Tesla are known for making continuous improvements to their vehicles. The latest example of this is a modification of the Model Y made at Giga Shanghai.
According to a recent update to the instruction manual, the rear compartment of the boot in the Model Y now includes four hooks.
The manual says that the hooks, two of which are located in front and two towards the back, are designed to be used with lashing devices to secure loose objects in the cargo space.
If you are not familiar with a lashing device, it can be any device in the trunk to hold items in place. This is most often a mesh net, as illustrated in the picture in the user manual.
The Tesla Shop does not yet have a shipping network like this available for the Model Y. One should be added soon as they offer one for the Model X, which sells for $ 70 CAD or $ 50 USD.
Model Y Package Shelf
Along with the new cargo hooks, the instruction manual for made in China cars now also contains a reference to the cargo cover, or as Tesla calls it a package shelf.
Tesla describes it in the manual as follows:
ModelY is equipped with a luggage rack that covers the rear luggage compartment load. This is useful when you want to hide valuables, keep the sun away from groceries or minimize noise from rattling items. Simply push the shelf back to fold it in and pull the shelf forward to fold it out for use.
To remove, fold the back panel and lift the package shelf upward by hand under the bottom of the shelf to release the tabs and magnets in the front corners. Then slide out the package shelf.
Here is a video of the package shelf in action.

This new accessory was first seen in China last year and at the time is said to be offered as a free retrofit to existing owners, but we have not yet heard any confirmation of that.
The North American version of the user manuals mentions neither the cargo hooks nor the package shelf, but as with everything else that Tesla introduces first in China, you should expect these to come soon to Fremont (and Giga Texas?).
