    Company Lease Insurance Unavailable?

    I came up against this issue trying to insure a Model X and S on fleet insurance - I thought it would be cheaper but the few companies I spoke to basically said that they don't cover Teslas due to difficulty arranging repairs, and they recommended getting individual policies with Direct Line...

    Insurance New Vehicle [2020 Megathread]

    I tried for fleet insurance (business leasing an S and an X) but was told that it would be cheaper to get individual policies with Direct Line. I had used the comparison sites and the quotes were coming up very expensive, and Direct Line has - for us - been about a quarter of the price. For...

    2020 Shipping Movements

    My Model S is to be delivered this Monday. Still no date on the Model X at the moment. Cannot arrange insurance as I don't have a registration number, which seems rather silly!

    Insurance Question - Fleet or Personal?

    Hello all, We take delivery of our Model S on Monday and I have an insurance question. I have over 20 years protected NCB, no convictions etc. My wife has yet to pass her test! We will have a Model S and a Model X. The Model S is going to be her car but in the meantime I am going to drive it...

    Model S - Wedge for Child Car Seats

    Exciting news, my Model S is going to be delivered in a couple of weeks. The main car we will be using with the children is the Model X but as that's not arriving for a bit longer, I need to get our 3 car seats into the S. So there are a couple of options. Buy new car seats (kids are 3, 5 and...

    Anybody waiting for a Model X delivery (UK)

    Waiting on an X and an S, only ordered about a month ago. S I think we'll have in the next few weeks as one popped up in inventory in transit so the lease company have swapped it over to that one. X I don't know. Long range, black, standard wheels, 7 seats, white leather. Be great if it was...

    What can I expect on a test drive?

    I was given a Model X for 24 hours, didn't request it but that's how they were doing it a few weeks ago. No free parking (though there is pay parking nearby), I got an Uber to there from my house.

    Model X delivery time UK

    I noticed a load of Model S pop up in inventory yesterday. I saw one matching my spec so jumped on it and gave the RN to my lease company to do a swap over. The site was showing the car was in London though, is this not correct? Where do we get delivery dates from? I couldn't see a Model X...

    Charging Advice - Installation at 3 Phase Supply Premises

    We've now got an S and an X on order (exciting!). Want to get my charging in place. Our warehouse has 3 phase supply so wondering what my best options for that are? Want to charge as quickly as possible. We're in Middlesex if that matters. Probably get 2 of them as it can be put through the...

    What can I expect on a test drive?

    I did one just after Covid. Collected Model X at midday, dropped it back the following morning at 10am. Chiswick.

    2020 Shipping Movements

    Take this as you will, but my lease company have said they expect the next ship to be arriving in late August and my Model S and Model X to be delivered around the beginning of September. I ordered about 10 days ago.

    Taptes deliveries

    Now this I can help with... There are massive supply chain issues affecting China following on from Covid-19. Obviously a lot of factories were forced to shut, but more importantly a lot of container ships were cancelled. There were over 200 ships cancelled, and each one would have had 20,000...

    2020 Shipping Movements

    When do you think I can expect the X and S? X is long range, standard wheels, 7 seats, black, with white leather. S is long range, standard wheels, cream leather. I will be checking inventory regularly to see if anything pops up that I can swap over to

    Tesla cuts car prices by up to $5,000 in USA and China

    Prices on the Model X seem to have dropped (and they have removed free Supercharging). Was pricing one up last week (long range, black, 7 Seats, white leather) and it was £94k odd. Now pricing up at £89k.

    Deals to be done with Tesla on inventory Model X?

    Thanks both - presumably I then need to arrange the finance myself etc (I'm going to be leasing as we have our own business). Am I right in thinking that Q2 is to end of June as they are a US company that goes Jan - Dec for reporting purposes?

    Model X Perf or....

    Are you me? We have our own business, so getting electric cars is a no brainer. I originally wanted the S, however due to 3 kids the X makes more sense (I'm waiting for a test drive to check it fits on my drive before ordering!). My wife wants the EQC. The way I look at it we're reducing our...

    Deals to be done with Tesla on inventory Model X?

    Thanks for the suggestions - but the price is still higher for the inventory models than for a new order? That’s what is confusing me. I am probably missing something...

    Deals to be done with Tesla on inventory Model X?

    Wondering what the consensus is on whether there will be any flexibility on pricing for inventory stock Tesla are showing? I want a Model X, black, standard wheels, 7 seat with white interior. I don't really need or want the full self driving capability however they are showing one available in...

    Model x orders

    Height is no issue for me. Lateral space most certainly is. If I have 50cm I'll be lucky. It's very tight. I'm actually more concerned about the front doors than the rear ones! I can always park on the street (opposite, as there is no parking on the side I live) as I'll install a charger at our...

    Model x orders

    I know that - but until I can confirm it for my drive I can't place the order! I think it will be fine but it's just bad timing meaning it's held me back for a few weeks...

    Model x orders

    I'm desperate to order one but need a test drive first to check the doors will open on my drive. So I've been stymied for weeks!

    Family man finding the S a little too tight. Is the X significantly better with kids?

    What did you use for this? If I go for the S I had considered getting some sort of custom made polythene to level up the back seats as the hip supports on either side really restrict the usable space for car seats...

    3 Children in the rear of a Model S?

    The Multimac is interesting, I was already aware of it and obviously the Model 3 is significantly cheaper. Does it make any difference to insurance as I'm sure they would class it as an alteration? Still waiting for my test drive, but I'm leaning towards the X if I can get it on my drive and...

    3 Children in the rear of a Model S?

    Thanks all - waiting for a test drive on the X which obviously is a bit difficult to arrange at the moment... I will report back. I've contacted a few lease companies already, I'm guessing they will all be much of a muchness in terms of pricing?

    Family man finding the S a little too tight. Is the X significantly better with kids?

    Question for you guys - was considering an S but with 3 kids (age 3, 5 and 7) the X makes more sense. Planning on getting the 7 seater as I want to put the 3 kids in the middle row next to each other and have good space in the rear - and seats if needed. Do the seats in the middle row move...

    3 Children in the rear of a Model S?

    Yep - will arrange the test drive and see if it fits in. Annoyingly where I am in London there are a lot of width restrictors so there would be some roads I can't go down in an X but that's a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things...

    3 Children in the rear of a Model S?

    Hello all - long time lurker, first time poster and hoping I can get some good advice from those much more experienced than me... We're going to lease a Tesla through our business after a long campaign which my wife has eventually acquiesced to. I'm deciding between the Model S and the Model X...
