    I just posted this over on the /r/Teslamotors subreddit on reddit.

    Tesla Model 3 Deliveries Changed?

    The site now says: "Production begins late 2017", while before it used to say "Deliveries begin late 2017. Does this mean the actual deliveries to customers has been pushed into early 2018? I sure hope not.

    What do you guys think?

    AFAIK, it was always the plan to have production begin in late 2017. Old version with "deliveries" struck me as a pretty glaring mistake to have on the website. Glad they fixed it and corrected the statement.

    I just looked back at the Model 3 unveil video and Elon said deliveries begin late 2017, and it's even written out on the screen behind him. :\

    Shock horror!!! Tesla delivery timeframe slips again! And you expected what exactly? We all knew that we wouldn't see the 3 until at least 2018 (or 2020 in the UK).

    Already being discussed here:. My Tesla M3 Reversation Page updated

    BTW, I just checked mine and it still says "Deliveries begin late 2017". From the thread I linked above, apparently non-US reservations have the wording changed to "Production", which is probably more accurate since the first wave of cars will be fulfilled in the US (where deliveries being late 2017) and other geographies will come later. This phased regional rollout plan was announced by Elon from the get-go.

    As @BluestarE3 says my Mytesla page hasn't changed. It says:

    Your Model 3 was reserved on 3/31/2016. Deliveries will begin in late 2017. You'll be invited to configure based on the date of your reservation.
    This looks like they are trying to provide updated guidance to customers on when deliveries will start for new reservations.

    I think the updated guidance starts to be customer specfic (employee of Elon Musk Industries, previous ownership, reservation period, region). Mine now reads: Production will start in 2017 (note: not LATE) and some people don't report changes.

    I don't see any slippage or delays in this. It actually sounds like they're trying to be more accurate and let people outside of the US know that their production is due to start in 2018. From what I've heard and read everyone in the US still has "deliveries" on their page.

    The way I read it was "Delivery estimate for new {emphasis mine} reservations is mid 2018 or later." I'm ok with this as there are a few hundred thousand ahead of the folks who reserve today.

    yep, same here.
    "Your Model 3 was reserved on 3/31/2016. Deliveries will begin in late 2017."
    I'm hoping that means they expect my delivery in 2017 instead of the March 2018 the estimator has :D

    Ever heard of Tesla time? Of course deliveries will begin 2018 at the earliest. I sincerely doubt any delivery will take place in 2017. All the better as it means more folks will get access to the 7500 tax credit.

    My still says the following:

    "Your Model 3 was reserved on 3/31/2016. Deliveries will begin in late 2017. You'll be invited to configure based on the date of your reservation."

    None-US, none-owner and the wording is now on my myTesla is now (translated to) "Production is scheduled to start in 2017".
