Per the source lookup my vin is 68xx. White on White PUP w/ tow no FSD. I have a feeling the tow package is going to be something they put on afterwards with the service team. Although it would make more sense to put on when assembling the car.

I was wondering the same. It could be mobile service will do this after delivery.

Interesting. That gives me hope. The local Tesla manager told me they are just waiting on a VIN for me (White/Black, non-P, Induction wheels, w/tow, FSD). I don't mind if I have to wait to arrange mobile service or take it back for install so long as it happens. When I added it there were mixed signals as to whether it could even be added later or not, so I figured better safe than sorry.

I emailed the delivery specialist and here’s the reply.

“I believe it will need to be retrofitted to the vehicle after taking delivery.”

I think they are going to deliver as much as possible in the 2nd quarter.

I ordered on 2/28/2020, white ext, black seats, 20'', tow hitch with FSD. My VIN was assigned on 5/11 and received a text to schedule pick up. I called Tesla to add a tow hitch, and my VIN just disappear from my account but pick up date still there.
Made some calls and emails to confirm, store manager said now the hitch can only be installed in Fremont factory, so my model y is assigned to someone and I need to wait a "new" manufacture Y with hitch. Don't know how long will it take......
They didn't tell me I need to wait from beginning, or I won't add tow hitch at this time......
DO NOT add tow hitch before you pick up your Y........

Has anyone had a firm confirmation that the hitch can even be added after the fact? I've seen a lot of mixed messaging from Service Centers on this point.

My delivery advisor indicated that factory installed tow hitch would delay delivery by an unknown time frame. Seems like those orders are also being delivered now. I don't know if that's because my advisor was wrong or if they are just installing them at the delivery center before you take delivery.

In the same conversation, she indicated that they would be available for installation after the fact. Sandy Munro also confirmed that it was possible in one of his videos. I'm guessing there are supply constraints at the moment.

I spoke with a delivery advisor (Cody) again this morning. I placed the order on 01/29 and the order was updated on 4/10 for tow hitch. He said the change made my order go back in line. WTH!

An advisor I spoke to couple days ago said tow hitch do not delay delivery.

Not sure whom to believe at this point. The advisor said if I removed the tow hitch, it will further delay my delivery since the order will have a new date.
