    With on going production ramp-up what would be a realistic delivery month (USA / New Jersey) if I was to order a 90D 7 seats with most options now?

    From what I'm seeing right now, anyone who has reported a VIN is also reporting a delivery estimate no later than early May. We also know that some people who reserved in late Feb have already received their VIN. So I'm thinking early June if you reserve now. Unless they put you on the slow train.

    Unless you requested a late delivery :D which I did due to living far away from a service center.

    I changed my 70D to a 90D on March 11th and I am still waiting for a VIN. I have a 6 seater, premium package.

    Thanks.
    @Out4aDuck any identified reasons why you'd be put on the slow train?
    @K-MTG let us know when the VIN comes and what the date is!

    @2virgule5, Yes, deliveries east of the Mississippi are generally done by rail for the first two months of the quarter. It can add two or three weeks to the delivery time.

    I started a new thread in which I did a cut and paste from the email. I don't know how to do a screen shot and remove my email information.

    Here is a link to the thread: New Tesla Marketing Email

    Thanks for posting, regarding the screenshot I believe you can just crop the image afterwards.

    Well I guess I'll know soon enough, just pulled the trigger on reserving one. Let's see when I'll be invited to configure.

    That email makes it sound like they have a low number of people turning their reservatons into confirmed orders. I must say I did the same thing and gave it a wait and see. My order will confirm tomorrow (4/6).
    With the estimated 30,000 reservations, the production queue should be a lot longer right now if they all converted into orders.

    My wait time was about 48 hours but I reserved on March 18th. This was after I cancelled my first reservation on the last day before my order confirmed and then re-reserved about 7 days later.

    I believe the 30,000 reservations includes the rest of the world. As long as the Model X is needing new parts to work out bugs, I doubt they want to ship any overseas yet. This helps US orders go through faster for now, but is not an accurate indication of overall demand.

    Hi, I have not posted in a while, just have been a happy Model S owner.
    I have now pulled the trigger to get a Model X a week ago. Our order will go final tonight.
    I was also confused by the email Tesla owners received regarding that April/May delivery.
    I felt that this email had to be a bit dishonest as it would only refer to the P90D model and I wanted a 90D. However, after being on the phone with Tesla last Wednesday somebody from headquarters sent me the following email two days ago:
    "The estimated delivery timeline of April/May applied for both the P90D and the 90D Model X! Let me know if you have any questions."
    So I am now hopeful for a late May, early June delivery. Yay.

    This seems to be the timeline they are working with. Sales rep I spoke to said production was ramping up significantly. They will need to clear the backlog of the orders that were waiting on parts, may possibly need to have some parts replaced with new versions. If they have caught up with that by now then we will be seeing a lot of orders getting pushed into production quickly. This may explain why some early orders have been delayed even after getting VINs.

    This seems to be the timeline they are working with.

    While I did not receive any invite to configure, as of this morning my tesla page started to show an edit button that goes right to the configuration site (the only difference with the one now publicly available is that mine does not mention specific date ie May delivery but a more vague mid year). I configured and pressed "order".

    Now I understand the order will auto confirm in one week, any way to speed that up if I have no doubts?

    No....Tesla used to allow a person to skip the 7 day confirm period but changed the policy with the X.
