Tesla Model 3 reservation holders in the US and Canada can finally smash that checkout button
If you reserved a Tesla Model 3, you can now order it through Tesla’s website.
According to Business Insider, Tesla Model 3 reservation holders living in the US and Canada can finally order and configure their order right from Tesla’s website. For those of you keeping track, Tesla opened up its preorders back in March 2016 and received about 450,000 reservations.
For now, the only option available is the Model 3 with the long-range battery, which necessarily isn’t a bad thing. For folks who are just looking for the standard $35,000 base model with the regular battery, you’ll have to wait six to 12 months if you put down a deposit today, according to Tesla’s website.
For customers who dropped a deposit on the Tesla Model 3, here are the three options you have when checking out:
- Rear-wheel-drive – starts at $44,000
- All-wheel-drive – $48,000
- Long-range battery, and the performance version – $64,000
Business Insider notes,
According to Tesla’s website, customers who make new reservations can expect delivery for the rear-wheel-drive version with a long-range battery in four to six months, while delivery for the all-wheel-drive version with a long-range battery and the performance version will take six to nine months.
It’s no secret Tesla has been having a tough time getting these cars out the door, mainly regarding production. As of a couple of days ago, only 30,000 Model 3s have been manufactured, according to documents obtained from Business Insider. The company has been plagued with missed deadlines and a slew of scandals surrounding the company’s treatment of employees and more.
The good news is that it seems like things are turning around and Model 3s should be expected to hit the road fairly soon. Let’s see what happens.
