    I wonder if the existing referral program will apply to Model 3... (?)

    In terms of Model 3 owners getting referral credits for helping other people decide to buy Model 3, but also Model S/X owners referring customers to Model 3 or Model 3 owners referring people to buy model S/X.

    The situation seems a little different given how much backlog demand there is for Model 3. Has anyone heard anything about their plans for a referral program related to Model 3?

    Everything I've seen and heard has been focused on referral credits for sales of Model X or S. I think there is so much backlog right now for Model 3 that it will be a few years before they might include the 3 in the program. Maybe if a 3 owner sells an X or S, though.

    But again, haven't heard anything re the 3.

    You might get something for referring, but I'm not so sure Tesla is giving $1,000 off to the purchaser on 400,000 cars.

    I would suspect the referral program for the Model 3 will take a different form (or not exist) until they can get that wait list down a little :rolleyes:

    given the volume of pre-orders for the Model 3, it'll probably be either nothing or something lame like a certain number of free supercharger credits per referral.

    If they do offer a referral discount on Model 3 orders, you can be sure that they raised the price $1,000 first.

    Seems like they could keep the program but cut rewards/discounts in half. Hopefully a Model 3 owner can at least refer others to get an S/X. Cutting the 3 out of the program will make 3 owners feel even more like 2nd class citizens.

    I don't think they are interested in selling more 3s

    why would Tesla need a referral program with over a years orders they haven't completed?

    For goodness sake, they were trying to anti-sell the Model 3.

    Now that is a very good point.
    The current system isn't a model specific referral code.
    Adding 400,000 new referral opportunities would be well worth it

    of course, in order to get a referral code we have to take delivery of a Model 3. . . . .
    Nov17-Jan18 can't come fast enough :cool:

    Are you hoping for test drive before you order or are you all in? Looks like mine will be about month after yours as mine is Dec-Feb.

    It would be nice to get a test drive for sure, but not a requirement.
    Having lived with the foibles of the Leaf for three years it will be a refreshing change.
