    Bummer. I hoped that with the central screen in the Model 3 that it would be easier to make right hand drive versions but unfortunately Elon tweeted that UK right hand drive models won't be made until Their Summer which makes it Winter down here in Oz. So June 2018. Bummer.

    That's made.
    Add 12 weeks for freight.
    So first deliveries will be November 2018.

    Elon was asked when they would be on the road in the UK, and I assume that's what his response referred to.
    Summer 2018 was about when I expected anyway, so I'm not disappointed in this news. More time to save!

    It's good of Elon to confirm. At least we know roughly when to expect it now. And by then hopefully any hardware issues will have been sorted.
