Order to delivery time

Order to delivery time

I placed my reservation just before Christmas # 16,600's.
I spoke to reservations today and they said I should expect my build request in 4-7 weeks ('can't be more specific right now'- thought this was pretty accurate).
He said I should expect delivery within 90 days of receiving my signed order paperwork. This seems to be much quicker turn around than when I placed the order in mid-December, not to mention all those who have gone before.
I hope this is helpful and interested to hear how consistent it is with others' feedback.

I "finalize" button on 1/7 with # 12,xxx and signed pre-papers the same day. Delivery estimate is Feb/March, which is far less than 90 days.

Well, if it comes near the end of March (which is probably a reasonable time to expect delivery) it will be close to 90 days.

Put Deposit 11.20.12. Finalized 01.14.13 Delivery April/May 2013

One thing Tesla has taught us so far is that not all orders are equal. Examples abound:

- 85s got bumped to the front cause 60 and 40 were not being made yet
- Within 85s availability of certain parts dictated who got their car first.

So probably until production settles down in Q2/Q3, I am not sure there will be a consistent order to delivery time frame. In short, it depends.

RN#13,9xx, Just recd the invitation to finalize. I will be finalizing today.

jchangyy | 14 janvier 2013

you're right..

85kw + active air > 60kw + active air > 60kw/85kw + std air > 40kw + std air > red, etc...

@heems, jchangyy - also during the end-of-year rush, people who didn't have to arrange financing or trades got bumped up simply because they could close the deal faster.

No way a Christmas deposit will finalize in 4-7 weeks...
I put down deposit Oct 10, 2013...
still waiting...
hopefully by early Feb. I'll finalize (emphasize HOPEFULLY)...

gregv64 | 14 janvier 2013

@celtrog - if you put your deposit down on Oct 10th you should have already received your finalize invitation. If the finalize button doesn't appear on your MyTesla page you should contact them.

jchangyy | 14 janvier 2013

@celtrog....I put down deposit Oct 13 and confirmed on Oct 16th. Got finalize button on 1/7/13 with delivery date of Feb/March.

You should contact them as Gregv64 suggested.

I'm reservation number 12,8xx

I have put in a call as we speak (sort of)...
thanks again!!

You put down your deposit 9 months in the future? How did you arrange that? Do you already have a FluxMobile? (Oct. 2013)


B_flat | 15 janvier 2013

Do you have to look for the Finalize button? Doesn't Tesla email you as well?

jchangyy | 15 janvier 2013

Sometimes there is a lag between email and the appearnce of the "finalize" button.

james | 15 janvier 2013

I was reservation 10,260. Got my email to finalize last week. Did so yesterday and now waiting on the paperwork to sign.

They say I should expect delivery between Feb/Mar.

Brian H | 15 janvier 2013

And sometimes there is a lag between the appearance of the Finalize button and the email. Some never get one.

I got my signed paper work done on 12/28/12. My reservation Number was #106xx and they gave me an estimated delivery of Feb/Mar 2013. This is for a 85kw model. I'm hoping to get a delivery sometime before March as I see they are cranking up the production numbers.

bungakelty1 | 15 janvier 2013

Correction res # 10060.

jchangyy | 16 janvier 2013

well, quick update. I'm reservation 12,xxx and "finalized" on 1/7, pre-MVPA signed the same day with delivery window of Feb/March. Just spoke with "Jxxx" at Tesla hotline, and for my car--85kw, silver, air, she thinks it'll go into production in beginning of February with construction time of approx. 7 days. after testing, paperwork etc, they estimate that I should be able to pick it up at the end of February. 6 more weeks...hard to wait.

roofmonkey | 16 janvier 2013

While finalized my order on December 27, Model S, 85kw I opted to not get active air. I got the confirmation email but no indication as to a timeline. Is anyone else in this situation and have they made any further inquiries into a projected delivery window?

gregv64 | 16 janvier 2013

@roofmonkey: Look through your MVPA for a delivery estimate. It's probably April/May.

Thanismanee | 16 janvier 2013

Res# 11,XXX. Finalized my order and signed paper on 01/02/12. 85kw,black, leather seat but std air suspension. They gave me an estimate delivery April / May 2013. Did anyone have the same timeline ? It looks like it is up to your configuration and option rather than your reservation number. Correct me if I am wrong.

gregv64 | 16 janvier 2013

If you choose any of the "delayed" options (40kWh, Red or standard suspension) it delays your order by a month or two, but other than that it should be in res order.

Brian H | 16 janvier 2013

It's a mystic mix of both. And sometimes there are weird exceptions to all the rules (both early and late).
