It can be that it is only available in paper for now like most cars. Employees can still read the manual that comes with the car.I'd be surprised if the employees actually taking delivery weren't able to access it via their mytesla page. There is important safety information in there, and things like how to get the car in tow mode, etc., that you would want people to be able to access independent of the vehicle. Gut tells me a copy will dribble out within the next month or so.
Model S and X pdfs are online and have been for ages. Or isn't that what you meant?FWIW, a Tesla owner a few months back mentioned in a forum that, as part of the car delivery process, you will get a link to your online manual - it speeds up the delivery process and new owner gets a chance to acquaint the self with the car and features right before they receive the car. No mention was made kept a paper manual, but that doesn't mean there won't be one. I wouldn'tt be surprised if the paper one is a reduced version and a much bigger manual is online for you to print out yourself if you want.
I would love someone to post a link to the manual soon so I wouldn't have to wait until I configure and am near delivery time to read it. (Did anyone ever post a link to a Model S online?) But the manual may not even be finalized yet, Tesla may be asking all employees who get vehicles in The first 2-3 months to give them feedback on readability, points covered, etc. to help make the document better.
