Tesla Model 3 production to ‘likely exceed’ 500 cars per day this week, says Elon Musk
Would be great if some of those were 19" Sport Wheels
The next problem will be to find buyers. They need the std battery pack soon.
Last I checked I am still available for their current offering, just need an invite to configure.
<refresh, refresh, refresh>
No, they need to improve the bottom line and not cut margins on individual sales anytime soon. What makes you think the demand for expensive configurations will dry up anytime soon?
I switched from Aeros after the Edmunds review said they were better for acceleration, braking, handling and even ride. Plus they said it seemed like the suspension was tuned for the 19s. I hated giving up the efficiency though.
Unfortunately it seems like another side effect is that I’ll get my car later. I configured April 13.
Probably not. With P and AWD they'll open up lots more orders, I'll be very surprised if they accelerate SR prior to getting closer to satisfying higher specification. They have yet to sell much of the US backlog, almost none of the Canadian and still have quite a few LHD international markets unserved, much less the RHD ones. They'll have little reason to rush SR except to satisfy the clamor for an actual US$35,000 delivery.
Respectfully disagree with this one. They have about a half a million buyers, many of which have been waiting for the higher optioned cars. I have no data to back this up but my gut feeling is that there are many more people waiting for AWD and Performance variants than are waiting for base configuration. Could be wrong but either way it's great to see more variants coming available.
Based on dates of reservations for those being invited to configure in US and Canada, this statement is only true for Canadian buyers.
Sure you do! Tesla Model 3 Invites - Deferrals has the list of reasons people have self-reported for deferring. 46% said they’re waiting for options that will increase the price (awd and performance), while the remaining are waiting on options that will lower or at least not significantly change the price.
Everyone is a self-selected participant in this “survey”, so not the best as far as statistics are concerned, but still good info.
COME ON INVITE! I'm still awaiting an invite for the RWD LR! Take my MONEY!
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a standard battery pack version. There's a lot more cake to bake before they get to the icing.
It was the tires that come on the 19's vs the 18's that make the difference, not the wheels themselves. If you put the same tires on the aeros you should see better performance.
I think you missed including the appropriate emoticon in your post. With 450,000 reservation holders there is no shortage of buyer. Nothing remotely like that figure has ever happened before in automotive history. Even if Tesla waited another year before offering the base battery the company still could not produce enough Model 3’s this year to satisfy demand. But with the standard battery coming this year, along with Dual Motor and Performance options, it is clear to me that demand will exceed supply for many years, even after the next couple of Gigafactories (which will make batteries and complete cars under one roof) are operational.
Come on VIN first lol. It’s been a month and no vin. No use in configuring and not getting vin
Thanks. I just changed my order back to aeros.
For my own personal data point... I am indeed waiting for the information about the price and eventually availability for AWD (no interest for Performance edition). In my case, Late 2018 might squeak under the full Federal tax credit cutoff. However, with my wife having purchased a Honda Ridgeline AWD this past weekend, I may have a weaker desire to hold out for an AWD Tesla. Four or five more days and I should find out...
Is production active 7 days a week ?
Imagine there will be a ton of configurations when it is announced that the tax credit is close to being reduced/eliminated.
We will see how many reservation convert to sales. Elon seems to be very sensitive on talking about this.
