The roll out of the Model Y is happening in a much different way than every other model Tesla has delivered. Historically (from what I have read so correct me if I'm wrong), the order of delivery started with Tesla employees, those who already own a Tesla and then by region.

With the Y, I'm assuming the early pictures were employees who purchased. Shipments of vehicles are going out all over the country, suggesting the region aspect my very well be out the window. And while some of those vehicles may be going to existing Tesla owners, surely not all of them are. (It doesn't make sense to send a car carrier only half full!) It has been speculated that this is to try and ramp up the hype across the country, where people will suddenly be seeing many Model Y's on the road all at once, increasing the 'Wow' factor.

I have no knowledge as to if the CT is following the same delivery method, but I would assume that Tesla is closely watching how the Model Y is received and will tweak this method for the CT as it will create even more of a WOW factor. (Imagine seeing a car carrier going down the road with 5 or 6 CTs on it!! Its going to be badass!!)

Hopefully this helps clear up some of the comments going on about regional deliveries and also gives people hope they may get there vehicle just a litter sooner than they originally thought...whenever that may be!

Sorry folks but selfish me I’d be fine with Tesla sending all CTs to the Bay Area until I get mine, though I am pretty certain the OP is correct...

Musk and Tesla have shown themselves to be the ultimate marketers and hype builders (tho they've backed it all up), without spending a dime. They let social media and Tesla blogs and forums take care of their viral marketing. So yea I wouldn't be one bit surprised if @VolklKatana is right and the transports carrying Model Y are for "sightings" and to build awareness and hype. It's the perfect viral material. And why not deliver/transport some Model Y while they're at it. :D

I am in the South. I would bet there were not too many preorders in my area. Those i have mentioned it to seem to not have really looked at the truck. They know the windows broke and that is really it. I am not sure when i will get mine i am in the first 150,000 but it will be unique in my area for a while. There are a lot of Tesla's though so i might be wrong.
