On another thread, there was discussion that perhaps an announcement might be made in early October - Tesla wanting to avoid any disruption to 3Q sales, was the thought process.Well now that Battery Day is over and it looks like there's nothing changing near term for the MY, I am back to wanting my RWD! Anyone heard anything? I haven't heard a thing from Tesla since the funny text in early August.
I forgot to change my response, so iuI now.Wow, the tracker only shows 17 still listed as RWD. I wonder if some never got changed 'back' to RWD when he had bulk changed them to AWD long ago?
I have the same status: Waiting Contract and VIN, competed all tasks; Lic, Reg, Ins
I think the best indication is Troy's delivery spreadsheet see "Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet".
I think Tesla will focus on Performance and Long Range AWD Model Ys until they mostly clear the backlog.
Then I think they will do a run of LR RWD Model Ys or decide to sell us Long Range AWD models with front motors as a software-enabled upgrade feature. I think most likely is the limited run of LR RWD units, since they will likely start the SR RWD orders after that.
As of July 14, they are have cleared about
58.5% Long Range AWDbacklog and are producing about 5% to 7% of the backlog a week.
So around mid-September to mid-October.
It all depends on the production volume and the number of Performance and LR AWD orders.
Right now little is getting delivered because at the beginning of the quarter they ship the cars to the furthest destinations.
For Model Y this is Quebec and the East coast and all the cars are going to spend 3 weeks on rail and road.
I am also waiting to hear about the RWD LR was his tweets lead us to expect an announcement this month. Instead he gives us the 7 seater. Curious to see how they fit the 3rd row in. I heard on Tesla Daily that the 2021 Model 3 will be getting a new steering wheel that is heated. That should be carrying over the the Model Y. Good things may be coming to those who wait.
