Order stop for Model 3 version: Tesla has delivery problems in the USA

Freeze Order for Model 3 Version
Tesla has delivery problems in the US

Tesla customers in the US cannot currently order the mid-range Model 3. Elon Musk justifies order stops with long waiting lists. However, customers will have to wait longer for the second model.

Tesla temporarily does not offer the Model 3 in the medium version in North America. CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that the waiting list is too long. The version will be reintroduced when production ramps up. However, there is a certain contradiction, as “Teslamag” reports.

In North America’s Tesla Configurator, the Model 3 could only be ordered as a basic or performance version, i.e. no longer as a “long range”. The middle Model 3 is still displayed in the configurator, but can no longer be selected. It is now under the other two variants with the note “Available in 2023”.

“Teslamag” rates the decision as surprising, because the estimated delivery time for Model Y mentioned in the configurator has moved far into the future. As for “Model Y Performance”, Tesla has announced deliveries for the USA in September, but as “Long Range” it should be available at the earliest in January, probably not until July. In China, the mid-sized Model 3 disappeared from the configurator a year ago without comment and has yet to return, write Tesla experts.

So only the Model 3 is offered in the original basic version with a smaller battery and rear-wheel drive. The Model Y, Model S and Model X are each with the same battery but more powerful drives in the program. There’s a gap in the middle now with the Model 3, while Tesla doesn’t offer an entry-level version for the other three models.
