    Hey there!

    In the call in section of RightTheLightning 192, a caller from Byron bay said that she'd ordered the Y, yet when i go to the Tesla site and click "order" it redirects me to the Model S site. Can we pre-order the Y from Australia yet?

    Thanks!

    I cannot and I checked UK and they can order 3 but not Y so I guess we need to wait longer ;-(

    Did she 'order' a Y or 'reserve' it?

    There is an Order button for Model Y on the USA page for Model Y.
    I imagine she has done that and perhaps has a reservation.

    Yes, apologies, she said she reserved, not ordered.
    Obviously if i use my VPN to use present a US IP, i see the correct reserve page.
    Assuming thats what she did... i wonder why?

    Heard that call on RTL podcast, thought it wasn’t right. Don’t think you would get any priority until it’s opened officially for Australia.

    That's right. You would think anyone thinking about a Y has learned their lesson from how long it's taken for the 3 to be ready to configure in Australia. I also think that's why Tesla hasn't allowed ordering or reservations for Australia.
