Anyone in the US and Canada can now order a Tesla Model 3 without a reservation
You’ll just have to wait 6-9 months to get your car.
If you’ve been salivating at the mouth for a chance to preorder a Tesla Model 3 and you live in the US or Canada, rejoice, your day is finally here.
Previously, folks looking to throw their name in the hat for a preorder had to dish out a $1,000 reservation fee to hold their spot in line for the Model 3, but according to Electrek, folks can now head over to Tesla’s website and preorder a Model 3 without a reservation.
Prospective buyers have three options to choose from: the $49,000 rear-wheel drive version, the $53,000 dual-motor all-wheel-drive version (both of which include a long-range battery and premium interior trim), and the $64,000 Performance version of the latter.
The most standard option, which starts at $35,000, will be made available in roughly “6-9 months,” says Tesla’s website. Yea, that’s a long wait time, but think of the folks who dropped a deposit on this sucker two years ago, they’re still waiting too, so don’t feel all that bad.
If you’re one of those folks who has been waiting in line for a year or more, sources over at Electrek say Tesla’s making sure you will get your car before new buyers.
It looks like things are picking up at Tesla. Just earlier last week, the company announced it had hit a goal of producing 5,000 Model 3 cars per week. Let’s not forget, Tesla Model 3 production has been a considerable challenge for Tesla, but now it looks like things are going in the right direction. Let’s just hope the company doesn’t run into another snag.
Do you plan on reserving a Model 3 for yourself or will you wait until all the kinks are ironed out? Let us know in the comments below.
