, allowing up to 13 layers for depth, dimension & a hand-painted look”. It went on to say “Both are made from highly-pigmented metallic paint, designed to change depending on viewing angle & light”
Prior to Giga Berlin opening Musk tweeted that the paintshop there would be one of the best in the world.
