Tesla just informed that the Tesla Model 3 I pre-ordered on launch day is not coming in 2018. I made the reservation of the Model 3 in Munich Germany on March 31st, 2016. The delivery estimate the Model 3 is now beginning of 2019.
Elon Musk has no problem delivering a Telsa to Marvin Martian, but on earth, he and his Tesla team has a hard time to ramp up the Model 3 production. Delivery of the Model 3 has started end of 2017 in the US.
If you have a Model 3 reservation, you can log in at the Tesla site and click here to see the estimate for your Model 3. Tesla announced this week a loss of for the last quarter.
The company has reiterated to reach a production of 5,000 Model per week by the end of the 2nd quarter and wants to make 2,500 Model 3 by the end of the first quarter. In the last quarter, Tesla shipped only 1,500 Model 3 cars to customers.
One problem that is holding back the Model 3 production is the Gigafactory. Telsa still needs to automate the battery production. A new assembly line is ready, but it’s in Germany.
As the competition is still nowhere near to selling a Model 3 alternative, Tesla still has time. The company is in a unique position to own the electric car segment if they can deliver soon.
