Delivery date estimates for 60 and 85 kWh? No longer synchronized?

    Playing around with the Design Studio today I noticed that 60 kWh battery orders are set for "Late October" delivery. Standard 85 kWh, on the other hand, are set for just "October." I don't recall any separation between these two before. Is this a new thing?

    Interestingly, the P85 models are also set for "October." Given the priority delivery given to P85 models, I am surprised to see the same time frame quoted for the P85 and the standard 85.

    Interesting observation iadbound! That was my recollection too, that S60 and S85 showed the same, and P85 would be one notch earlier.

    When I started looking in April and ordered in May there was a difference between 60, 85, and P85.

    They used to show "1-2 months" priority and "2-3 months" for P85 and 60/85.

    However, based on tracking stats and the delivery tracker, 85's almost always deliver earlier than 60s. So maybe they're just showing better data now?

    That makes sense. Hopefully the folks with 60 orders won't get up in arms. I wonder if the 85s end up being built sooner just because of battery supply.

    That would make sense and avoid ruffled feathers iadbound, Tesla could simply say it's a matter of how rapidly the batteries become available and it's not deliberate prioritization apart from that.
