Matthias Vlogt received his Model 3 from the Touchless Delivery from Tesla, but it is not so touchless as they say.
When the vehicle arrives, the first thing you’ll have to do is to get the car key card from the locker, using a code received from the Tesla App, find the car on a delivery parking lot and check if everything looks ok, unlock the vehicle and you are ready to go. If there is still paperwork to sign, it will be inside the car, and then the costumer signs it and sends it back.
Tesla explained that “In many locations, we are in the process of implementing “touchless deliveries” so customers can continue to take delivery of their vehicle in a seamless and safe way. Due to the unique over-the-air connectivity of our vehicles, customers are able to unlock their new cars at a delivery parking lot via the Tesla App, sign any remaining relevant paperwork that has been placed in their car, and return that paperwork to an on-site drop-off location prior to leaving. This method provides additional convenience and comfort.”
It is still not known how long the touchless deliveries will occur due to coronavirus.
