I didn't realize the production difference between S/X and 3/Y.

Is there a 3 / Y breakdown somewhere.
I want to see High "Y" numbers to justify the delay, I think I am experiencing! in getting mine!!!

Those are some impressive numbers considering a global shortage of supplies plus what hopefully is the tail end of the pandemic. Many were suggesting that Tesla wouldn‘t be able to reach 200K cars for Q2.

I am also experiencing what appears to be a lengthy delay. Ordered my Y on May on May 9th (my profile is compete). It keeps updating back and forth by +- a week which I am told is normal as they organize production runs. I am wondering if it has to do with the way its optioned. Black color plus 7 seater 3rd row.

I didn't think they produced any S/X during Q1? If we don't know when those models went back into production then we don't know if this is a full 91 days of production, or just some fraction of the quarter. Q3 will be a more interesting comparison of SX to 3Y.
