Tesla pushes the delivery timeline for new standard 3-order models as demand extends

Tesla has updated the delivery timeline for new standard 3 order orders – printing on them after 4 weeks, as demand from the first week of orders is expected to keep busy for a while. When Tesla finally launched the base model 3 for $ 35,000 just over a week ago, the automaker said it started delivering within the next 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the US configuration. Yesterday, Tesla updated the Standard Range Model 3 delivery timeline to "6 to 8 weeks". As for the Standard Range Plus version of model 3, it also saw its delivery timeline for new orders pushed &#821 1; but only by 2 weeks. When asked about the change, a Tesla spokesman was told to Electrek that it was adjusted due to the order volume: "We temporarily adjust delivery calculations based on the order volume." That would mean that Tesla received about a month worth of standard model 3 orders within the first week. We cannot say exactly how many vehicles it represents, but Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla would not reach the volume of the standard 3-battery pack for standard product until "mid-year". Earlier this week we mentioned that Tesla produced the first series of standard models 3 and it resulted in 550 vehicles in about 2 days.

Tesla has updated the delivery timeline for new standard 3 order orders – printing on them after 4 weeks, as demand from the first week of orders is expected to keep busy for a while.

When Tesla finally launched the base model 3 for $ 35,000 just over a week ago, the automaker said it started delivering within the next 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the US configuration.

Yesterday, Tesla updated the Standard Range Model 3 delivery timeline to “6 to 8 weeks”.

As for the Standard Range Plus version of model 3, it also saw its delivery timeline for new orders pushed &#821

When asked about the change, a Tesla spokesman was told to Electrek that it was adjusted due to the order volume:

“We temporarily adjust delivery calculations based on the order volume.”

That would mean that Tesla received about a month worth of standard model 3 orders within the first week.

We cannot say exactly how many vehicles it represents, but Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla would not reach the volume of the standard 3-battery pack for standard product until “mid-year”.

Electrek’s Take

It is difficult to estimate how many orders Tesla received for the base model 3 without more data points, but based on the first production days and the delivery timeline is driven by a month, I think it is safe to say that it is between 5,000 and 10,000 units.

Keep in mind that this only applies to the United States and over a week. [19659003] For the first week it’s not bad for Tesla. For any other automaker that sells an electric vehicle, it would be an incredible achievement, but it is not entirely out of the ordinary for Tesla.

I think that orders for the base model 3 will come steady at a higher price when the vehicle gets in the hands of the customers, words in the mouth come into play, and people start to see what you get for the price.

Assuming it looks good in person, which I think it will (thought I would like to see it personally – turn me up [email protected]), I can see helping to drive global demand for Model 3 over 500,000 units per year, originally predicted by Elon.
