    1 click away from ordering model Y

    Drops, I took delivery on my Model Y Long Range a couple of months ago, moving on from a Mercedes C-Class. I liked, but never loved, the C-Class, and got tired of sitting so low to the ground. Also, the car was getting a little tough for my wife to get in and out of. And opening the door was...

    Facial recognition option to e-sign documents

    They lined you up against a wall (actually, in front of a wall) and take a front and two angled photos, which are electronically compared with your driver's license photos you submitted when ordering. That's it. Takes two minutes. The whole delivery process was unbelievably quick and...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I haven't used it a lot, but I did get some on a two-lane road that was well marked with only a few turn-ins. I was surprised and tapped the brake to get out of AP. It is definitely something to keep an eye on. It worked well on freeways (which is its best use anyway), but I do not have full...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    A nearly two-month EDD us ridiculous, so ridiculous that you shouldn't put too much stock in it. This may just be the typical purgatory people are dumped into before Tesla's Commodore 64 reshuffles the order of deliveries. Keep the faith.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Got my VIN on my 6-month anniversary. (Semi-anniversary?) You guys are close. IMO, September orders are not linear; the rate of orders increased in September, so it might take a few more days.

    No Complaints

    I picked up my new MYLR last week at Corte Madera and I was so conditioned to expect problems that I was frustrated I couldn't find any. After accepting the car and completing all the "paperwork" and making the payment via the app I had my first words with a human since ordering the car on my...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I didn't have to acknowledge or push a button on a waiver of the tesla vision, but IIRC there was a note on the appointment scheduling page noting the change. A Tesla SA passing on incorrect information is not an uncommon occurrence. Some might say a regular occurrence. If you have a VIN and a...

    Wait. You have a VIN, right? If you have a VIN your car is built. Did you get a text message telling you to check your account? Were delivery appointments offered for you to choose?

    That’s great news! Glad you finally got some good news! You were jerked around for sure, but you’re gonna love the car. I wonder what caused Tesla to see the light? 😎

    Effective October 15 it went to one month. You won't see it in your account until you accept delivery. Not to worry.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I ordered a couple of weeks before Tesla reduced the premium connectivity to one month. My account shows an expiration date exactly one year from the day of delivery. Can't say I'm overwhelmed by the Premium Connectivity. The streaming options are all low quality and the only way to get music...

    I’ve seen enough. I hereby challenge Elon Musk to single combat. Stakes are the remaining August/September orders. (As soon as he’s finished with that other guy.)

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Sorry to hear that. I absolutely understand your frustration. While you shop for other cars you should leave your order in place--it doesn't cost anything to keep it alive and you might get surprised. At least you will have more choices by not burning your bridges. Once you make it through all...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Looks like Tesla has too many people in the EOQ pot ending on 3/31, so they are looking to verify that the customer will take the vehicle before scheduling the truck ride to delivery centers. A rejected car at, or on the way to, a delivery center is a missed delivery for Q1. If you want the...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Don't feel that way. It is OK to gather data about your next car and a major expenditure. I did it, and I'm still hanging around to see how it is going for other Septemberists. You're on the West Coast and you still have a good shot with your current EDD.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    It's worth the wait. I was skeptical of all the gushing, glowing reports, but it is true. I've owned Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Infiniti, and Audi, and none of them gave me a thrill like my new Model Y. It is remarkable. When I picked up my car on Tuesday, I reflected on my journey. I bought a...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Based on my own recent experience, a sudden shift and narrowing is a good thing, especially if you live on the West Coast. Your order date was one week after mine, and tomorrow is the one week anniversary of the VIN coming through. Orders were coming in at an accelerating rate then, but I think...

    Wow. I've never seen an EDD shorter than the three-day pickup window.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Your trade-in offer expires in 30 days, so if you gave them the infor on or around 1/28 it has expired and you'll need to send them a new mileage photo and get the current offer for your car. I got a trade in text message in early December and expected a late December delivery, and nothing...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I was reading this forum and thinking about all the comments about all the VINs and EDD changes over the previous 24 hours, so I checked and the VIN was on my account. It was day one of an EDD that had already shifted twice in the last week, maybe four times in the last month. A couple of hours...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Something is definitely wrong with your order. This is ridiculous. You should not feel shy about calling. Also, if you are on Twitter, fire a few salvos at Tesla and Elon. Make some noise. It may or may not help, but this just isn't right. Maybe keep trying the call center, and ask to escalate...

    What name did you give your new Model Y?

    I don't know about you personally, but your garage definitely deserves that new Tesla.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Greetings Septemberists, While getting ready for my delivery on Tuesday, I learned a few things I thought I would share with the class. 1. Changes to sales documents. I needed to change the spelling on my purchase agreement, title request, etc. I replied to the text message telling me about...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I though Sonoma/Rocklin would be later in the month, as we are really low hanging fruit for the end of quarter push, which had me worried about spilling over into next quarter. I looked really good for December and got pushed late in the month to to January, so I'm a surprised to be getting a...

    Yeah, that is a concern. Will be going by the showroom later today to check and I'll update. Unless I find a similar VIN number on here confirming the new hardware..

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Holy *sugar* read these last posts and thought I would check and I got a VIN! First day in my latest (of many) EDDs! Ordered six months ago today--September 5th! F391XXX. Things moved quickly the last few days.

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    That seems unlikely. VINs and shipping all come from the factory, with delivery times, transportation availability, and end of quarter considerations as major parameters, but with Tesla who the hell knows? But it seems unlikely based on everything we've heard about SAs.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    My EDD moved forward to 3/5 - 3/31 from 3/9 - 3/15. No VIN yet. But the change is just in time for my semi-anniversary tomorrow. So that's a two-week-plus improvement in the back end of my EDD range. May give a ray of hope to the many others with current EDDs ending on 3/31. Or not. Or it may...

    I'm here, and busy planning my big six-month semi-anniversary party for this weekend. Order date: September 5. Everyone is invited. Night-fury gets two pieces of cake because he's been screwed the hardest had to wait the longest.

    Guess I’m a glutton for punishment. The September order thread just isn’t frustrating enough. It’ll be the six months anniversary of my order this Saturday. I’m gonna throw a party and invite some September orders who got their cars at the end of the last quarter.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Uh, no. Not true. Over on the October thread, people who ordered a month or more after me (9/5) are getting ViNs and deliveries. So no.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I did not indicate a trade when I ordered. On December 13th I received the trade-in text from Tesla, which I took as evidence of an end of quarter delivery. Completed the documentation it that day and got the quote within a few hours. It still looks like an end of quarter delivery, just not the...

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    I don't have my car. If I had my car, or a VIN, or had not had six different EDD windows shot out from under me while in them, I might feel differently. But thank you for changing the pronouns.

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    You really aren't listening. I'm not at all upset with myself. I understood the process and did everything necessary to avoid delays, including completing all the information required in the profile at the same time I placed the order: selected cash, scanned my insurance information and drivers...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    It was not clear to me at all, but I found some helpful posts about order completion right before I pushed the order button. Tesla should add a few words about their order process and what information is needed to complete the order process. Doing so It would not be difficult, but it would...

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    Three comments: First, you are still wrong. An order placed in December of 22 is irrelevant to the people who ordered in August or September. Demand is strong, but the new orders should be way down the list that you say exists. The gap between now and then is substantial. Second, the supply...

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    Ordering the same car today and having to wait for 11 months is irrelevant for those who are patiently waiting for their cars and wondering why they are getting jerked around. Many of the September order dates have already received VINs and taken delivery. A guy who ordered a MYLR in October...

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    I looked this up when I ordered in September, but don't remember the source. Tesla SAs are paid an hourly rate of $17 to $33 plus a "commission" of $100 per order where they assisted. The hourly rate is based on seniority and performance. The compensation structure changed a couple of years ago...

    Hi Poiu. Sorry about your delay. I ordered a MYLR in MSM on the same day as you. My EDD was pushed back to 3/9-3/31 this morning. Not as bad as your delay but for me it's just the latest in a long line of EDD changes. I would be interested in hearing what you learned. Thanks.

    CA Waiting Room

    Ditto. 9/5 order with no holds, pushed back again today to 3/9-3/31. This is my second end-of-quarter delivery date. WTF is absolutely right. They're just screwing me because I live in Northern California and an easy EOQ delivery. What a clown act.

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Same thing happened to me. Changed from 2/16-3/16 to to 3/9-3/31. This is the second time I've been assigned an EDD that ends on the last day of the quarter. When I pushed the order button on 9/5 my estimated delivery was November. Then December. I'm getting pretty fed up with Tesla and its...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That may be true in the long or medium term, but I've seen no evidence that Austin is producing 4680 cells at all, let alone in volume, just yet. Until they do, supply will be constrained. The Panasonic 4680 factory won't open until 2023. Here's a link to an article about Kato Road production...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Shanghai made 2,625 Model 3s in the first month of production, 3,898 the second month, and 10,128 units the third month. That's 84, 134, and 328 cars per production day. The total first quarter of production was less than 11% of the first full year's production. Production didn't exceed 400...
