If we take a look at the Tesla configurator, we will see that, for example, for the Model S and X that receive an order today, their estimated delivery time isn’t until March 2021. Something that extends to the Model X, where the wait is between 6 and 8 weeks.
In the case of the Model 3, there isn’t very good news either, since according to the Tesla configurator, deliveries of new orders for the Standard Range Plus version also extend until February 2021, while the Long Range Dual Motor and Performance remain in December.
This means in practice that if the units purchased in mid-October indicated a delivery period of one month and those in charge at the end of October mark delivery in March 2021. This means that it is possible that we will not see deliveries of the Tesla Model S, X and the Standard version of Model 3 for a whole quarter (December, January, and February).
But among the reasons could be the pandemic’s impact, which would have slowed down work at the Fremont factory, where the Model S, X, and Model 3 are produced. It could also be that the demand for these models is very low, which has caused Tesla to choose to prioritize the production of the most demanded versions.
In the absence of knowing the reasons for this delay in deliveries, what is clear is that if you are thinking of getting a brand-new Tesla, you should know that the waiting times are much longer than usual, and also that the North American manufacturer has a large stock for those who find what they are looking for within this offer.
