I made my Model 3 reservation on the first day and have been (not so) patiently awaiting its delivery. The Tesla site says if I want the standard battery, which I do, delivery is expected “early 2018.” I’m willing to be generous and say any time before July fits that definition. But lately I’ve heard rumors that Tesla is going to only fill orders for the extended range battery for the foreseeable future and anyone who wants a standard battery is likely going to have to wait until 2019. Has anyone else heard this or better yet does anyone know if there is an official word from Tesla on it? I would love some reassurance that standard batteries really are going to be available in the near future.
