Maybe theyI still have an active order from July of 2020, so these time frames do not seem accurate.
EDIT: Ordered July 2020, attempted delivery August 1st, rejected due to paint defects, placed back in cue, added hitch. Added FSD at $8k the morning the price went to $10k, just before the increase. Every 6 weeks (give or take) I get a text from Tesla asking if I'm ready to proceed with my order.
I think the order date has nothing to do with the rebate/tax credit. The order is for Tesla to get a car ready for you. Until you pay for the entire car, it’s not recorded as a sale.I'm in a similar situation. I placed an order for a MYLR 5 seat on 3/22/21 and had my sales advisor place it on hold the same day as I would like to take delivery June-August which is when a lease ends. I recently considered taking delivery a little earlier, in May, however then with news of the Biden infrastructure plan I'd like to see what happens in the event I can save some cash. The one thing I'm curious about however is from the many news articles I've been reading about the plan, it mentions "point of sale" rebates often, meaning it won't be a tax credit like the previous $7,500 one. I'm curious if "point of sale" means the point at which you order the vehicle (and pay the $100) or the point at which you take delivery?
This would obviously make a difference in terms of the potential $7,500 or $10,000+ rebate. If it turns out to be based on the original order date, I'll be putting in a new order and taking the $100 hit.
