Regarding my Tesla Model x order and failure of Tesla to honor the purchase agreement.
On Nov 21 2020 I placed an order for a New model X with Tesla Motors. I have been patiently waiting for my delivery and keeping in touch with Tesla on this matter. I was recently told that delivery would be in the May/June time frame. This is not ideal but acceptable to me.
On 02/19/21 I was notified that Tesla would not honor the sales agreement price. Because the model X that I purchased was "no longer being manufactured". The price of $84,290 as agreed was now to become $93,490. So this does confirm that the Model X is being manufactured but Tesla wants another $9,200 to complete the transaction.
As a side note it is impossible to believe that the decision to no longer produce the Model X is now being communicated to me only now in Febuary 2021 3 months after the sales agreement was executed with the $100 deposit. In New Jersey Tesla would have 3 days to terminate the agreement. Clearly this time has expired.
This increase is unacceptable. Tesla clearly is offering a Model X long range as contracted in our sales agreement. Even if the Model X was "discontinued" there is nothing in the contract that would release Tesla from its agreement to provide a new model X as contracted for in the agreement. Superficial changes to the orientation of the touch screen and or the addition or subtraction of any minor feature does not make it a different model. The consumer does not know what or when internal changes might take place at any random time in the manufacturing process. The agreement does not specify these things or even a "Model Year" that will be delivered. The only criteria is that it is a newly manufactured Model X with a specific paint color and 1 or two trim options.
The agreed contract does not give Tesla the right to cancel the deal or change the terms or agreed price.
Tesla needs to deliver a newly manufactured Tesla Model X as agreed in the contract at the agreed price. I will not accept any other resolution. I am fully prepared to go the arbitration route if that is what is necessary.
This is a very sad thing when a "Fortune 500 company" will not honor its sales agreement for its top of the line vehicle. The claim that the ordered car is no longer available is fiction and more typical of unscrupulous organizations.
I ask you Tesla to deliver the Model X as per the legally binding contract agreed to and written by Tesla Motors.
