US: Entry-Level Tesla Model 3/Y Delivery Time Extends To February

–>

According to the online design studio, the entry-level Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+) will be delivered in February 2022 (previously January), which is about five months from now. The Long Range and Performance versions are respectively December and November.

A similar situation concerns the Tesla Model Y. The Long Range (AWD) version is now expected in February (previously January), while the Performance version in November.

We guess that Tesla has a very long order backlog, and it's mostly demand related rather than supply, although production constraints might add on top on that.

Estimated delivery time (new orders):

Tesla Model 3:

  • Standard Range Plus: February 2022 (previously January)
  • Long Range: December (previously November)
  • Performance: November (previously 5–7 weeks)

Tesla Model S:

  • Long Range: March–April, 2022 (no change)
  • Plaid: January–February, 2022 (no change)

Tesla Model X:

  • Long Range: March–April, 2022 (no change)
  • Plaid: March–April, 2022 (no change)

Tesla Model Y:

  • Long Range: February 2022 (previously January)
  • Performance: November (previously 5–7 weeks)

Estimated EPA range changes

A separate thing is that we noticed two small changes in Tesla's EPA range for new cars.

First, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+) is now rated at 262 miles (422 km), which is one mile less than before - 263 miles (423 km). That might be some minor adjustment related to ongoing updates to Tesla cars.

The second thing is a higher EPA range of the Tesla Model S Plaid (19" version) - up from 390 miles (628 km) to 396 miles (637 km). That's 1.5% more, and a bit closer to the Long Range version (19") - 405 miles (652 km). The Plaid version with 21" wheels is rated at 348 miles (560 km).
