    What are you thinking? Says it won't change your spot in line but will it? I'm waiting for dual motor either way or getting another X instead. Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 9.06.33 AM.png

    I saved. I think the whole purpose is just to let Tesla give you a better estimate for deliveries. You can change it any time.

    If you save, and then refresh the page it presents the "save" button again and shows your preference. So, chances are everyone has the first option "saved" by default in the system until you make a different selection.

    Trevor Page just mentioned on the Model3OwnersClub live stream they just finished that Tesla has about 75,000 USA deliveries left to qualify for the tax credit, so, if you choose an AWD car, I'd say you would be out of luck for the credit. Something to think about. Not that what you choose on the webpage matters, but a factor in an ordering decision when that pops up!

    Not sure how anyone could say that with any degree of certainty at this point.

    Exactly. Two things.
    1. That would just be to the start of the phase out.
    2. Will our legislators let the incentive run out on an American company employing thousands of American workers while other foreign companies who bided their time get to cash in? Maybe. Maybe not.

    That is just when the final two quarters of 100% tax credit is triggered. There is then more quarters of 50% and 25% credits.

    I fixed it for you. It just doesn't go away. It is still full credit for the quarter right after the quarter when they reach 200K and then is reduced by half for some period and reduced by half again for some period then it is totally gone. I don't remember the timeframe for how long the reduced credits are and too lazy to look it up. I'm sure others here will know.

    My Tesla appears to be down, but if you go to the Model 3 page you'll find a new section Reservation Holder Update with a link to CHECK YOUR ESTIMATED DELIVERY.

    I saved it. Hopefully the delivery estimate date range is left coast to right coast so I can take the tax credit this year.

    Mine says November not October so it looks like current owners get it about a month earlier.

    Yes. Yes they will let it run out. You must not watch the news. Trying to kill off the black mans healthcare law will consume every legislative minute....

    Seriously.

    Right, I know that. We've been talking about here for the last year. :D And the AWD isn't going to be available until late 2018 for most people. So my observation is probably pretty correct. Won't be much left by the time the AWD is rolling out.

    As I say elsewhere, I know that and AWD won't be out for over a year. Won't be much left of it, if anything, by late 2018. All I was saying was that people waiting for AWD won't have much of a credit left, if there is anything by that point.

    And do you really expect this Congress to re-authorize anything to do with EVs? What does American or Foreign companies have to do with it? It's purchases in the USA of EVs sold here.

    Final quarter (singular) of the full $7.5k credit, i believe.

    Hi, everybody. Here is the latest situation about federal tax credits:

    As of today, Tesla has sold 134,735 cars in the USA and they are expected to hit 200,000 USA sales on 20 Jan 2018 based on my calculation. According to the rules, if they hit 200K sales on any day in Q1 2018, full tax credits will continue until the end of Q2 2018. Therefore, the most likely scenario looks like this:

    $7,500 for deliveries until Jun 30, 2018
    $3,750 for deliveries until Dec 31, 2018
    $1,875 for deliveries until Jun 30, 2019

    In the future, for the latest info on this issue, you can open this page and scroll all the way to the right. If you want to check out the rules, open this page, scroll down and expand the phaseout section.
