Tesla has officially added the option for a Tow Hitch on the Model Y…about a month after deliveries began. What does this mean for early adopters? And for pre-order holders?

If you go to the website to configure the Tesla Model Y, you can now add the option of a Mode Y tow hitch for $1000. When you configure the color of your car, you can now select a Model Y tow hitch:
“High strength, Class II steel tow bar. Capable of towing up to 3,500 lbs”. And this tow rating shows up for all configurations, whether you get the AWD with 19 inch or 20-inch wheels.
This will definitely be frustrating for some people in the first group of deliveries of Model Y’s. If you’re like me and got a Model Y without a tow hitch. I guarantee many people who received their cars wish they had known this option was coming…just a couple weeks after their car was delivered, and they could have had Model Y towing.
Plus, now that they’ve added the option, it’s definitely likely that early pre-orders who haven’t taken delivery yet will want to add this option, and more than likely, you’ll actually end up having to pay the new price for the car.
See, when Tesla announced the prices for the Model Y, the AWD was at $51,000, and now that price is $52,990. From what we’ve seen, even though you locked in your price, editing your order could still result in the new price because essentially it starts a new order.
So, if you pre-ordered on the announcement date, and now want to add the tow hitch option, it seems like you’ll have to pay the $1000 for the tow hitch, as well as the $1990 price increase of the car in general.
Now regarding deliveries in general, and production of the tow hitch, it’s important to note that Tesla’s factory is closed, so any Model Y’s that are still getting delivered were already produced before the shutdown, and a couple weeks before this option was even live on the website, so none that are still getting delivered will have this Tow Hitch.
Now my biggest question is, can the tow hitch be added retroactively? It seems that no towing equipment is present in Model Y’s that were delivered, and installing it would be quite a process, so I wonder if Tesla will allow this to be added with a service appointment? Or if early Model Y adapters are stuck with no tow hitch.
As I mentioned, Tesla’s factory is closed, for obvious reasons, and they are now planning to open again on May 4th. Tesla is planning on temporary pay cuts with vice presidents and above receiving 30% pay cuts, directors and up taking 20% cuts, and all other US employees taking a 10% pay cut at least through the second quarter.
Regarding Tesla Q1 deliveries, we know that Tesla produced around 102,672 cars and deliveries 88,400 in Q1 which means that Tesla still has some stock of cars in inventory, and in my personal opinion, I still think they have quite a few Model Y’s ready to delivery if your location and configuration happen to line up with what’s in their secretive inventory.
Last up today, we got a little insight into Model Y European delivery when Elon responded to a tweet.
Someone tweeted at Elon asking “When do you delivery model y in Switzerland?”
To which Elon said
“In about a year. Would come from Giga Berlin”. So it looks like in Switzerland, and most likely all European countries, the Model Y will be arriving once the new factory is built in Berlin, and they likely won’t be shipping Model Y’s overseas from Fremont.
Now keep in mind that “about a year” is Elon time, and we have to consider that the entire world economy is slowing currently, and the Model Y’s production is contingent on an entire factory being built. They pulled it off in a year with Gigafactory Shanghai, but we’ll see if they can do it again, especially right now.
Currently, my Red Tesla Model Y AWD is in the service center for some small fixes from production, and while it’s fun to have a loaner Model S, I definitely miss my Model Y. I’ll give you the whole story of why it’s already in service so soon, so make sure you’re subscribed to this channel to stay up to date on all the videos I’ll be bringing out and to hear that whole story.

when you order it from Tesla you get the tow mode software package, which I think would be worth the difference in the long run for safety and performance reasons.

I am that guy who ordered a RWD and now wants a tow hitch (bike rack). I asked Tesla about having to upgrade my whole vehicle to AWD and pay current price when RWD isn't even in production yet. Response: "We always hold pricing for orders, but if any changes are made, it is considered a new order. We are consistent with this across the board for every customer. As for installing afterward, we are told you will be able to install the hitch (for AWD versions, not sure yet about RWD) post-delivery, so many clients are foregoing the more expensive option and will wait to post-delivery."

Hey rYan, it seems, you can retrofit tow hitch, see this: uzpost.info/vision/video/jL2xlZNrdZ1vp5c.html I would go back to tesla and ask about retrofitting. Let me know, if you succeed. Take Care

Everyone being the first to buy a new model from Tesla should fully know by now that they will have the most problems and the least options. Tow hitch is just part of the price you pay when you don't wait for at least a year.

torkliftcentral.com/trailer-hitches/rear-mounted-receiver-hitches/ecohitch/tesla/tesla-model-y-ecohitch-invisi Torklift near Seattle has an aftermarket hitch for the MY for $275 if you only need it for bike racks, etc. If you want wiring for trailer lights, that's another $184. I can speak to their superb quality, having a hitch without wiring on my Nissan Leaf, and both front and rear hitches (rear with wiring) on my Mercedes Sprinter van.

Hi Ryan! Did you have gap issue with your model Y? Wondering if Tesla will make adjustments at the factory to resolve gap issues when factory opens. All model Y I’ve seen on youtube so far all have gap issues. Hopefully Tesla will fix the issue on the next batch. Still waiting for VIN to match my car.

I called to add towing to my Y order, and was told it would only cost $1000. A few days later, they called back and said it would cost more to change the order now and get towing (about $980 in addition to the $1000), BUT I could add it after delivery for the standard $1000 and not pay the extra now.

It really isn't an if, it's a when and I'm hopeful for an aftermarket option in the future. What I've come to learn is, all this guess work and unclarity is just the Tesla way. I took delivery of an all-option, Performance Model Y in March and never experienced a bigger car-buying cluster in my life. I felt like I was buying a MacBook Pro. The tow hitch is just another one of those Tesla-isms. I think I love the car, however, it was immediately taken into service for extremely bad fit and finish issues so I'm not sure. Maybe it's that I'm a new comer and an outsider but I'm shocked what passed QC and left the factory floor.

I live in VA. I tried to upgrade my rear wheel drive model Y with tow hitch. The person who helped me told me that he would upgrade mine with only additional $1,000. But he called me again today saying that I would have to pay the increased price for model Y. But he told me that I can request Telsa to install the tow hitch after the delivery. But he didn't know how much it would cost for after delivery installation. Personally, this was NOT a good EXPERIENCE.

Chatted with Tesla online chat today. Agent confirmed that hitch can be retrofit after delivery. I asked if it is installed the same way and agent said yes. So good news for those that took delivery already and want the hitch. I also asked if I can add to existing order but original purchase price was a no go.

I contacted Tesla because I haven’t taken delivery of my Model Y yet and I wanted to add the tow option. I got a reply from a Delivery Support Specialist, Inside Delivery saying, “One item of note is that, while we cannot update the order and retain your original pricing, the hitch will be available for post-delivery purchase and installation; pricing and timing are yet to be revealed, but we should have that information in the near future.”

So I’ve read a few of the comments. I get that people are saying you should just wait until they get it right, but the nature of ev adoption is that we need early adopters. My 2014Leaf was better because some people bought the 2011 version and the 2020 Bolt is better because I bought the early one. Early adopters are the engine of this revolution. That being said, I was ready to cancel my order if it didn’t have a tow when mine came up

Ryan ... my neighbours friend works for Tesla here in Canada. She confirmed from Telsa North America that if pre-orders wish to keep the current price of their vehicle they will be able to retro-fit the vehicle with the Tow Hitch after delivery. It's very early days, but worth waiting because $6,000 difference in price just to add the $1,300 hitch is a bit ludicrous. This may still be preferable because in BC, Canada you have to pay a luxury tax of 15% on the price of the car. Ordering the hitch after will save you that 15%. Even then I would imagine it would be a very long wait because the hitch accessory will likely be out of stock for a while with all the new orders eating up the supply of the hitch itself. The sales rep also confirmed that pre-orders couldn't not be modified to benefit from the earlier price and the tow hitch.

@Matt McGinnis It's a Class II hitch, from the Tesla site. Looking up what that means: "Class 2 hitches have a 1-1/4" receiver and generally only go up to 3,500 lbs. GTW. On the other hand, class 3 hitches have a 2" receiver and can range up to 8,000 lbs. gross trailer weight."

I just got off the phone with a sales/delivery rep, to see if I could add this to my order without changing the pricing I have made my reservation at (doing it last year is $2000 cheaper than what it is at now.) He said if we add it, it will go to current pricing. But he said it can be added later, for the same cost. He read me the wording Tesla says, which read that it will be available later as a retrofit. So no worries if you already have one now or a reservation without one.

In a video by i1 Tesla you can see that mounting bolts are in place on the Model Y to receive a tow hitch bracket. The bracket will straddle the trunk just like the Model X and Model 3. He does not point this feature out but he does show there is no way to mount a trailer hitch in the center of the Model Y. It needs the bracket to bridge over the center.

Hi, Ryan et al Great video! I saw the trailer hitch option was available and went to update my order. The new price included not only the trailer hitch and the car price increases, but also the full self-driving increases. My price would increase by about $8,000 CDN! How can I get around all this? Nobody at Tesla ever seems to answer the phone. I'm probably waiting for Mountain Pass to sell and after-market arrangement. What I would really like to see is a video of someone putting an adult-sized mountain bike in the back of the Model Y. This is the main thing I need to know i can do before I can accept my order. Could you do that for us? Thanks for this stream of information about the Y. I await your future videos with bated breath. Andrew in Prince George, BC

Hey Ryan, Great video! If the tow hitch it had come with my Model Y, I could see myself getting getting a bike rack. I would not have paid extra for it and don't plan on installing one later. What is the version of your software on your Model Y? Can you create a video showing the software upgrade process? I received my car on March 25th and it came with 2020.5.10.3. A blue Model Y dual motor performance with VIN in the 300s. I had connected my car to home wifi on April 1st and did not get my first update until April 7th. I was surprised to see that the new version, 2020.5.10.7, is a very small increment above the version originally shipped with the car which is 2020.5.10.3. Should Model Y owners have a newer version of the software by now?

One topic I’ve never seen anyone cover is a Tesla Brake Controller integrated into the firmware. There are many trailers with electric brakes instead of hydraulic surge brakes. Tesla can very easily make software that does NOT activate trailer brakes any time regen can safely send that energy back into the battery. It would also provide a way for the driver to manually apply trailer brakes as required by laws in certain areas. This is one reason I’d wait to get the one from Tesla. And it’s quite possible that it can be a dealer (or service center) installed item.

As others have said, install any aftermarket tow hitch you like (for a quarter of the price). A simple and easy addition to any vehicle. No reason to get a Tesla branded hitch. And I would get a class III hitch, since it has a larger receiver (two inch) opening that is more universal and stronger.

Right now adding towing would add almost $4000 (instead of $1000) to my order. I went through the chat asking if they could add it, but the chat said that it would update the prices to current prices... $4000 is too much. In the chat they said to wait and that it may be (but they don't know yet) offered as an after delivery purchase.

It'll be pretty easy to install. Remove the bumper, bolt on. Pretty much it. The after market ones will be similarly priced to the model 3's, a couple of hundreds USD. The main downside is that you won't have the trailer mode software.

It would seem likely that the tow option would have to include modifications to the wiring harness to power lights on a trailer to be a legitimate factory option. You could use a physical aftermarket hitch to carry a bike rack, which would need no power for turn signals and brake/running lights.

@Steve Martin Your statement is blank. Be little more specific if you are trying to help. Clearly, none of these happened to you. Contact who? How? I've must contacted the wrong people because nothing was fixed. Does sending buyers back end of the line(updated order date after editing) can be fixed with with patience? Just wait longer? Is that it? People getting cars who ordered a week ago. Maybe you are one of them. How's that feel for the ones who ordered 1 year ago? I tell you! Feels undervalued! Then you ad a hitch and they update the base price to today's date? Fair? So currently my preorder is useless. I purely stated facts what happened to me and some others.

I am seeing comments of people mentioning adding Tow Hitch as after market option. I don't believe aftermarket will be that easy because 1.) the Tesla software cannot account for the changed vehicle dynamics of an after market Tow hitch. 2.) the Tow hitch needs to be installed directly on the chassis which will be more intrusive upgrade and probably cost more than 1000$ for parts and labor after market. For those who need the Tow hitch and yet to take delivery, It will make sense to edit your order anyway and risk getting to the back of line. Tesla doesn't seem to honor the line position anyway.

white model Y's haven't been produced yet it seems. Today I got a call from Tesla saying that they could me me with a VIN but with black seats rather than white. I said no, I wanted white. He said it may take till July or August then, I said that is fine. That way I'll also get the more quiet heater hopefully.

I just spoke with Tesla today.. Changing your order does not affect your delivery place in line .. what does is when you complete your profile. I asked about adding the Tow and they are not sure when that feature will be deliverable meaning it maybe 2021 to get a Y with a tow. They did confirm that I will increase my cost by $2k for the change in the self-driving price so it is very annoying that people like myself who ordered my Y on 3/18/2029 with a $2.5k deposit are being penalized for changing my order now that the specs are final.

FYI, I requested they add the Tow Hitch to my 10/31/2019 pre-order. They got back to me and said that request would require a complete re-order. I pre-orderred Oct. 31, so the extra cost to me to re-order just to get a tow hitch would be around $3,000 with the tow hitch cost, raise in vehicle cost since my pre-order, and raise in full self driving cost since my pre-order. I am holding off on adjusting my order at this time. I have asked to find out if the car without the tow hitch option can add the tow hitch after delivery. They do not seem to know if that will be an option at this time. This policy by Tesla on forcing a complete re-order to add a tow hitch for pre-orders that have not been fulfilled yet to pre-order people has left a bit of a negative vibe to me.

I'd give it a reasonable amount of time--a week or two--before getting truly agitated. Tesla improves things on the fly, which is great because there can be more rapid improvement; but a side-effect of that process can be that the change hits the streets before the process is FULLY worked out and trained to the customer interface people.

FYI, I also just did a Tesla chat on order page and they say there may be an after delivery option and/or an option to add it to pre-order with pre-order price but they do not have anything available currently in their system yet for either option. They said to check back in the future.

Waited 4 days, no reply from my assigned Tesla representative, so log into my Tesla account and use the contract at the bottom of page, after a couple of hours, got text message and Tesla added the Tow Hitch added right away!

Another reason why you never buy a vehicle when it first comes out. I’m waiting until 2022 for them to work out issues/add options.

Resetting earlier preorder pricing towards an optional hitch - sucks. Dealing with Tesla on line pricing is just as bad or worse than dealing with a slippery salesman of a car dealership.

You can buy a retrofit Model X tow package in the Tesla online store. I hope the same will be true for the Y. shop.tesla.com/product/model-x-tow-package

Good to note. The M-X tow pkg doesn't show up as an add-on option when placing an order in the "configurator." Is it a dealer-added post-deliver upgrade only?

FYI...I had ordered the Model Y in September 2019 (all wheel, black, 19" sport wheels, full self driving) With my configuration, it was $82.8K (CAN $)...in Feb2020, I dropped the sport wheels...(which actually showed as 20" ) and went to the 19" Gemini...instead of dropping $2.6K, it dropped $1.3K...new total $81.5K...then 3Apr I changed color from Black to Red...total went up by $1.3K...so this was good...no penalty...now back @ $82.8K...then today (10Apr) I saw the tow hitch was available...which is something I wanted...thinking I would not be penalized (since I wasn't penalized when I upgraded the color, I upgraded my order by adding the tow hitch...I was expecting the total to be $84.1K...however, the new total was $87.7...ugh...I didn't know that you could reach out to Tesla and perhpas 'negotiate' upgrades...should have done that...I think I will try...thanks

This is just one of the many reasons why it's better to wait until the first wave gets produced. I am planning on waiting at least 10,000 VINs to be produced. preferably more like 40,000 to get the finalized version, which can be drastic. talking with a mobile tech agent yesterday, he said he can clearly see the difference in build quality per build increments.

From Munroe's video, it looks like it comes ready to add the hitch.

Is there a risk of having Tesla invalidate the warranty or disabling the use of superchargers after having tow hitches installed by third-party suppliers/installers?
Steve Martin
Steve Martin 6 oy oldin
In the USA, aftermarket vehicle modifications are legally protected from dealer gamesmanship. Unless the dealer can reasonably prove the warranty claim problem was CAUSED BY the modification, they must stand by their warranty.

Ryan, you don't know how difficult it will be to add a hitch. No use worrying about it until you have the facts.

I opened up the rear lower access panel on the bumper cover of my Model Y to inspect how the actual bumper beam behind the cover was attached. This beam is mounted to & runs between each of the frame rails. I was surprised to see that the beam bolts extended further rearward beyond their nuts than needed. I suspect these extended bolts will be where a retrofitted tow hitch can be mounted to any MY already built. Tesla thinks ahead about such engineering stuff...just not very good with delivery logictics ;-)

I’m thinking you’ll be able to get it done after the fact but it will be for $2,000. I think they raised the base price up by $1k so they could make the Tow Hitch option a $1k option making it more enticing for people to just go with it even if they rarely will be using it but find it could be convenient some time in the future.
mfkman
mfkman 6 oy oldin
Adding it now would be almost $4k for me, so $2k is definitely better :) But I would only go Tesla rather than aftermarket if the Tesla towing came with additional software and if the aftermarket do not have it.

At 80% charge and 70% efficiency with only the driver, your lucky to get 230 miles. This is why I cancelled my Tesla Y order. I'll wait for the Rav4 Prime which will easily get 450 miles plus.

Not an issue to charge to full 100% when you're doing a longer trip. 80% charge is recommended for *all* EVs for best long term battery life.

Hey Ryan, I want to thank you for your in-depth coverage of the Model Y. Your ferocity it admirable. Personally, I was 'inches away' from pulling the trigger on my first Model 3 at you and 7+ billion people know what happened. Now that I have time to pause, I'm looking at your Model Y stuff thoroughly to comparing comparing which fits my needs best. (In short, it's what I believe to be better looks on the Model 3 vs. the greater capacity on Y...but ya' gotta love the heat pump.) Thank you again and keep up the good work!
Michael Holliday

I am willing to say that they will probably add the heat pump to the Model 3 soon. It does not make sense (cost wise) to make two difference HVAC units for 2 cars based off of the ssme same platform. I am also willing to bet that the cast rear end assembly will be in the Model 3 shortly for the ssme reason...

Hi Ryan, How do you go about getting the corrections done by Tesla? Do you just make a list of things you need fixed, call the service center and make an appointment? Do you have a few days to check out your car or do you have to do the call within a 24 hour time limit? Thanks for the video!

@Klay Kunkel interesting. I ordered about a month ago and already had my trade in and financing approved. Maybe that's why I was able to add the hitch to my order? I'm just waiting on the VIN too. I agree, I'd rather have the convenience of receiving it with the hitch than have to worry about an aftermarket option later... good luck!
Klay Kunkel
Klay Kunkel 6 oy oldin
@Joe S. I contacted my sales person and did the chat as well. The message was they did not have a way to add it at this time since it was too new and to contact them next week. BTW, I do not have a VIN yet. I have time since they are still closed so I'll keep trying. I get its too expensive and aftermarket will put something out but I'll pay the extra for the convenience of it being installed on delivery ... if I can get them to make the change :)
