50 miles odo normal?

Hi All,

I'm scheduled to pick up a Model 3 next week and I just received the final purchase agreement paperwork from Tesla. To my surprise, the ODO Mileage reading is listed as 50 miles. I assumed the mileage would be under 10 miles.

I called Tesla and was told that 50 miles is normal for a new car and that it's been built for my order and not a previous cancelation.

In your experience, what's the normal odometer reading for a new Tesla upon taking delivery?

Thanks in advance!
Is this some sort of legal limit for new cars? boaterva wrote it would be illegal but I mean are all "new" cars required to have less than some number of miles when delivered?

There is no limit to the number of miles on a "new" car, it just can't have more miles on the car than is reported on the paperwork.

In this case you get an extra ~40 miles of warranty. ;)
