    i just got the following email from Tesla.

    “In our last round of invitations to Model 3 reservation holders, we received an unusually high volume of orders. As a result, we now expect your car to be ready in July”.

    Anybody else?

    I placed my order two weeks ago and I haven't received that. When did you order yours?

    Same, my 5 week mark is coming up so they probably had to send something to the April 18 invites. Sucks but I’m glad they’re communicating.

    Sorry, I misread the original. Mine says June not July.

    I just got the same email. My jaw is still on the floor. I sold my car and I start a job where I have to commute in June. I work from home at the moment. This is going to be a really expensive delay. Why did they invite us? Did they not realize 400k people wanted the car? Or is this the line they are using to keep the rebate till the end of the year?

    Just received an email from Tesla stating that my car won’t be ready until July now. I configured on 4/27 and was expecting a vin by month end. That seems to be the going trend and now they are saying July. Anyone else get this disheartening email?

    More evidence that Tesla is trying to keep total US deliveries below 200K to extend the tax credits.

    I ordered mine on the 6th of May so would that mean that mine would take longer than 6 weeks? :(

    Or it's evidence that they opened up configuration to way more people than they could handle (over estimating their ability to ramp quickly), and they're finally acknowledging it.

    I agree that the delay is likely tax credit related.

    On the plus side, Tesla is actually communicating about the delay/diversion.

    Same, and also July. Registration runs out on my intended trade-in in July, so it will be close...
