    i was wondering why there hasn’t been any reported deliveries of the new S/X yet. It seems There’s a legal reason why there’s a delay. Check it out

    This is why I no longer watch Alex Guberman, he seems to over inflate troubles with Tesla. Example (he once hinted that Tesla may have set their factory on fire to delay the Model 3 release) after that I had enough of his stammering.

    Haven’t watched the video but I’m guessing this is just a timing issue and deliveries will start once the models are certified. I think this has happened in the past but can’t recall the specific circumstances.

    I'm not adding a view to a video that is probably full of crap.

    Ugh such a long video for such a little amount of information. I skipped around a bit for a minute and they spent 8 minutes to basically say this:

    The new motor makes it a new car model, and so they need to get the doorsill stickers approved by the government before they can apply them and legally sell the car.

    Given that we've got a confirmed Raven S delivery on this board tonight, the video's info is either incorrect or already outdated.

    We had the first S 100D delivered in Texas. Our S sat at the local service center for a month, waiting for the EPA rating to be approved, so Tesla could sell us the car.

    The biggest frustration with the delay was how difficult it was to get anyone in Tesla to tell us the reason why Tesla couldn't sell us our S. It wasn't until we got someone at Tesla HQ that we got the actual reason. Our Delivery Specialist and the local Service Center evidently weren't aware of the reason why there was a delay in deliveries...

    Wouldn't be surprised for this to be happening again with the new packs. Tesla can get new changes into production much faster than the government can get through the approval process...

    I wish there was another rating icon "Click Bait - Don't Bother".

    Raven is the internal name for the updated powertrain/suspension on the S/X.
