Tesla never ever considered it.
I just realized I paid for my Model 3 in full with a check totalizing the full amount minus the configuration amount deposit. In the invoice the original 1000$ deposit wasn’t there and I didn’t even realize it when writing down my check because I was getting a SR+ at the price of a SR.
Then, I received 2 x 1000$ checks in the mail. One for the Model 3 1000$ deposit reservation I cancelled to order a 7 seats model Y instead and a second 1000$ check to refund the deposit of the Model 3 I took delivery on April 15th. The fun fact is that they called me 3 days earlier to let me know the Model 3 arrived sooner and I couldn’t make it to the bank before 4PM to get a registered check so they just accepted a normal check of 55k, I wonder how many companies would accept that.
