Hi my Tesla estimate shows Jan - March 2018 when can i expect email to configure??
Dude come on. Why would we know the answer to that. You'll get your email sometime between January 1st, and March 31st.
Some seem to be getting their vehicles barely a week after being invited to configure, so it could be late March (assuming the window doesn't slip).
I would guess sometime in February. Are you getting First Production or waiting for Standard battery.
That lot is emptying out that had all those cars. 200k this quarter and delivering as much as possible.
@andy.connor.e - That's why its called a "Forum" ;)
@DoctorU - First Production
@vikchordia I keep seeing people configuring their model 3's and saying it will take 4 weeks. So once you get the configuration option I would say you have 4-6 weeks before delivery.
Congrats! I'll be waiting until late 2018... or later for mine.
@DoctorU - Thanks & Good Luck to you as well!
i got Dec to Feb 2018 estimated delivery and still no invite.. hopefully I get the invite this month especially where most estimates it takes at least 4 weeks to get delivery after configuration.
@Ebgatus are you in east cost or West coast?. Good luck!
My estimate still shows Nov 2017 - Jan 2018 and I haven't been invited to configure yet. You've got plenty of time before being asked. (I'm a current owner with a 3/31 in store reservation, but located on the east coast.)
@PhillyGal - Thanks for the input. Did you call Tesla to get any updates and if they gave you an ETA?
According to Tesla Sales Team, the "Delivery Estimates" are when you are expected to get your Configuration Email. Hang in there, you will see the light soon enough.
I reserved 4/1. Non owner, east coast. Original was Jan-March, now Feb-Apr. My cousin (current owner of both S and X) reserved same day, also east coast, estimate still shows Nov-Jan but he hasnt received an invite yet.
@vikchordia - I haven't called Tesla. Most folks I'd reach are not authorized to give any info anyway.
It's hard to say but I got my email with enough time to get my car within the delivery estimate. I think that almost by definition, it's a range because there will be a range of answers. Some might get it earlier in the range, but the hope is that Tesla will get to all customers in that group by the end of the range.
There's also the issue of whether you configure right away or wait a while. It also matters what others do. If many people in your batch hold off for the base model or the AWD, that could mean that your wait would be shorter. I have no clue what percentage of people who get an invite want the current configuration.
Owner. 3/31. Cal.
Got invite mid-Dec, want standard, no extra.
The “wait” choice first said Jan, has now moved to Feb.
Don’t know if that means to configure or to receive.
Hurry the fck up Tesla.
Just adding my situation to this conversation -
Non-owner, east coast, 3/31 online reservation - currently says Jan 18 - Mar 18. Previously was Dec 17 - Feb 18 but also expect it to get shifted again given the 4th Qtr production press release.
@mickeywdw1254 - Same for myself - Non-owner, east coast, 3/31 online reservation - currently says Jan 18 - Mar 18.
Yes it's frustrating..but in Elon We TRUST!!!!
"It'll never happen!"
Thats why cars are being delivered?
"They cant make them fast enough!"
They delivered almost 8x more than last quarter.
"They're burning through too much cash!"
Investment in their own company is why they are where they are.
Blah, blah, blah..........
Yeah, I am not frustrated though. They know more about what they are doing than I do so I will defer to their guidance for delivery dates and the like. I mean, I hope the push back is maybe only by another month like it was last time but if it is more than I will still gladly wait it out. The Model 3, for me, is that intriguing and cutting edge that I am not going to miss the chance of owning one just bc of a few months delay. Heck, I have waited almost 2 years as it is now...what is another few months. :)
Maybe the delay will be alleviated from all the people who have no patience.
