    This was posted in the FAQ tab of the Model 3 Owners page.

    Because Tesla vehicles are made-to-order, you will receive several communications from Tesla during the course of production.

    Before Model 3 production begins, Tesla will send out invitations to certain geographical areas, starting on the West coast and moving East, to the online-configurator. This website will allow you to configure your Model 3 to your liking including colour, options, charging etc... Pricing and delivery dates will change based on your chosen options.

    You have one week top make changes to your oder before the factory will begin sourcing materials. During this time the deposit is fully refundable.

    Once you car begins production your deposit becomes non-refundable and will be applied to the total purchase price of your Model 3.

    This information is subject to change based on Model 3 production plans and ramp schedule in late 2017.

    I want to get my Model 3 as early as possible. Based on what is known about Model S/X orders: will my spot in the production queue be determined only by the time I finalize the configuration or will I also have to have the payment/finance completed before I get a spot in the production queue?

    flatsix911 at the first step in that table it says insurance. At that point do you have the vin to give to your insurance to setup coverage

    I was provided the VIN at step one and was asked for proof of Insurance at the Delivery appointment.

    Am I correct in noticing that it appears that Tesla communicates directly with your lending institution to get the information it needs?
