    Hi,

    I got my MX 75D on August 4. I waited all of 4 days.
    I am in Canada and the car I wanted was in inventory somewhere in Vancity. Well I tell people I waited less than a week they look at me in amazement.

    Just wanted to put it out there, seems like people don't know how quick you could get a car.

    Inventory is substantial - they just don't have a very good way for customers to search it.

    ev-cpo.com is a great way to search new/used inventory.

    Rossy, Hank at ev-cpo knows of the larger inventory pool but only lists what Tesla puts on the public web site. There are others who have hunted inventory with other methods. Tesla seems to want to show the inventory at a steady rate rather than the entirety.

    Yeah, as much as I work to keep ev-cpo.com current, there is much more in inventory that Tesla does not publish, so it's best to contact a local sales associate to get access to that corporate inventory.

    Things should get "better" in September. Hopefully, Tesla either lists more of the inventory or allows better searching.

    If enough people contact @JonMc and ask "give us a better way to search inventory" it may help move what is out there which is in his best interest.

    My experience was similar. I ordered my car in Vancouver when the vehicle was in Toronto (half way across the country). They quoted me 6-8 weeks and possibly longer. To everyone's surprise it showed up less than 3 weeks later and they didn't even know it had shipped in Vancouver when it showed up. Delivery was 2 days later. So way earlier than expected and a very pleasant surprise for me.

    Were you surprised how disorganized Tesla Vancouver is? I was shocked that with how amazing the company is in general when it got down to it they seems to not know so much.
