    on the configurator it said mid 2018 for SR or LR AWD, now it simply describes AWD. should i take it as i won't get a SR AWD Model 3 until 2019 when the standard range battery becomes available? what are your thoughts?

    June/July time frame. I am thinking we can configure sometime in May, so every day or so I will check My Tesla Account and click "START DESIGNING" to see if I can configure.

    Suppose to be only the base car at 35 000$ that will be on 2019.

    Also, what I want to know, is the specs/price of AWD and SR battery. Hoping we know it before May.

    let me reiterate this: it said mid 2018 for SR or LR AWD, now it simply describes AWD. does this mean the only place the standard battery is mentioned is rwd which will be available in 2019. makes me question whether it's been pushed back. we know the VIN registration seems to indicate a great Q2 so far in terms of ramping up but we don't know how many cars people will opt to buy before standard range awd becomes available. my thoughts are that the following will become available roughly in the order i list them in.

    first production
    first production + awd
    performance
    long range non premium interior awd
    long range non premium interior rwd
    standard range premium interior awd
    standard range non premium interior awd
    standard range premium interior rwd
    standard range non premium interior rwd


    the one i'm going for is in bold

    I am sorry, using mobile on iPhone and pressed tweets and replies then it defaulted back. Two slaps on the wrist for me and two two boxes of chocolates to you my wrongly accused friend!

    let's not put the cart before the horse. let's continue to watch VIN registrations over the next few weeks to see if it looks like they'll hit 5k in july. who knows, maybe july is giving them a bit of extra runway and actually is a little conservative.

    I think most importantly is knowing the specs and pricing of the AWD model 3. We need to see if we can afford it also If the specs are worth the while since there is a big change of loosing the full tax rebate.

    That would help us decide if we should configure our car right now. I don't have Twitter can someone ask him when Tesla will release the specs and pricing :p

    i'll do that but he likely won't answer. the tax credit doesn't affect me seeing as i'm Canadian.
